Air Tours on Kauai

By Team


Helicopter over Napali Coast | Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) / Tor Johnson

Kauai has gained a reputation for its spectacular tour helicopter flights. Although tours are available on all the islands, Kauai continues to lead the state in sheer numbers because it is an extraordinary experience that can’t be matched anywhere else.

From a helicopter, the ageless beauty of the island’s rugged interior comes into full perspective. Here nature has blanketed the uneven terrain with lush waterfall-fed valleys, arid, multihued canyons and spectacular, sculpted cliffs that rise 4,000 feet from the ocean. Rising out of the wilderness is Mt. Wai`ale`ale, a 5,148-foot extinct volcano and one of the wettest places on earth.

This island tempts adventure like schools of flashing sardines attract hungry marlin. A ride in a powered hang glider is one way to satisfy the urge.

Floating above the surface in a mini, two-person flying machine is an adventure that comes on the wings of a lightweight, open-air aircraft that dips and soars through the air like a bird on a joy ride.
