We took a helicopter ride on the first day and it definitely got us excited to go exploring as much as possible in the time that we had. There really doesn't seem to be a better way to see the island since most of it is so inaccessible.
It's an amazing experience and well worth the money to do it.
Our pilot's name was "Helicopter Joe" and he was pretty awesome. It was the smoothest ride we've ever taken...he was a pretty amazing pilot. We were 15 feet in the air before we even knew he had taken off! The name of the company was HeliUSA.
They try and get you to buy a video before you take off and the photographer/salesman tells you that you won't get good pictures if you try to take them from inside the helicopter...don't believe him. We didn't take any pictures for the fist 3/4 of the ride and then when we finally did (as we were about to land) they came out perfectly fine.

Directions: We left from a small airport just south of the Princeville.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
