Kauai ECO Adventure Helicopter Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Join us on a first class ECO Adventure over the Garden Isle of Kauai. You'll fly the incredible new American Eurocopter Eco-Star, which reduces overflight noise by approximately 50%, has individual Business Class style seats, two-way communication with your pilot, and expansive glass for outstanding sweeping views of Kauai's incomparable natural beauty. Your flight begins with a flight to spectacular Hanapepe Valley, then Mana Waiapuna, also referred to as "Jurassic Park Falls." Then you'll travel up to the Olokele Canyon before moving on to Waimea Canyon, the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific." Complete your tour with stunning views of the Na Pali coast and Bali Hai Cliffs, pristine Hanalei Bay, and weather permitting, Mt Waialeale, the wettest spot on earth.
  • See the Garden Isle from the air on a Kauai helicopter tour
  • Get amazing aerial views of the Waimea Canyon and Na Pali Coast
  • Drop into the dormant crater of Mt. Waialeale
  • Eco-Star aircraft reduces overhead noise pollution
What to Expect
Meet your pilot at the Lihue heliport and board a new American Eurocopter Eco-Star, designed to reduce noise pollution and provide prime sightseeing through expanded viewing glass. Ride in comfort in business class-style seats and communicate with your pilot via a two-way headset.

The flight begins over the Hanapepe Valley, next swooping above Mana Waiapuna falls, featured in Jurassic Park. See the red ravines of Olokele and Waimea Canyons, the towering spires of the Na Pali Coast, the curve of Hanalei Bay, and the resorts of Princeville.

Weather permitting, the grand finale is a dip into the spectacular Mt. Waialeale crater, which gets more rainfall than any place on the planet. You’ll take in stunning views of the jagged crater walls and tropical waterfalls dropping 3,000 feet (915 meters) into the center.

Your tour ends back at the helipad.

Although reluctant to go because I'm both claustrophobic and afraid of heights, I agreed to see what everyone was talking about. I'm so glad I did! The first few minutes I had some anxiety, but that all dissipated once I saw the incredible views. Our...More

All seats have great views! I don't think a window seat can be guaranteed, as someone else responded, they need to distribute the weight of the passengers for safety reasons.

It is slower than an airplane and you can get up closer to the sites. We literally dropped down into canyons and flew right up to waterfalls. Airplanes would have to be at a much higher altitude. Our photos are amazing.

I would say to either give them a call or look at their online site.
