Blue Hawaiian Helicopters’ Kauai ECO Adventure

As the only helicopter tour company that serves the entire Aloha State—Kauai, Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island—Blue Hawaiian Helicopters offers aerial tours that take guests to many of the state’s most spectacular and remote locales. For those visiting Kauai, also known as the “Garden Island,” Blue Hawaiian features the 55-minute Kauai ECO Adventure, which lets guests experience the very best of what many call “the world’s most beautiful island.”

Aboard one of the company’s new, state-of-the-art Eco-Star helicopters, the world’s most advanced touring helicopter, the flight glides through Hanapepe Valley to Mana Waiapuna, famously known as “Jurassic Park” Falls for its appearance in the blockbuster film (for which Blue Hawaiian flew the aerial photography!). An early highlight is Waimea Canyon, known as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” for its diversity of rock formations and sheer natural beauty. The breathtaking forest-cloaked ridges of the Na Pali Coast come next: This stunning 15-mile stretch of coastline features majestically sculpted cliffs that drop thousands of feet directly into the Pacific Ocean. Fast-flowing streams and waterfalls punctuate the narrow valleys between ridges, and stone-walled terraces at the bottoms of the valleys mark areas where isolated communities of Hawaiians cultivated taro.

Following visits to Hanalei Bay and the Bali Hai cliffs, the tour concludes with an unforgettable trip (weather permitting) to the extinct Mount Waialeale volcano, which is the wettest place on earth and features 3,000-foot waterfalls. The Kauai ECO Adventure departs multiple times daily from Lihue Heliport.
