Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to plan a mini getaway, and Las Vegas is a popular destination to visit. The city itself has many activities to offer and the Grand Canyon is just a short distance away when you fly with Maverick Helicopters.
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.”
