In the late 1990's there were over a dozen helicopter companies on Kauai. Accidents and mergers have reduced that number by half. Even still on a nice day they put a lot of traffic in the air and delight almost 2000 guests. In a typical year, there are 12,000 separate flights.
The Helicopter tours must leave from an airport facility. Consequently the majority of companies are based out of the same Lihue Airport at which you arrived. Of special interest to guests staying in the Princeville Area and the Cliffs Resort are tours that leave from the Princeville Airport -- just a short 10 minutes away.
At one time they were the most convenient Helicopter Company because they departed from the Princeville Airport. Current Heli USA website says they are no longer departing from Princeville. But every time we visit there is a machine at the Princeville heliport. Call for details.
