What is the absolute best way to see Kauai? By air, of course! With over 80% of the island being inaccessible by car, this private helicopter tour is just the ticket.

Private Kauai Helicopter, Doors Off

Board your private helicopter tour for a true doors-off thrill of a lifetime and prepare yourself for an incredible trip in the sky as you view the Garden Isle of Kauai, a verdant paradise of lush valleys, rugged mountains, and beautiful beaches; a place where nature reigns supreme! Your helicopter can accommodate a maximum amount of 3 guests only, truly a very intimate and personal encounter.

After your pick-up from the port area, set off to the Lihue airport, and their heliport where your transportation awaits. This exciting, private experience will give you a "Doors off Kauai Helicopter Tour" where you discover panoramic views so beautiful, they will take your breath away.

With almost one full hour in the air you will soon explore the stunning Manawaiopuna Falls, also known as "Jurassic Park Falls," wedged in between the emerald green mountain top of the Hanapepe Valley. Soar over the amazing views of the Olokele Canyon and majestic Waimea Canyon. Waimea Canyon is also known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," where you can catch sight of dozens of cascading waterfalls including the 2000-foot Waipo'o falls.

Then it's on to the sacred Napali Coast with its 3500-foot sea cliffs plummeting into the vast Pacific Ocean. Along the Napali coast you will fly into the secret valleys of Nualolo and Kalalau valley with their amazing landscape. On to Kauai's magical North Shore which reveals the sculpted green Hanalei Valley with more waterfalls than you can count. The pilot will then guide you over the turquoise-blue waters of Hanalei Bay and the Princeville Resort area.

Finally, set a course into Mt Wai'ale'ale crater, a dormant shield volcano with over 450 inches of rainfall each year, making it one of the wettest places on earth. Witness the most beautiful emerald green vegetation draped over the mist-covered mountain, with 3,000-foot cascading waterfalls filling each crevice, a truly awe-inspiring finish to your adventure in the air over the Garden Island of Kauai.

Please Note: Your tour is narrated by a highly experienced, professional pilot certified by the State of Hawaii as an air tour guide. You can choose if you want your experience to be "Doors On" or "Off". The private helicopters can accommodate a maximum of 3 guests in total. If you have more than 3 guests in your group, multiple helicopters can be booked for the same flight time. Please take this information into consideration when booking.
