Description

Take to the skies over the scenic wonders of the Garden Isle in a doors-off helicopter. Your adventure begins at the Lihue Airport, where you climb aboard a 4-passenger plus pilot, Hughes 500 helicopter. This customized chopper has had its doors removed, making the flight a very sensory encounter with the island's sights. After take-off, on the clockwise flight around the island, the historic Menehune Fishpond quickly comes into view as you follow the Huleia River then pass over the famous eucalyptus Tree Tunnel.

Soar over Manawaiopuna Falls, made famous in the first Jurassic Park movie, as you make your way to the dramatic cliffs and valleys of Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific—there's no better way to take in this pristine landscape's grandeur than from the air.

Your experienced pilot will take you over the postcard-worthy Na Pali Coast's spectacular sea cliffs and descend into tropical valleys only accessible by air. The North Shore beaches and shallow reefs color the tropical coastline between Ke'e and Hanalei.

One of the most spectacular and weather-dependent parts of the flight is the verdant crater of Mount Waialeale at the heart of the island. If the conditions allow, your pilot will show you views of one of the rainiest places on Earth before returning to the airports with a final turn over Wailua Falls.

Flying with the doors off is not for everyone. Those that partake in the adventure remember it forever!

Stephanie, our pilot, was very knowledgeable and was great. If you only do one thing while in Kauai, this is it. The views are simply spectacular.

MUST Do this activity!! It was fantastic life time experience. View was spectacular and breathtaking. Jason is the best helicopter pilot ever. He was very skilled and experienced. He was flying so closed to cliffs and canyon for us. Highly recommend if you visit Kauai!!
