Kauai is, without a doubt, paradise on earth. Growing up on this island had only given me a singular perspective of the beauty I was surrounded by. Now as Professional Photographer I have had the opportunity to work with some pretty awesome companies, like Wings Over Kauai and Captain Andy’s, who have given me the chance to see my beautiful home from some pretty cool perspectives. So without further ado, let me take you on a tour of my home from the AIR, LAND, and SEA.
The Napali Coast is one of the most spectacular views Kauai has to offer. Rising to heights of 4000 feet, it doesn’t seem to matter from which angle you view this beautiful coastline, there is something awe-inspiring about its majestic immensity. It is no wonder it is known for being “Shangri-La” or “Heaven on Earth.”
Back on dry land, I got the opportunity to bump into some of the locals of Kauai! These two crazies were giving me a heart attack as they jumped around the cliffs! Such a sight to see, especially as the fog rolled in over the Na’Pali.
If you’re lucky, you may get a chance to see some of the world’s most beautiful sea creatures just off the shores of Kauai. You may see turtles, whales or even see a Humuhumunukunukuapua’a (Hawaii State Fish).
Although you can make the track to Waipo’o Falls from the ground, there is nothing that compares to the views from the sky of this 800 foot cascading waterfall surrounded by rainbows. I couldn’t believe the number of rainbows I could see from the very Wings Over Kauai ! Such an amazing opportunity, and such an unbelievable experience.
After hiking for a bit, we made sure to stop and take a quick dip in one of the many waterfalls along the island’s Na’Pali Cliffs. I would have to say that this is probably one of the only times you feel cold in Kauai, Hawaii.
Crazy thing about the islands is every time you go back, you always have a new story to tell of a new adventure you went on. You will never run out of fun things to do, or places to hideaway and just zen out! I have only mentioned a few of the unbelievable sights Kauai has to offer, and now I can’t wait to get back home again!
