Fly from Oahu to Kauai for an all-day tour. See the beauty of the Garden Isle with a land tour & get a bird's-eye view of Na Pali Coast on a helicopter flight.
Fly from Oahu to Lihue, taking a motorcoach tour of the beautiful Garden Isle. Stops include locations made famous in films such as Jurassic Park (Kapaa Town), King Kong (Kealia Overlook) and Raiders of the Lost Ark (Kalalea Mountain), among others. The finale takes you on a helicopter adventure over Waimea Canyon and Mt. Waialeale, giving you spectacular aerial views of Kauai.
We wanted to save time but not transfer hotels so we booked a day trip to Kauai from Oahu. It was an excellent overall experience. We were picked up on time but I'm not sure why it was so early because we waited a couple hours before the flight. Our guide was lovely and we enjoyed the movie tie-in to many scenic spots. Lunch was very good at the cafe used in The Descendants film. I would have liked a little more time to explore Hanalei but we did have time for a yummy shave ice. The beach with the long pier was memorable. The helicopter tour was exciting and gave us an entirely different perspective of the island. Once back at the airport we had to wait more than 2 hours for the flight. Not sure why these day trips are set up this way. It makes for a longer day than should be necessary.
