  • 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.

The sightseeing flight over the island of Kauai was just awesome. Everything went really well, even though we only booked one day in advance, so we could be sure of getting the best weather. And so it was - no cloud in the sky and we had a wonderful view. The organization on site was perfect. After a very nice greeting, it started. Our pilot TJ was very confident, gave us a lot of information and speaks very easy to understand English. He responded to all questions and requests. There were enough opportunities to take photos and he described very well what we are seeing. The flight actually took an hour. All seats are window seats so that you have a good view. Then photos were taken and there was time to look at the machine and speak to the crew. It was a great experience, which I would book again.

Easy booking, prompt confirmation, timely start, friendly staff and pilot. Was not fully aware it’s a propeller plane not a helicopter, but happy I was able to pay less for more air time compared to other companies. For an extra $50 they will mount a GoPro on the wing and provide you with 1 hour video and 800+ photos, totally unobstructed by any glass/reflection.

It was one of my best experiences! Lovely staff, very helpful and attentive. The pilot very nice, young and good connoisseur of the territory. His playlist was very well known during the flight, very much in line with what we were seeing ... In summary: AMAZING!

Easy booking, instant confirmation, booked in the morning, flown at noon. What followed was wonderful and cannot be described. You just have to experience it yourself.
