Helicopter Tour of Kauai

We were excited to enjoy another ride in a helicopter as well as see the wide range of sights on Kauai.  We decided to take our tour on a Bell 500s helicopter that is flown with its doors off.

Of course I geeked out studying the instrumentation panel.

As we took off from the airport, we had a spectacular view.

The views of the valleys were spectacular.  Pictures do not do them justice.

In a helicopter we were able to see canyons that would be impossible to access any other way.

Other sights could be accessed, but only by boat in special circumstances.

No view of the garden isle would be complete without views of the many waterfalls.
