Doors off helicopter tour

The only way to see Kauai

Majority of the island remains inaccessible by land.  If I remember correctly, 90% of the island is inaccessible.  To much of the rain forest and central parts of the island, there is little or no road access.  Another reason for the inaccessibility is that a lot of the island remains privately owned and is therefore closed to the public.  We did a helicopter tour to capture these spectacular and breathtaking views.

“Doors Off” allowed for unobstructed photography. The clouds in our toes wasn’t bad either. …Yeah my love can rock a Manbun.

Breathtaking start. It’s clear why Kauai is used for the filming of so many movings. Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, The Descendants, Six Days Seven Nights, King Kong… and the list goes on.

Napali Coast. The fog seen along the coast is actually salt in the air.  I can still smell it.

Napali Coast. The brown water is from the recent rain. Iron in the rocks gives a reddish brown color and runs down the rock formation into the ocean.

It was actually to our benefit that the island underwent tropical storms in the early days of our trip.  If you look carefully at most of the pictures, you can see multiple waterfalls that were remnants of the recent rains.

Napali Coast- Cathedral Rock Formations.  We heard that there is a spot on a beach where couples can get married under the Cathedral Rocks.  How romantic!?

Waimea Canyon State Park. It was said that early explorers named it Waimea Canyon State Park because the canyon reminded them of the Grand Canyon.

Mount Waiʻaleʻale (the second highest peak in HI) rains 350 days a year (average). There are so many waterfalls, that it is known as the Wall of Tears.

Are you singing the Jurassic Park theme song yet? Napali Coast is where it was filmed.

This waterfall is usually a trickle.

One of the biggest waterfalls on the island of Kauai. Boys jump off the top of the waterfall as a testament of their manhood when coming of age. Of course it is not usually this robust.

Light rain throughout the tour made flying through clouds extra fun. We could actually feel the rainclouds moving through our toes.

Celebrities live in this area. We were told Bette Midler, Julia Roberts, and others own homes on this beach.

By far, the most breathtaking beaches I’ve seen.
