Kauai is known as the Garden Isle, because it is draped in lush rainforests that stretch for miles over jagged volcanic peaks and valleys studded with waterfalls. The oldest and northernmost island of the Hawaiian chain is also the most untamed, with only 10% of the island being accessible by car. To see the entire island of Kauai in all of its glory you will need to take to the air and explore each unique region and stunning landmark.

Depart from Lihue
Unforgettable views don’t even begin to describe what you will experience on this thrilling tour of Kauai. After departing from Lihue you will be taken to Manawaiopuna Falls in the Hanapepe Valley also known by the nickname “Jurassic Park Falls” as they were featured prominently in the first installment of the famous movie franchise. After exiting the valley, you will be taken over two canyons that Kauai is known for around the world, the Olokele Canyon and the massive Waimea Canyon. Cascading down the walls of each of these canyons are dozens if not hundreds of waterfalls.
Heading back towards the ocean will take you and your fellow guests along the Napali Coast where you will be delighted by views of 3000-foot sea cliffs and the secret valleys of Nualolo and Kalalau. Next up is the North Shore of Kauai which reveals the lush green Hanalei Valley and the clear blue water of Hanalei Bay. This region also contains the beautiful Princeville resort area. As the tour wraps up, your pilot will take you into Mount Wai’ale’ale crater, a dormant volcano that sees more than 400 inches of rainfall each year. Every inch of this shield volcano is covered in mist and rich vegetation, making it the perfect view to cap off your 1 hour tour of the Garden Isle.

Hanapepe Valley is one of the most beautiful and fertile areas on the island of Kauai. The valley is home to many different types of fruits and vegetables, including bananas, sugar cane, and sweet potatoes. In addition to these crops, Hanapepe Valley is also known for its salt ponds. Salt was an important trade good for early Hawaiian settlers, and the right to harvest salt from these ponds was passed down through families for generations. Today, you can still see the salt ponds in Hanapepe Valley when you take a helicopter tour of Kauai.
Waimea Canyon is one of Kauai’s most popular tourist destinations. Its dramatic views and unique geology make it a must-see for anyone visiting the island. Although it is not as large or as old as the Grand Canyon in Arizona, Waimea Canyon is still an impressive sight. It stretches for 14 miles, is 1 mile wide, and is more than 3,600 feet deep. From the cabin of the helicopter, you will enjoy panoramic views of the canyon, including its crested buttes, rugged crags, and deep valley gorges.
On a helicopter tour of the Napali Coast, you’ll see dramatic cliffs, towering waterfalls, and lush rainforests. You’ll also get a bird’s-eye view of the Kalalau Valley, an isolated valley that can only be reached by hiking or boat. The Napali Coast is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and a helicopter tour is the best way to see it.
