Whether you’re planning a Hawaii honeymoon or family vacation, the Island of Kauai offers visitors a wide range of exciting activities to choose from that will leave you breathless at the end of the day. Among the many activities is one, however, that stands apart from the rest: a helicopter ride! There is no better way to take in the beauty of the “Garden Isle” than observing every waterfall, sea cliff, valley and mountain range from above.
A helicopter tour during your Kauai vacation is an excellent way to view the island’s most breathtaking natural wonders, including the Na Pali Coast and the Waimea Canyon. The Na Pali Coast, located on the northwest shore of Kauai, is 15 miles of rugged sea cliffs rising 3,000 feet above untouched shoreline. The area is home to clear-walled valleys and cascading waterfalls. With no roads leading to this beautiful location, visitors can either take a boat or helicopter ride. The Waimea Canyon, considered the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” is a whopping ten miles long, one mile wide and more than 3,500-feet deep. In addition to these locations, a helicopter tour will take you through the crystal-clear waters of Hanalei Bay, Hanapepe Valley, Olokele Canyon and Mana Waiapuna, also known as “Jurassic Park Falls.” If the weather permits, the spectacular aerial ride also passes by the ancient volcano Mt. Waialeale.
