    Vintage Biplane Flight over Kauai

    Head to Lihue Airport at your pre-arranged departure time for your Kauai biplane tour. Meet your expert pilot, receive a safety orientation, and step inside a modern fixed-wing biplane for a safe, comfortable, scenic flight over Kauai. You'll be provided with vintage cloth helmet and goggles, letting you travel back in time and enjoy an authentic and nostalgic flying experience. Throughout your flight, you can listen and talk to your pilot through your 2-way headset. 45-Minute Flight: East Shore and North Shore. Heading north along Kauai's East Shore, pass popular hotels and beaches such as Kauai Beach Resort, Kauai Beach Villas and Coco Palms, where Elvis made the romantic movie Blue Hawaii.  View the Wailua Golf Course and the snaking Wailua River, and spot Fern Grotto and the imposing Sleeping Giant mountain ridge, also known as Nounou Mountain. Your pilot will tell you about this mountain's ancient Hawaiian legends as you fly past. Fly over rustic Kapa'a Town and pristine Keali'a Beach, glide along the Anahola mountain range, and pass by the northernmost most point in Hawaii, the Kilauea Lighthouse. Continue up the Kilauea River toward the jagged cliffs of Hanalei Valley, and then soar over the ridge of Mt Waialeale, the wettest spot on earth, to admire cascading waterfalls. Make your way to Kilohana Crater, one of the main volcanoes that created Kauai, and then pass over Wailua Falls and Opaeka'a Falls before arriving back at Lihue Airport. 1-Hour Flight: Whole-Island Tour. After admiring the sights above, continue over Kauai's sunny South Shore, whose highlights include famous Poipu Beach, Spouting Horn, Kipu Kai, Shipwreck Beach, Lawai Beach and Kauai Coffee, Hawaii's largest coffee plantation. Soar over Hanapepe Valley and Olokele Valley, and then take a big U-turn inside breathtaking Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Descend over open fields to Polihale Beach, the largest beach in Hawaii, which stretches along the ridged Na Pali Coast. Hear stories about the ancient legends of this sacred coastline, where Hawaiians lived in ultimate privacy centuries ago. You'll also see the Cathedrals of Honopu'u and the Honopu'u Arches, where several Hollywood movies were filmed, as well as Kalalau Valley.

    Kayak Tour

    (1)
    Not all the watersports in Hawaii take place on the beach. Head upriver during this guided kayak escape and discover just how much fun there is to be had inland! Not only is the Wailua River the only navigable stream in the whole of Polynesia, it also offers relatively little current, making it the perfect site for a leisurely escape into nature. After a brief training orientation, you'll be off and paddling. Two miles of upstream adventure await! After passing an old Hawaiian Village, you'll arrive at a North Fork island. Once you've secured your kayak, you'll continue your adventure on foot, finding yourself immersed in the tropical rain forest of the Wailua River Valley. There, pristine canyons and isolated waterfalls await your exploration. Bring lunch and take some time to rest up for your trip back!

    Kauai Waimea Canyon Experience

    Waimea Canyon on Kauai is the largest canyon in the Pacific and is a dramatic sight to behold. The canyon measures 10 miles long, 1 mile wide, and more than 3,500-feet deep. It was carved thousands of years ago by rivers and floods that flowed from Mount Waialeale's summit which receives an average of 440 inches of rain a year, making it the wettest spot on earth.

    The lines in the Waimea Canyon walls depict different volcanic eruptions and lava flows that have occurred over the centuries. Even though it is smaller than the Grand Canyon of Arizona, Waimea Canyon rivals it's beauty. Numerous lookouts and hikes offer terrific views of every aspect of this natural wonder. The elevation of Waimea Canyon makes the air 10-15 degrees cooler than in the valley and by afternoon many areas are often shrouded in clouds.
