99% powered by the wind with an occasional 1% captain muscle. 45 ft traditional Hawaiian sailing canoe. Built by hand right here in Hawai'i and sailed throughout all of the islands. We started from humble beginnings about 18 years ago, and sought to design a business around a lifestyle that suited us best. A typical lifestyle to beautiful Hawai‘i for those of us that have grown up here and are in love with the ocean. What's a “typical” lifestyle here in Hawai'i, you ask? Well, from our eyes it may be different than what you think a typical Hawaiian lifestyle is.  Mai Tais with umbrellas, tikis and girls in coconuts? Not quite our thing. But we won't judge, for those of you who are into that. 🙂 Our style is a bit different. With us, we want to share with our guests a typical Hawaiian adventure. Experience what we experience, growing up on the water. A typical day in the life of a local watermen or woman on Kaua'i, both today and in ancient Hawai'i.

Approximately 80% of Kauai is uninhabited, remote and wild. A helicopter trip over Kauai reveals the incredible history, geology and beauty of the island.

Kauai, known as the “Garden Isle,” is the lushest and oldest of the Hawaiian Islands. This green and romantic isle has been the back-drop for countless Hollywood films.

Kauai is the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands. The island rose from the floor of the Pacific Ocean about 5.1 million years ago. Exposure to the elements over millions of years carved out vast valleys and sculpted ridgelines, making the island topography quite different from that on the youngest island of Hawaii, a.k.a. the Big Island. Some areas of Kauai have countless waterfalls from the abundant annual rainfall, while others are quite dry and desert-like.

Notable regions on Kauai include Mount Waialeale , Waimea Canyon, and the Na Pali Coastline. All our Kauai helicopter flights take you to these locations, as well as other regions on the North Shore and interior of Kauai (weather permitting). Our Refuge Eco Tour extends the experience by landing at a remote, private location owned by the Robinson family, missionary descendants who also own the island of Niihau.
