    It was one of the best experiences we've had while traveling. This flight is a MUST when you are in Kauai. It is only when you have made the flight that the full beauty of Kauai unfolds, which cannot be explored in any other way. With the helicopter you can also get much closer to the waterfalls than e.g. B. small planes. It's best to take the tour at 9:00 or 10:30 a.m. The various songs that are played at certain points are particularly cool. B. the Jurassic Park soundtrack when flying over the waterfalls. The captain was just great.

    Unique experience

    Unique way to experience Kauai. We also took the boat trip to the Napali Coast, but is not nearly as nice as the helicopter ride. Fly through canyons, close to waterfalls and also show the hard to reach beauties of Kauai. Helicopter of very high quality standard and much glazed.

    Maverick provided exceptional service and a fantastic trip!

    Our original flight was limited due to visibility. Chris at Maverick called us in advance and gave us the opportunity to do half our trip or delay to the next day. The sun gods were with us and we got to fly the entire route which we highly recommend. Our pilot, Adam Chase, was great. While watching out for the numerous other helicopters, provided us with a wonder narrative and humor. As my first helicopter flight, it was an awesome experience. Safety was a priority from the quality of the helicopter to personal safety. Thanks for the memories!
