Kauai Discovery Helicopter Tour

With the majority of Kauai's natural wonders inaccessible by ground, the best views are from the sky!

Fly over the Western part of Kauai on this exhilarating flight. Capture a stunning bird's-eye-view from a state of the art Eco-Star Helicopter (EC-130), equipped with quiet technology. Enjoy high levels of service as your expert pilot provides full narration to all the sights, giving you a full insight into Kauai's history. The helicopters are fitted with individual headsets that have voice activated microphones, allowing you to communicate with your pilot and everyone else on the flight.

Soar through Waimea Canyon, known as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” stretching fourteen miles long and one mile wide. Fly over the lush and rugged terrain of the Na Pali-Kona Forest Reserve including Awini Falls and Waialae Falls. Get intimate views of Manawaiopuna Falls, commonly referred to as Jurassic Falls, made famous for its scenes in the film, Jurassic Park. Conclude your flight over Hanapepe Valley, popular for its rich farmland and grand mountain ranges. The Kauai Discovery lasts approximately 25 minutes.
