AAA Editor Notes
Safari Helicopter Tours departs from Līhu‘e Heliport. Check-in is at 3225 Akahi St. Passengers on the 50- to 60-minute Deluxe Waterfall Safari Tour hear narration, music and two-way communication with the pilot via noise-canceling headsets as they glimpse numerous waterfalls, Mount Wai‘ale‘ale, Waimea Canyon and the Nāpali Coast. The 90-minute Kaua‘i Refuge Eco-Tour includes the same spectacular views plus a 30-minute stop at a private botanical preserve where indigenous plants are being sustained.
Note: Due to decompression-related sickness, it is recommended that passengers wait 12-24 hours after scuba diving before flying; the amount of time is dependent on particular dive factors. Ask about possible policies regarding minimum wait time between scuba diving and flying; weight restrictions; weather, cancellation and refund policies; and the minimum and maximum number of passengers for flights. All small aircraft may encounter turbulence.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
