Kauai, Hawaii HD tour – “Shards from Heaven” by helicopter, raft, and kayak

Explore beautiful Kauai, Hawaii in HD by helicopter, ocean raft, and kayak. NEW! See my video on Kyoto, JAPAN in HD! www.youtube.com Filmed on the island of Kauai over 9 days. This video gives a brief tour of the island and its adventures and sights. I’d imagine it’d be interesting for people who want a quick overview of what Kauai is like. Photographs here www.flickrwire.com Scenes include the Napali Coast, the Kalalau trail, Hanakapi’ai Falls, the Waiahuakua sea cave, the open ceiling cave, Ho’olulu Sea Cave, the Wailua River, the Secret Waterfall, and Mount Waialeale crater (the wettest place on earth). For the shots, we went kayaking, boating on the Napali Coast for sea caves, and took a helicopter ride into the Waialaelae crater. It’s estimated as much as 75% of Kauai is inaccessible due to forests. Thanks to Napali Riders for the boat, Mauna Loa helicopters, and Wailua Kayak and Canoe. Filmed by Patrick Shyu, starring Henrick Shyu. Music by Garnet Crow. Recorded on a Canon S95, stabilized with Mercalli v2, edited in Premiere.
