Kauai Explorer Helicopter Tour

Capture a stunning bird's-eye view of Kauai in a state-of-the-art Eco-Star Helicopter (EC-130) which is equipped with quiet technology making for a breathtaking flight.

This unforgettable flight features two of Kauai’s most recognized natural landmarks: the Napali Coast and Waimea Canyon.

Grasp the magnitude of the Napali Coast from the air, Kauai’s 17-mile coastline known for its emerald-hued cliffs with razor-sharp ridges above the Pacific Ocean. Dubbed “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific" by Mark Twain, Waimea Canyon is known for its desert landscape and vibrant colours.

View the spectacular shoreline as you fly toward the Bali Hai Cliffs along the North Shore and Mount Makana. Travel past the tropical rainforest, Mount Waialeale, one of the wettest places on Earth.

Get a bird’s-eye-view of Jurassic Falls, one of Kauai’s most renowned waterfalls, and conclude your flight over the Hanapepe Valley, famous for its scenes in the film, “Jurassic Park.”

You will 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.
