Blue Hawaiian Helicopters - Kauai ECO Adventure
Enjoy a great Kauai helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, which was named "Hawaii's premiere helicopter tour company" by National Geographic. Departing from Lihue, your adventure begins with a flight over beautiful Hanapepe Valley and on to Mana Waiapuna, the waterfall made popular in the movie Jurassic Park.
The tour then continues on to the smaller Olokele Canyon, before moving on to the eye-popping Waimea Canyon, known as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” The multi-colored rock walls and deep green valleys are a spectacular sight to see!
As you approach Kauai’s north shore, the Na Pali Coast comes into view. Enjoy gorgeous views of 3,000-foot sea cliffs, caves, isolated beaches and waterfalls. You’ll also get to see the deep blue waters of Hanalei Bay and the Princeville resort area.
Last but not least, weather permitting, you will see the crowning glory of the Garden Isle: Mt. Waialeale, the wettest spot on earth, with an average rainfall of 450-500 inches annually! Flying into the center of the crater with its 5,000-foot walls towering above and its 3,000-foot waterfalls surrounding you is a breathtaking sight.
