Air Ventures Hawaii invites you to experience our 60 minute air tour of some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery you will ever see. Sit back and relax in our 6 passenger G-8 Airvan, while your professional pilot shows you breathtaking views of our diversely landscaped Island of Kauaii. During your 60 minute flight you will view, from your large bubble window, the lush valleys, picturesque Waimea Canyon, cascading waterfalls, miles of Kauai's scenic beaches, as well as the magnificent Kalalau cathedrals of the NaPali Coast. For a more private air tour we offer a Cessna 182 affording the same awe inspiring views, but with only two or three passengers per flight on your 60 minute tour. Air Ventures Hawaii also offers you the RIDE OF A LIFETIME in our 60 minute air tour in Kauai's ONLY OPEN COCKPIT BI-PLANE, our YMF-5 Classic Aircraft. While the pilot operates the controls from the rear, our passengers sit side-by-side in the comfortable OPEN cockpit. Each passenger has the option of wearing a nostalgic cloth helmet and goggles, together with a modern headset providing continuous two-way communication with the pilot. Whichever tour you choose, it will be the highlight of your vacation. We recommend you book early in your stay and we know YOU"RE GOING TO LOVE IT!

We took the Bi-Plane tour on May 24 and could not recommend it more. The staff was all great, and since I am a Flight Instructor in California I can say our pilot Harry was outstanding. Informative, safe, and very knowledgeable of his plane and the the tour. Great commentary during the flight about all that you would never see... More

My family of five went on a week's vacation to Hawaii, and we toured the islands on the Pride of America cruise ship. We took a plane tour of Kauai with Air Ventures, and it was one of the highlights of our whole trip. The staff were so friendly, and the pilot did a great job of showing us the... More

The company was awesome in helping us with the Air and Sea Combo. Air Venture was great the weather wasn't the best and they had to postponed which I would rather do then go up and fly and see nothing. I really appreciated that they wanted the best experience possible versus just making money.

Most of the Garden Isle is inaccessible by road. The roads (almost) circumnavigate the island, but you cannot drive to see the NaPali Coast. You either go by air or by boat. Air Ventures is one of the cool ways to see the inaccessible. Much, much less expensive than helicopter equivalents, this is a great tour.I was the alleged co-pilot... More

We had such a phenomenal time with our open cockpit biplane your with Harry! The island is gorgeous from the plane and nothing beats the experience of being in a small plane, let alone having an open cockpit. Harry made us feel super safe and comfortable and have great information about the island. We did this to start the trip... More

With many parts of Kauai inaccessible by car, this was a great way to see the island. Captain Paul made the experience fun and entertaining by pointing out movie sites, celebrity houses, and other landmarks. The Napali coast, Waimea Canyon and waterfalls were magnificent!

Booked the flight and luau package on the phone (super easy to book), and got a reminder email and phone call the day before the flight. Location is easy to find (right after LIH main terminal) with ample parking. Checked in with Liz (who I booked with on phone), and she was just as pleasant and funny in person during... More
