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.

I wanted this experience to be the highlight of my trip and the team at Air Ventures Hawaii in Kauai did not disappoint. Booking online was simple and the check-in process with Pua 30mins before the flight was even simpler. Our pilot, Harry, briefed us on a few dos and don'ts while in the aircraft and then he had us...

Really enjoyed one hour scenic flight over beautiful island of Kauai. The pilot was very knowledgeable and showed us all the interesting places on the island. Always turned around several times so people on left/right could see and take pictures.

Truly enjoyed our tour of Kauai today! It was a perfect length of time and we were able to go right up to the crater. We saw things that we would never be able to see by car or hiking. Eric our pilot was very informative and entertaining. We have never done a flight like this before and it was... More

Excellent is too poor a word to describe the ride, the service and the staff. I would highly recommend the Waco ride to anyone.

We took a Na Pali coast catamaran ride, did the 8 mile hike from Ke'e beach, and then took the flight around the island. It enabled us to see where we are staying, everywhere we have been and a few places we still want to visit.

We booked with Air Ventures after getting canceled at Wings over Kauai due to equipment problems and couldn't be happier. They were easy to work with and were able to take our family of 4 on short notice. Stunning views of Napalii cost with pilot giving great recommendations for beach trips. Great way to get an overview of the Island... More

Our family of 5 took a flight today around Kauai - it was a more economical option than a helicopter tour. PROs: we got the plane to ourselves, it only seats 6 passengers, the weather was clear and mostly sunny, we got beautiful views of the island and our pilot Harry did turns on the major sites like Waimea Canyon...
