Day 4 - Helicopter Ride

8:20 AM Sunday, October 28, 2007

The helicopter ride was amazing! We took a tour that was recommended to us in a guide we receveived as a gift. The guide was awesome and if you ever make it to Kauai, make sure you pick up the book called "The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook," it really is geared toward a "local" experience. So much so that the locals hate the book because it ruins all their favorite spots with tourists!
Anyway, the chopper was cool... kind of felt like you were in a really fun episode of Airwolf (for those that don't remember that show, look it up... it was awesome).
We flew the hour long tour with the doors off and let me tell you, that's the way to do it... you really feel everything, the height, the wind, the fragility of the chopper, everything. The Na Pali coast HAS TO BE SEEN FROM THE AIR, to fully appreciate majesty of it. Well worth the small fortune that you have to pay to ride one, but Kauai is considered helicopter island, because there's about 60% of the island that you can't see from any place, but the air.


  1. I would love to take this ride someday. When I went with an old roommate we hiked the NaPali coast- I highly recommend that. It was absolutly amazing.
