Took my Mother-in-Law (82) and her sister (79) on a once in a life time 60 minute flight of Ohau. I had a lot of concern they would scared due to the turbulence and just the flight overall but they had the biggest grins on their face when we landed and both wanted to do it again.

The open door let me see so much clearer. The staff was very professional and kind. Booking was easy. Wished there was a pickup and drop off to and from my hotel. Pilot was new and needed more island knowledge to answer our questions but he flew the helicopter super 👌
