Owner description: Air Ventures invites you to experience a unique and comfortable airplane tour of some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see. Sit back and relax while your professional pilot and our specially designed, brand new Airvan, gently escort you to breathtaking vantage points around the diversely intriguing Island of Kauai. View the lush valleys and jagged cliffs of the NaPali Coast, the picturesque Waimea Canyon, cascading waterfalls and miles of Kauai's scenic beaches. Air Ventures now offer Waco Bi-Plane tours. THE ONLY OPEN COCKPIT BI-PLANE RIDE ON KAUAI! The YMF-5 is specifically designed to carry a pilot and two passengers. While the pilot operates the controls from the rear, our passengers sit side-by-side in the comfortable OPEN cockpit.

We took a private 60-minute tour around the Island this past week and it was truly the highlight of our entire trip. I booked with Air Ventures because we could do a private tour and it was a bit less expensive than other companies. We left a little bit after 830am when our flight was, but spent over 60 minutes...

I took the air van tour and was very impressed. The price was lower than the helicopter tours (look out for coupons at your hotel for an even better deal) and did not induce air sickness for me! I have taken a helicopter tour before and though they can get lower to the ground for some neat views, I was... More

We made a last minute descision to do this and the price was right! Called at 8am and flying by 10am, they picked us up and dropped us off at the ABC store with no problems. Brian was our pilot and was extremely thorough and knowledgeable throughout the tour. Definitely want to go back and experience Kauai again based on... More

We had a flight that experienced an extreme weather condition and Air Ventures went out of their way to ensure we had the full experience. They booked us for free the next day. Brian, our pilot was amazingly knowledgeable. Customer service is excellent. We saw so many awesomely beautiful sights. Thank you Air Adventures!!! Mahalo.

We traveled on the biplane tour on December 11 inquiry. The trip was simply outstanding. They company and all its personnel were great to deal with and the views from the biplane were phenomenal.

This was something we wanted to do the entire trip and searched long and hard for the right one. After doing our research, we decided on Air Ventures and we were not disappointed!! Our pilot Eric was very knowledgable about the island and the tour was well over an hour. Compared to other tours prices, this one was comparable but... More

We really enjoyed the flight around the Island. We would never have benbeen able to so the island like we did and the weather was perfect. Brian was very informative and fun to be with. I had forgotten how close the quarters are in the single props. I would love to stay up for a long time, so peaceful and... More

The only thing we regret about taking this tour is not taking this tour on our first day in Kauai. Our pilot/guide Brian gave an outstanding tour full of information only a native would have insight into. We feel like if we would've taken this tour early on in our stay in Kauai we could have seen exactly the spots... More

We did the private tour it was amazing but the plane seemed very old and junky. Pilot was knowledgeable and friendly with his guided detailed tour but every time the wind blew we felt the plane was going to crash. They need a new plane!

This flight was amazing and covered all the topics we were interested in. We saw so many beautiful places. Before boarding, everyone had a nice fruit snack . Our pilot, Eric, I think that was it, did a great job narrating and answering questions. I loved that it was pretty quiet, helicopters are really noisy. This was a plane and... More
