The flight portion of this tour is identical to the Deluxe Waterfall Safari and includes landing at a Kauai Wildlife Refuge.
Landing at Robinson Refuge / Safari Helicopters
The Kauai Wildlife Refuge is located within the Robinson Ranch on property exclusively owned by environmentalist Keith Robinson who is dedicated to the preservation of native Hawaiian plants endemic to the Islands. This site over looks the Olokele Canyon owned by the Robinson Family and is totally inaccessible to the public otherwise.

You will be able to view the vastness of this particular canyon and the wonders of possible rainbows and waterfalls in the distance. The canyon is sometimes called the East Fork of the Waimea Canyon and extends from Waimea to the back west side of Mt. Waialeale Crater. There are no public roads or overlooks by land to view this spectacular site. A number of films were produced at this location including a scene from the movie Jurassic Park.
The pilot will discuss the Robinson Family history (who have preserved the native Hawaiians' way of life on Niihau the "Forbidden Island") and the plans to develop the property into a wildlife preserve for native Hawaiian plants endemic to the Islands. If you are lucky, Mr. Keith Robinson may be on site to discuss his botanical plans.
Note: Safari is the only legally authorized company to provide a remote landing eco-tour on the island of Kauai. Any other company that does remote landing on a regular basis is doing so illegally.
