Air Kauai is closed Christmas Day, but we are open for the rest of the holiday season! This is a great time of year to enjoy a helicopter ride. Waterfalls are especially spectacular during the rainy season and if you are lucky, you may also spot a whale from the air! Here’s what some of our guests have to say about their experiences:
