Jurassic Falls - by Island Helicopters

Don't tell but, I’m a chicken about flying in general so I haven’t tried a helicopter tour yet ... however, I know a lot of folks that have done it and rave about them.  The great feature of taking a tour by helicopter is that you often get to see and visit places not accessible by any other means.  I guess I'm really missing out here.

On Kauai, there is a special helicopter tour that lets you experience something that landlubbers cannot plus also offers an excellent flight tour of the island.

Jurassic Falls” Waterfall Landing Tour it is the most elite tour offered by Island Helicopters.  Passengers experience the incredible beauty and force of a 400 ft. waterfall – made famous in “Jurassic Park” – which only accessible by helicopter because of its location deep in one of Kauai’s interior valleys. 

The journey begins at the Lihue Airport where you will board one of the new AStars equipped with ceiling to floor glass windows and doors and BoseX noise canceling stereo headsets. 

  • After flying over several very scenic areas, you head on to Manawaiopuna Falls, better known as “Jurassic Falls”.   
  • After landing near the base of the waterfall, your pilot guides you along an existing trail and footbridge to the front of the waterfall where you have the opportunity to take photos or just enjoy the experience.  
  • You will then be guided back to the aircraft and once you have lifted off the ground, the tour resumes with the signature tour, “Kauai Grand”, Kauai’s most personalized deluxe 50-60 minute helicopter circle island tour of Kauai.  

Note:  The waterfall landing tour is not available on Sundays and seating is limited daily, so advance reservations are required.
