    Lihue Airport
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    Two air tours in one! Enjoy views of the Garden Island of Kauai's Menehune Fish Pond, the Eucalyptus Tunnel of Trees, Waita Reservoir (the largest reservoir on Kauai), Captain Cook’s Landing in Waimea Town, the breathtaking Waimea Canyon, the majestic Napali Coastline, Lumahai Beach (were the movie South Pacific was filmed), Hanalei Valley, cascading waterfalls, Kilauea Lighthouse (the largest Frigate bird sanctuary) and miles of beautiful coastline and beaches. Stretching only some 18 miles long and about six miles wide, the arid island is located approximately 17 miles off the west coast of Kaua’i. What makes Ni‘ihau so mystifying is that life here has remained mostly frozen in time. Since it was purchased for $10,000 by the Sinclair family for ranching purposes in 1864, not much has changed. There are no paved roads, no commercial buildings, no hospitals, and few modern-day comforts. A small population of less than 200 live in a tiny village called Pu‘uwai on the westside of the island and still communicate in the native tongue. Hunting and gathering are how sustenance is accrued and monetary work is nearly nonexistent except for a few jobs and artisan trades like selling Ni’ihau Jewelery–treasures made exclusively from shells plucked from the island’s pristine beaches.

We loved our island flight over Kauai, The pilot was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about the diverse Island landscape. They are a newer company on Kauai but the staff has extensive prior experience working with other tour providers. One of the owners currently flies for Delta. I must admit that I was a bit apprehensive about flying in such a small plane and I appreciated their obvious attention to detail with regard to safety as well as the fact that their planes are newer than most if not all of their competitors. That they operate a twin engine instead of single engine plane also afforded me a lot more peace of mind. I highly recommend taking at least one tour with Ali’i Kauai Air tours as it provides a broader context for hiking, snorkeling and other activities on the ground.

We did their Kaua'i & Ni'ihau Air Tour

One of the best ways to get an introduction to the entire island and the forbidden island also!

Our pilot was very knowledgeable and was able to customize our experience to our taste, where he made loops or flew around places we want him to!

You dont get this same private experience on a helicopter crammed with 5 other people! definitely do this instead at a fraction of the price!!
