5 Reasons You Should Book a Kauai Helicopter Tour

From the Na Pali coast to the vast Waimea Canyon, the terrain of Kauai is not easy to traverse from the ground. “The Garden Isle” also has hidden waterfalls to discover, deep canyons to explore, and clandestine coastlines to soak in. With most of Kauai’s striking geographic marvels inaccessible by foot or road, helicopter tours provide the best way to take in all the resplendent beauty the island has to offer.

Are you ready to take a helicopter tour over Kauai?

The Maverick Helicopter tour, Kauai Explorer, features two of Kauai’s most recognized natural landmarks: the Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon. You’ll see the magnitude of the coastline as 17-miles stretch out beneath you dotted with emerald-hued cliffs that tower above the Pacific Ocean. Fly over Waimea Canyon, dubbed “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” for its desert landscape and vibrant colors. More spectacular shorelines await as you fly toward the Bali Hai Cliffs along the North Shore. Travel continues past Mount Waialeale, one of the wettest spots on Earth. Get a bird’s-eye-view of Jurassic Falls and conclude your flight over the Hanapepe Valley, famous for its scenes in the film, “Jurassic Park.” This is a memorable air adventure that Maverick Helicopters is proud to offer.

5 Reasons To Book A Kauai Helicopter Tour

1. The Best Views of the Na Pali Coast

The Na Pali Coast is an iconic, mountainous shoreline spanning Kauai’s North Shore. It is a very special and sacred place defined by its natural beauty. There are no roads that lead to this part of Kauai making it inaccessible to vehicles. Exploring this area by air lets you enjoy the entire stretch of the coastline from the blue ocean to the dramatic cliffs and hidden valleys. Beautiful beaches and waterfalls that flow down to the lush valley floor are also revealed to you as you fly along the coast.

2. View Inaccessible Waterfalls Up Close

Hawaii is known for beautiful waterfalls, many of which are nestled deep within the island of Kauai. However, many of these waterfalls are on private land making them inaccessible or restricted by road or foot. Some of the most beautiful of these waterfalls are natural gems hidden behind dense foliage. By taking a helicopter tour over Kauai you’ll be able to see these amazing waterfalls up close.

3. Explore Waimea Canyon

Dubbed “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific” this geological wonder stretches over 14 miles long and is 3,600 feet deep. It can be viewed from the ground but to see it by air brings the grandeur of it into full scale. When you fly with Maverick Helicopters our pilots will take you over Waimea Canyon and deep inside the ravine for a close look at the dramatic red and green landscape.

4. See “The Weeping Wall”

Located near the center of Hawaii’s lush island of Kauai,”The Weeping Wall” is made up of a misty oasis of multiple waterfalls that cascade down the different grooves of Mount Waialeale – said to be one the wettest spots on Earth. An easy way to see these beautiful falls is by helicopter where you can get up close and personal with the majestic “weeping walls.”

5. Hear Interesting Facts From Our Experienced Pilots

As you enjoy the majesty of Kauai take a short trip through history as our experienced pilots regale you with fascinating facts. Our pilots know the islands well and they’ll be able to relay interesting stories about hidden waterfalls, various movie locations, and even point out the Nounou Mountain range known as the Sleeping Giant. It’s like having a pilot and a tour guide wrapped up in one!

Best Time to Book a Grand Canyon Sightseeing Tour

The Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, is a popular destination for sightseeing. Because of the expanse of the canyon, however, it’s impossible to soak in its greatness on foot alone. That’s why a helicopter tour with Maverick Helicopters is the perfect way to experience the many wonderful sights that the Grand Canyon has to offer.

When planning your journey it’s important to know the factors that can affect your Grand Canyon sightseeing tour before you book. This will help you have the best possible experience during your trip and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Seasons/Weather

When deciding what time of year to book your sightseeing tour the seasonal weather should be taken into consideration. Each season presents a different experience in the Grand Canyon and each rim will embrace the weather in its own way.

Spring through early summer are the most popular times for helicopter tours because of the milder temperatures. The summer months are also the busiest times of the year for flights and days at the West Rim can be hot, with temperatures exceeding 100°F. Morning flights out to the West Rim are often cooler and a better option when booking a Grand Canyon tour during the summer. The South Rim, home of the Grand Canyon National Park, is higher in elevation than the West Rim. Sitting at 6,000 feet above sea level this high elevation makes temperatures cooler at the south and would be the preferred location for those sensitive to the summer heat.

Fall can be a good choice for a tour at either rim because there are less crowds and the weather is favorable.

Winters at the West Rim are mild compared to the South Rim, although dressing in layers is still recommended. Because the South Rim is cooler at the higher elevation, temperatures can drop very low during the winter and it’s even possible to get snow. Booking a flight later in the day during the winter months will let you enjoy the outdoor surroundings.

Time of day 

As mentioned, the best time of day to book a sightseeing tour will depend on the time of year, weather, and personal preference. Maverick Helicopters offers a wide variety of flight times and tours throughout the day so you can choose the time that works best for you. Once you know which tour you’d like to take it is recommended that you make your reservation well in advance of your desired departure date.

Deals

Which Rim

Maverick Helicopters has exciting tours to both the West and South Rims. The West Rim is home to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hualapai Ranch, and Guano Point with landing options on the floor of the canyon. The South Rim is primarily known for its breathtaking scenic beauty inside Grand Canyon National Park. There is no landing allowed at the South Rim, instead the helicopter will fly over Kaibab National Forest and through spectacular Dragon Corridor, the canyon’s widest and deepest section. The rim you choose will depend on the type of experience you want. Our reservations specialists can provide detailed information on our tours to help you decide the best choice for your sightseeing tour of the Grand Canyon. Call us at 1-888-261-4414 or 702-261-0007 today!

No matter which of the rims you decide to see, or during which season you’ll be traveling, Maverick is there to provide an exciting sightseeing experience.
