Enjoy shuttle pickup from your cruise line in port at Nawiliwili Harbor one hour prior to your flight time to begin your Kauai shore excursion. The shuttle ride is 10 minutes to Lihue Airport. Before taking flight, receive a short safety briefing, and then you’ll be ready for your 45- to 55-minute scenic flight over the island.
After lift off, you will see Hanapepe Valley, home to Manawaiopuna Falls, also known as Jurassic Park Falls. Then look down on beautiful Olokele Canyon and jaw-dropping Waimea Canyon, the famed 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific,' where many waterfalls reside.
Continue over the National Tropical Botanical Garden and Bali Hai followed by the jagged cliffs of the Na Pali Coast and the gorgeous blue waters of Hanalei Bay. Weather dependent, visit Mt. Waialeale, one of the wettest places on the planet. This emerald peak hosts some of Hawaii's greatest waterfalls, such as the 800-foot (245-meter) Waipo’o Falls, which sends rushing streams into the island’s rivers: the Hanapepe, Waimea, Wailua, and Makaweli.
After landing, the shuttle will be ready to take you back to port.
Please note: the exact route and course you take depends on the weather.
