50 Minute Doors-Off Tour
This Doors-Off Adventure will take you over Kauai’s most lush and scenic destination on the island! Sites include Bali Ha’i, Hanalei Bay, Hanapepe (Jurassic Falls), Kipu Kai, Na Pali Coast, Waialeale Crater (The Weeping Wall) Wailua Falls, and Waimea Canyon.
On this Doors-Off experience you’ll see Bali Hai, also known as the Makana Mountain, which starts at the beginning of the Na Pali Coast on the north shore of Kauai. Enjoy soaring over Manawaiopuna Falls, one of the Garden Isle’s most famous waterfalls and best known from the opening of the 1993 blockbuster film, Jurassic Park. Watch from above as the water rushes over a 380-foot tall cliff surrounded by walls of deep green lush flora located within Hanapepe Valley on the west side of the island. This is truly a site few can say they have seen while on Kauai.
Continue on over to Hanalei Bay which covers nearly two miles of beach and is backed by 4000 ft tall emerald mountains. Hihimanu is on the east, Namolokama is in the middle with its square top, and the triangular shaped Mamalahoa is to the west. These sites are often cloaked with a mist of clouds as the Mt. Waialeale ridge is home to dozens of cascading waterfalls.
The name Waialeale, meaning “rippling water or overflowing” receives over 400 inches of rain per year and is known to be one of the wettest spots on earth. You’ll be surrounded by enchanting waterfalls and lush green walls of fauna as you witness Waialeale Crater, also known as Blue Hole & The Weeping Wall. From above you will see it all and find yourself lost in the beauty and mystery of Kauai’s enchanting lure.
Other sites like the Wailua Falls and Waimea Canyon are also famous aerial sites on the Doors-Off Adventure Tour.

Waialeale Crater, also known as Blue Hole & The Weeping Wall, are a hiker’s dream but only the most experienced hikers are able to view these wonders.

The name Waialeale, meaning “rippling water or overflowing” receives over 600 inches of rain per year and is known to be one of the wettest spots on earth.

Lastly, you’ll venture up into the beautiful 80+ foot Wailua Falls with two side-by-side falls. Famous for its ever-present rainbow that is almost always visible thanks to the spray from the falls.
