Sunshine Helicopters takes you to Kauai’s majestic mountains, magical sea caves, awesome waterfalls and emerald green vistas.  Many parts of Kauai are  inaccessible, and the best way to see the breadth and majesty of Kauai is by air.  Tour Waimea Canyon – the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”  It is truly a spectacular sight from the air.

Mount Waialeale is one of the the wettest spots on earth – with an average annual rainfall of forty feet. Most of the mountain rain drains into the nearby Alakai Swamp, home to several rare species of plants and birds. The eastern slopes of Mount Waialeale  flow over Wailua Falls – famous for the opening scene in the TV show Fantasy Island is one of the dozens of waterfalls you will see.  View majestic Manawaiopuna Falls, seen in the film, “Jurassic Park.”

The  Na Pali Coast, with its dramatic cliffs chiseled by time to  razor sharp peaks, is spellbinding no matter how many times you see it. This is the home of the legendary Bali Hai as seen in South Pacific and yes, it is calling you.

You have option of selecting “First Class” seating next to the pilot, with extra arm, leg room, and superior visibility.  The maximum combined weight for two First Class passengers is 490 lbs.  This is only available for a party that is purchasing both seats.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

You really haven’t seen the island of Kauai until you’ve seen it from above. There is so much beauty on this island that it will leave you speechless. Countless remote waterfalls are just waiting for you to point your camera lens at them! Sunshine Helicopters depart from the main airport in LIhue so they are centrally located … easy to get to from all areas of the island.

We recommend that you plan a helicopter tour for the beginning of your vacation. It will help you get the “lay of the land” and you will likely see places from the air that you will want to go visit on the ground later in your vacation. Keep in mind though, many MANY locations you will see from the helicopter can’t be seen any other way … there are no roads or hiking trails to the island’s most isolated and spectacular waterfalls.
