Full description

Take a journey on and over the Garden Isle and see scenery that's been the backdrop for Hollywood blockbusters for decades on this Kauai helicopter trip. See Manawaiopuna Falls, Olokele Canyon, Waimea Canyon, and the Na Pali Coast. 

Take off on an up-to-date helicopter and immediately start taking in a bird's eye view of the lush jungles, red canyons, choppy seas, and gorgeous landscapes that make up Kauai, the oldest island in the Hawaiian Islands archipelago. 

Marvel at Manawaiopuna Falls, also known as Jurrasic Park Falls thanks to it being featured in the hit 1993 Steven Spielberg film. This privately-owned location is only accessible by helicopter, making it part of the 80% of Kauai that isn’t accessible by car.

Land in Olokele Canyon, home to endangered plant life. Once kapu (forbidden), guests can now enjoy this pristine paradise valley. Soar over Waimea Canyon next, and see characteristic crimson and emerald jagged cliffs.

Before heading back to the starting point of the trip, enjoy views of the world-famous Napali Coast. Spot jagged cliffs rising straight from the sea, making for one of Hawaii's most famous destinations.

This was well worth the price. It was amazing to see everything from the air! The pilot (Katie) was knowledgeable and friendly. Landing on the mountain was so cool and we even got to meet Keith Robinson! My husband and I are both nervous when it comes to heights but I wasn’t nervous on this ride at all! It was a once in a lifetime experience and ended up being breathtaking and amazing!!

We were easily rebooked due to the bad weather. The flight is a "must do" on Kauai, the impressions of nature there cannot be put into words. Since most of the island can only be reached by helicopter. Thanks to Safari Tours, we will always remember the flight and the impressions...

For my first time it blew me away. It was much smoother than I expected and Kyle did a super job with all the flying details. We saw all the sights by air and the music accompanied was spot on. The Jurassic Park filming locations were incredible. Would do this again in a heartbeat !!!!
