Explore from the air the unreachable beauty that is Kauai. In this extraordinarily exciting helicopter tour of Kauai, you will see the Na Pali Coast, Waimea Canyon, Wailua Falls and Mount Waialeale, while learning about the legends and history of the awesome island that your pilot calls home.
After being picked up at the pier, you'll transfer approximately 20 minutes to the helipad, where you'll have a safety and instructional briefing. You will then board your helicopter for a spectacular 50-minute view of the island. During this Kauai tour, you will fly over Waimea Canyon, dubbed by Mark Twain as "The Grand Canyon of the South Pacific." It is truly a spectacular sight. Just outside the canyon is Manawaiopuna Falls, which you may recognize from many dinosaur movies.
Mount Waialeale is recognized as one of the wettest spots on earth, with an average annual rainfall of an incredible forty feet. Most of the mountain rain drains into the nearby Alakai Swamp, home to several rare species of plants and birds. Wailua Falls is also known as Fantasy Island Waterfalls, for its cameo appearance in the 70s TV series.
The legendary Na Pali Coast, with its dramatic cliffs chiseled by time to a razor sharp beckoning, is spellbinding no matter how many times you see it. This is the home of the legendary Bali Hai, as seen in the movie, "South Pacific," and yes, it is calling you.
Upon arrival back at the helipad, you will have the opportunity to purchase a photo of yourself and your helicopter, or a video of the flight. You will then be returned to the pier.
Note: Price includes transportation from pier. Flight may reach a height of 5,000 feet.

Tour by helicopter is the only way, it was so cool. The pilot brought us all over the island to see waterfalls, shoreline, canyons, farms, forests. The tour was worth the money.
We had Ana maxing time in our helicopter ride in Kauai. The scenic views were simply breathtaking and the pilot was excellent. Highly recommended to everyone. Although pricy, I do believe it to be the highlight of our trip to Hawaii.

It was a perfect day for this once in a lifetime experience. It did not start well as there was no one at the pier to meet me. I had received communication the day before and I then had to call their office. First they said I was scheduled for the next day. Of course I had proof. They wanted me to find my way to their office. I was blunt. They came and got me and all went well from then on.

This adventure was the highlight of our week and I believe the only way to really appreciate the beauty and glory of this island in the short amount of time we had for a visit. The crew were very professional and safety-conscious which really put my husband at ease so that he could truly enjoy the experience even though he is not fond of flying!
