Wildlife Refuge Eco Tour - Safari Helicopters-Kauai
The flight portion is the same as the Island Safari but upon reaching the Kauai Wildlife Refuge overlooking the Olokele Canyon the helicopter will land at this most unique and beautiful spot. After a 40 minute stopover, the flight will continue on its normal air tour around the island. Your pilot will discuss the Robinson Family history and discuss their plans to develop the property into a wildlife preserve for native Hawaiian plants endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Part of this tours proceeds are going to the preservation of Kauai Wildlife Refuge. **Kauai Wildlife Refuge is located on the Robinson Ranch. The owner Keith Robinson is dedicated to the preservation of Hawaiian Endangered Species Plants. This site over looks the Olokele Canyon and is totally inaccessible to the public. You will be able to view the vastness of this particular canyon and the wonders of possible rainbows and waterfalls in the distance. The canyon is sometimes called the East Fork of the Waimea Canyon and extends from Waimea to the back west side of Mt. Waialeale Crater. There are no public roads or overlooks by land to view this spectacular site. A number of films were produced at this location such as scenes from Jurassic Park. At the stop over site, there are restrooms and picnic tables. Refreshments will also be served.*
