Tom's Tips - Kauai Helicopter Tours


Of all the tours offered on Kauai, the helicopter tours are at the top of the list in terms of desirability. There are so many beautiful sights to be seen on Kauai that simply cannot be seen in any way but from the air. Helicopter tours are popular here regardless of the price, which is always an obstacle when you are visiting Hawaii on vacation. There are a couple of things you can do to deal with the pricing however.

First of all, you can check with the flights we offer that are of a shorter length. It's way better to get up in the air over Kauai for a shorter amount of time than not to get in the air at all. We have some 25 minute flights. Check for the 'Early Bird', 'Late Bird' and Promotional pricing we offer. Another way to deal with price is to get more 'bang for your buck' by including a landing with your air tour. Landing for 40 minutes or so on the pristine Kauai landscape in an isolated mountain top with no-one around and just the sound of nature with the engines off is a great way to stretch your experience to match your dollar cost. You can also do the same thing by choosing to leave from Princeville Heliport if your main intention is to see the NaPali Coast. This departure location is just minutes away from the coastline that many people believe is the most important part of they're flight to begin with. Another way to enhance your experience for your 'dollar paid' would be to take one of the helicopter tours that will just take the two of you on a private tour. You will have a bit more leeway to visit the parts of the island you have a particular interest in.
