Exclusive Landing at the Falls

The only way you can get there and see it from the ground is via Island Helicopters which has the exclusive right to land there. No other helicopter company can land there.

You can only see these waterfalls by air. I did it using Jack Harter helicopter with the doors off. I think there is one air helicopter which has permission to still land.

My 14 year old and I experienced this and it was just like being in the movies. What a great beautiful experience. You have to see this before you leave! Triple Forks Hunting

5 miles off of highway 50. You can drive directly to the falls and park right there. Great photo op.

We took a fly-over tour our first day on The island, and this was a much-anticipated sight! Next time we will try to book a tour that actually lands at the falls, but seeing it from the air was absolutely stunning and well worth it!

We took a helicopter tour that landed nearby so we could hike to the falls. Beautiful water fall! Great day! Very romantic but also great adventure for the teens!

This was a tour well worth the money. My husband and I REALLY wanted to go on the tour but struggled with the cost. We are both really glad we went. Kauai from the air is spectacular. Our pilot was excellent and made us feel safe and comfortable for the entire tour.

This helicopter ride was one of the best highlights of our trip to Hawaii! Worth the time and money to take this ride with this company. And our pilot, Warren was the best!

Without a helicopter, the closest view we found of this waterfall is from a turnout north of the Waimea Lookout.

Did this with our grandson. Forget flying to the Falls, take Island Helicopter which will land at the Falls like in the movie, although the original helo pad was destroyed in the storm during/aftrer the shooting, you can see the reamins. Land and walk around. It is worth the extra $50 bucks!
