Kauai Helicopter ECO Adventure

Kauai Helicopter ECO Adventure

With over 70% of the island being inaccessible by land, Kauai is truly best seen from the sky. On this incredible helicopter tour of Kauai, you’ll experience views so beautiful they will take your breath away.

Explore the stunning Manawaiopuna Falls, also known as “Jurassic Park” falls, wedged in between the emerald green mountaintop of the Hanapepe Valley. Fly over the amazing views of the Olokele Canyon and majestic Waimea Canyon, often called the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” where you’ll catch sight of dozens of cascading waterfalls. Then, Kauai’s magical North Shore reveals the sculpted green valleys and 3,000-foot sea cliffs of the Na Pali Coast, the pristine turquoise-blue waters of Hanalei Bay and the Princeville Resort area.

Lastly, weather permitting, your pilot will fly you to Mt Wai’ale’ale, a dormant shield volcano with over 450 inches of rainfall each year, making it the second wettest places on earth. Here you’ll witness the most beautiful emerald green vegetation draped over the mist-covered mountain, with 3,000-foot cascading waterfalls filling each crevice—a truly awe-inspiring finish to your ECO Adventure over the Garden Isle.

Know your aircraft before you book any tour

The helicopter you fly in has a huge impact on the quality of your air-tour experience. Compare our state-of-the-art Eco-Stars and A-Stars with some other tour helicopters used in Hawaii.

Featuring state-of-the-art, Eco-Star Helicopters. Our aircraft incorporate all the latest in cutting-edge technologies, materials, systems and avionics, and offer incomparable passenger comfort and fantastic sweeping views.

The introduction of the incredible new Eco-Star is the dawn of a new era in helicopter touring. Since the late 1980s, the Airbus A-Star has been the tour helicopter of choice for professional tour operations worldwide. In Hawaii it is the industry standard—favored by all the top helicopter tour companies for its open cabin design that affords a 180º sweeping view for each passenger. This feature has been further enhanced in the revolutionary new Airbus Eco-Star—the first touring helicopter of the 21st Century.

Upgrade to Eco-Star Helicopter

  • Eco-Star’s 23% increase in cabin space over the A-Star affords significantly greater personal space for guests, along with improved visibility with over 65 square feet of glass for 180 degree unobstructed views.
  • Eco-Star features superior comfort; individual seats for every passenger afford the kind of shoulder room and personal space found in airline “First Class” seating.
  • Eco-Star features raised rear seating and wrap-around glass cockpit, for significantly improved visibility from every seat.
  • Eco-Star: First helicopter specifically designed for touring, utilizing the latest aircraft and avionics technologies.
  • Eco-Star: high-tech, enclosed “Fenestron,” or “Fan in Fin,” replaces A-Star’s conventional tail rotor. Fenestron is: Safer, Quieter and More efficient—using 25% less engine horsepower, which can now be utilized by the main rotorsystem.
  • Eco-Star’s state-of-the-art fuel control automatically optimizes main rotor speed for quietest operations and instant power response. Achieved with a “Full Authority Digital Electronic Control” (FADEC), utilizing  dual electronic channels with one electrical backup channel and a third hydro-mechanical backup control.
  • Eco-Star’s engine uses latest “Grown Crystal” technology for turbine blades—increasing power, heat tolerance and fuel efficiency. This, along with the FADEC, is the same technology used in state-of-the-art airline engines such those on the leading-edge Boeing 777.
  • Eco-Star features dual hydraulic systems.
  • Eco-Star cost is over $2 million – approximately 30% more than a new A-Star.

    Aloha! I’m Elizabeth L. At LiveYourAloha, I am responsible for writing about sightseeing tours and Hawaiian culture. For the last 12 years, I’ve been working as a tour guide in Hawaii. It’s been a great way to see the world and learn about new cultures. I love nature and the outdoors, and have even climbed two of the world’s highest peaks! Making connections and showing my visitors the incredible beauty of these beautiful islands is a passion of mine. When I’m not out giving tours, you’ll likely find me on an invigorating hike or enjoying local cuisine on the beach.
