Air, Land, and Fern Grotto
The Big Kahuna Air & Land Tour is our one hour Big Kahuna entire island airplane tour followed by a Wailua River boat cruise and tour of the Fern Grotto. It's well known that the remote and rugged beauty of Kauai is best appreciated from above – aboard a scenic flightseeing tour. Many of the Garden Island's most dramatic and beautiful areas are totally inaccessible by car so to truly see the island you have to get off (or above) the beaten path. You’ll gaze out at the cathedral-like spires of the Napali Coastline; soar above Hanalei Bay’s white crescent sand beach and sapphire blue waters; marvel at the steep red valley walls of Waimea Canyon and the river that meanders through it; and gain an albatross’s view of the waterfall saturated walls of Mt. Waialeale.
