Kauai's newest and most elite tour is Island Helicopters' exclusive 75-85 minute "Jurassic Falls" Waterfall Landing Tour. Island Helicopters is the only company on Kauai permitted to land at a waterfall and we are very honored to be allowed to show Kauai's visitors and kamaaina Hawaii's most famous waterfall. Our pilots gently land the helicopter near the base of the waterfall, escort you along a jungle pathway up the the very front of the waterfall where you will actually feel the mist and power of this magnificent 400 ft. waterfall. The picture taking opportunities are incredible. After spending approximately 25 minutes on the ground, we will get you back into the helicopter and continue on with our deluxe circle island tour. This tour is available five days and week and seated is limited.
Our signature 50-60 minute "Kauai Grand" deluxe circle island tour departs daily from the Lihue Airport. As you leave the airport you will see the Nawiliwili Harbor, Menehune Fish Pond, Kipu Kai and the Hoary Head Mountain Range. As we head west you will see Hanapepe Valley, home to the waterfall featured in Jurassic Park, then over the Olokele Canyon, through the Waimea Canyon and then on to the Napali Coast. We fly along the coastline and into some beautiful valleys, including Nualolo Aina and Kalalau Valley. Next we are off to Hanalei Valley, Mt. Waialeale Crater, Wailua Falls and Kilohana Crater. Throughout the tour you will be given a live personalized narration by your professional pilot and your tour is choreographed to music.
Island Helicopters flies six passenger AStars equipped with custom ceiling to floor glass windows and doors (like flying without doors but in a safe climate controlled environment), individual leather seats, air conditioning, two way communication between pilot and passengers and BoseX noise cancelling headsets.
Unlike some of our competitors, we are a Kauai owned and operated company. We are small by choice, bigger does not make you better. We have been flying from the Lihue Airport longer than any company in Hawaii, over 29 years. Curt Lofstedt, owner along with his wife Bonnie, has been flying tours in Hawaii since 1973 and personally has over 28,000 accident free hours. He personally selects and trains all of our professional pilots.

We are also offering a $50 per person savings off the regular rate for our "Jurassic Falls" Waterfall Landing Tour. In addition, you will receive one complimentary screen saver per family which features 34 aerial photographs taken from our actual tours and charters put together in a slide show format for your computer.
