Helicopter And Airplane
One of the top Activities of Kauai is an air tour aboard a helicopter or airplane.Kauai is home to some of the most amazing scenery in the world. Many locations can only be seen by air. A helicopter flight reveals these hidden treasures. It’s an experience that is truly magical. Although no two flights are exactly alike, there is a set flight pattern that takes you clockwise around the island. A typical flight will depart from Lihue Airport, and follow a volcanic ridgeline toward the center of the island. The first major waterfall is called Manawaipuna Falls which appeared in the original Jurassic Park. Next, you’ll fly across several vast and inaccessible canyons until you reach “The Grand Canyon Of The Pacific” Waimea Canyon. The pilot will peak into several nooks and crannies, revealing hidden waterfalls and dramatic landscapes. Next is the incredible Na Pali coastline. This area, with its many tall narrow valleys is made for helicopter flights. Your pilot will enter some of these valleys as you work your way toward north shore. Tunnels Reef, posh celebrity homes and pretty Hanalei Town with its signature taro fields are seen as once again journey inland. You’ll cruise through the lush, waterfall dotted Hanalei Valley. The grand finale, Wai’ale’ale Crater is next (weather permitting). We hope it is clear on your flight! Total flight time can last anywhere from 45 – 90 minutes. More time in the air means more time explore extra locations and get up close views. 45 minutes is plenty but longer flights are worth it! Read on to learn about all the flight options. Remember, can’t really go wrong with an air tour of Kauai.
