Kauai Helicopter Adventure
Sale Price: $289.00
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.

We were picked up promptly as scheduled from the cruise ship pier. From there we were taken to the office of the Helicopter company and shown a safety video. We then went to the airport, were given a flotation device and boarded the aircraft. We had a mixture of blue skies and off and on rain, but nothing inhibited great views of the interior of the island, the Waiamia canyon and the rugged coast line. We saw too many waterfalls to count, and a number of rainbows. Our pilot was very competent and knowledgeable. We would use them again without question!

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Kauai. The scenery we encountered we doubt you could see any other way. All personnel were courteous and helpful and made us feel well at ease.

Had a wonderful time! The view was majestic! All and more than I imagined! Pilot was very capable and handled the helicopter smoothly. Important because I can get air sick...didn’t due to his skill and gravol! Took some beautiful photos and video so I can always remember! Highly recommend this tour to everyone.

My first-time experience in a helicopter was great - almost like a roller coaster when approaching from the side of a mountain; the garden island is beautiful from this view - movie sites, the Hawaiian grand canyon; beaches, rainforests
