Description: Experience a 60 minute air tour of some of the most spectacularly...
Experience a 60 minute air tour of some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery you will ever see. Air Ventures Hawaii offers 3 unique options for flight travel around the beautiful island of Kauai.

Board our 6 passenger G-8 Airvan for 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.

There are many helicopter and plane tours you can take on Kauai. We stumbled upon this one and it was fantastic. They picked us (6) up near the cruise ship and we took a 1 - 1.5 hour tour of the island. The Waimea canyon and Napali coast were the highlights of our trip to Hawaii. Our pilot was very... More

We went on the plane tour while on our Honeymoon. It was a fantastic way to see the Kauai landscapes. Our pilot was wonderful and enjoyable. The entire staff was great. Thanks.

Pilot was outstanding and did an excellent job of narrating. It was such an awesome view and tour of Kauai. It was far better than the helicopter tour.

The views are simply amazing. Our pilot Paul was great about telling us what we were looking at; we learned a lot about the island while seeing breathtaking views of waterfalls, the canyon, the Na Pali coast... He would fly by and then circle around so that the other side of the plane could get a first hand look. There... More

We booked the airvan for our family of 5 after reading a recommendation on CruiseCritic. The booking was quick and easy online and Pua was wonderful to interact with. They scheduled a shuttle pickup for us near our ship and after a smooth checkin process we were up in the air with pilot Paul. The view is amazing and the... More

We booked a flight with their small Cesna plane and experieced an exceptional tour allover Kauai. Luckily, we had an early morning flight, not a single cloud allowing us to see everything. Thanks to the whole team and especially our pilot Eric who did an amazing job and a butter smooth landing :).

Incredible views and very entertaining pilot. Small plane gave intimate feel to flight. Absolutely stunning tour. Plus for only $25 we attached our go pro to the wing of the plane for additional incredible footage.

I'm happy I have a wonderful adventurous wife who spotted the Air//Venture sign and we signed up. Brian was supremely knowledgeable of the Island and made our trip a great learning experience besides a treat for the senses. I couldn't convince him to do a barrel roll.

After a last minute decision and (fortunate for us) a cancellation my husband, brother in law and I were booked with Air Ventures. Pua was sweet and efficient on the phone and sent Jill right after us for pick up. We were pleasantly surprised upon learning Ray, the owner (along with his sweet wife Jill) would be flying us. He...
