What you can expect
From the floor of the Hanapepe Valley to the summit of Mt. Wai'ale'ale, Kauai's unparalleled natural beauty stretches from sea to sky. Take in the stunning scenery of the Garden Island from the comfort of an Eco-Star helicopter on this high-flying sightseeing tour.
From your spacious, comfortable seat, watch in awe as you soar over spectacular Hanapepe Valley, with its forested vales and rugged cliffs. Continue on to Mana Waiapuna, known as Jurassic Park Falls for its appearance in the film of the same name. Soar close to hidden cascades tumbling out of dense foliage, watching for rainbows in the shimmering mist.
Make your way to Olokele Canyon and then breathtaking Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Stretching more than 10 miles (16 km) long, dropping more than 3,000 feet (900 m) deep, and spanning a mile (1.6 km) wide, this canyon was formed by the collapse of a volcano and carved by the extreme rainfall on the island's central peak, Mount Wai'ale'ale.
Weather permitting, the flight culminates with a visit to the towering summit of Mt. Wai'ale'ale, which, thanks to its 450 inches (1,143 cm) of rain every year, is one of the wettest places on earth. Enter the mountain's massive crater, where 5,000-foot (1,524-m) walls are traced by shimmering 3,000-foot (914-m) waterfalls.
