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. Whichever tour you choose, it will be the highlight of your vacation. Visit our website for full details and availability on all of our flight options, and be sure to book early to secure your spot for a one-of-a-kind experience. We know you're going to love it!

Wow - what an experience! I had the opportunity to take two separate flights - one in their Cessna and one in their incredible cherry red biplane (the only one on the island). On both trips to Air Ventures, I was greeted warmly by the staff and owner, who really goes above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your... More

This was the most breathtaking scenery that I've ever seen. I was travelling solo and they were able to book me online which was great since wings over kauai has a policy not to book singles until day before if there is room! Great bonus to not have to wait last minute to see if I would get a seat.... More

Our trip around the island of Kauai was a fantastic end to our week on the island! We saw all the places (Waimea Canyon, Wailua Falls, the Na Pali coastline, Poipu and many other beaches, etc.) we had visited during the week as well as many others that are only accessible by air. Our guide, Brian, was informative, interesting and... More

Great views of the island with a very knowledgeable pilot. My hubby and I are 6'1" and 6'0", respectively so sitting in the back of the plane was a bit cramped for the one hour flight but we were able to angle a little into the aisle. The flight does get a little bumpy at times and 5 of the... More

This plane ride was excellent. Our pilot was very knowledgable on landmarks, places to see, and Hawaiian history. We got to see the entire island. If you are traveling to Kauai, you need to book with Air Ventures, you won't regret it.

After our reservation with another private air plane service was cancelled an hour before, air ventures was able to get us in that same morning. And boy am I glad that happened! They were amazing.

Our pilot was excellent in his enthusiasm for the island as a native and he got us close to the vistas we wanted to see without frightening the passengers.
