  • Kauai: Sightseeing Flight over Napali Coast & Waimea Canyon

    1. Kauai: Sightseeing Flight over Napali Coast & Waimea Canyon

    Kauai offers the visitor spectacular and dramatic views at every turn. But this lovely island is only truly appreciated from the air. Aboard your scenic flight tour, you'll experience the best of Kauai on one incredible adventure. We'll fly you over the Garden Island's most dramatic and beautiful areas so that you can truly get a sense of this majestic place. Most of these places are completely inaccessible by car, and remain untouched by human hands. Your expert pilot will sail you over the cathedral-like spires of Napali Coastline and high above the Hanalei Bay's white crescent sand beach. You can snap some pictures of the azure blue waters below, as well as monumental red valley walls of Waimea Canyon. The hour-long flight takes you past all this and more, and is a chance to experience the untouched beauty of this spectacular place.

    Ray the pilot was an excellent host. I suffer from motion sickness and he took extra care to not have the flight be as bumpy to save me some discomfort. I appreciated that! The views were some of the best I've ever seen in my life. His wife Jill was kind & gracious as well. I highly recommend this tour/adventure.
