The island of Kauai offers an amazing number of attractions that can only be seen from a helicopter. Much of Kauai’s north shore is so inaccessible that no road leads there. Hop on a helicopter or sea plane and discover the spectacular Na Pali Coast, also known as the "jewel of Kauai." Then continue on to Waimea Canyon and Mount Waialeale to enjoy the sights of towering waterfalls and lush valleys.

Enjoy a Kauai sunset sail or cruise along the spectacular Na Pali Coast or the island's south shore. Either one of these destinations offers fantastic photo opportunities. The Na Pali Coast on Kauai's north shore is completely undeveloped. Since no road leads here, the only way to see the stunning sea cliffs and isolated beaches is via helicopter or boat.

Snorkeling is one of the most popular things to do on Kauai. The island’s crystal clear waters and spectacular coral reef is a snorkeler’s dream. Some of the best snorkeling locations are along the remote Na Pali Coast. No road leads here, so a boat cruise along the Na Pali Coast is on the to-do-list of many visitors to the island. The unspoiled reefs along this coastline are home to a large variety of tropical fish, green sea turtles and other marine life.

Kauai's Na Pali Coast is truly a must-see on your Kauai vacation. Come aboard a catamaran and combine sightseeing with a delicious dinner while the sun sets on the horizon. Or alternatively, go snorkeling first and then enjoy a dinner cruise.
