One of my first jobs when I moved to the islands in 1988, was selling activities. Due to the high price of Helicopter Tours and my lack of first hand knowledge, I rarely sold air tours. That all changed after my first Helicopter ride. Once I experienced the “WOW Factor” of viewing the islands from above – I was hooked!
There is no other way to get the spectacular, bird’s-eye view of the Garden Island except by helicopter. The helicopters in Hawaii are especially designed for touring. One of Kauai’s most popular activities as it affords passengers dramatic views of the island’s many areas not accessible by car. Expect to be amazed by awesome vistas and you will not be disappointed.
Verdant valleys and cascading waterfalls are only the beginning of a long list of fabulous sights. Your pilot may point out waterfalls that have appeared in popular movies like Jurassic Park, Six Days & Seven Nights, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Descendants, Soul Surfer… just to name a few.
If your lucky enough to experience a rain shower during your flight, watch for a rainbow or possibly the entire circle.
Get ready for some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and a highlight of your vacation. Taking a Helicopter Tour is one of Top 10 Activities, I recommend to visitors, family and friends. It is well worth every penny.
One of the best deals on Kauai is Safari Helicopter’a Waterfall Deluxe. Regular price $204 (with a Shaka Gold Card only $155 pp).
