Some of Kauai’s most beautiful gems are rather hidden, so to speak, so we’re highlighting the top ways to explore the island here- so you don’t miss a thing.

Visiting Kauai is like stepping back in time; it is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands. As for the most enchanting? We think it just might be. Home to some of the Earth’s rarest plants and birds, one of the world’s most breathtaking coastlines, and even the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," Kauai is truly incredible.

Helicopter Tours

Most areas of Kauai are inaccessible by road and very remote, making access difficult. However, a helicopter tour will have you soaring over waterfalls, dropping into the Waimea Canyon, or marveling at the spectacular NaPali Coast from above- it’s a mesmerizing perspective and bucket list adventure you’ll never forget.

NaPali Coast Tours

Mystical, life-changing, perfection… no words can do this geologic wonder justice. Waterfalls plummet into deep valleys, lush green cliffs plunge to the sea, and centuries of Hawaiian culture and mana (spiritual power) are palpable. The NaPali Coast is unlike any other place on Earth and Mother Nature’s artfully-chiseled masterpiece beckons you- please don’t miss the call.
