Sunshine Helicopters - Ultimate Kauai Adventure
This Ultimate Kauai Adventure helicopter tour takes you to all of the most beautiful sights the island of Kauai is known for, including the Na Pali Coast, Waimea Canyon, Wailua Falls and Mt. Waialeale. Wailua Falls was made popular in the TV series Fantasy Island, and Waimea Falls was called the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” by author Mark Twain.
Mt. Waialeale is the wettest spot on earth, receiving an average annual rainfall of about 40 feet! Most of the mountain rain flows into the nearby Alakai Swamp, home to several rare species of plants and birds. The Na Pali Coast on the island’s north shore is home to spectacular sea cliffs. It’s a breathtaking sight no matter how many times you see it. This area is also home to the Bali Hai cliffs, made famous in the movie South Pacific.
The helicopter tour includes a ground safety briefing, complimentary coffee or tea, pilot's personal narration and choreographed music recorded on live digital video. A DVD of your actual flight narrated and orchestrated by your pilot is available for purchase.
