You get to see all the island attractions from above. As Kauai is such an spectacular place the trip is awesome. There are canyons and mountain ranges that are unaccessible from the ground and a plane trip is a chance to enjoy these unique views. The view from the Na Pali coast is breathtaking, unforgettable from above. The flight ride was smooth and thorough and the captain was friendly and professional. The check in process was smooth and the girl that handled it was nice and helpful. Overall a great experience. Money well spent.
