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.</br></br>

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. </br></br>

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.</br></br>

Air Ventures Hawaii also offers you the ride of a lifetime in our 60-minute air tour in Kauai's <b>only open cockpit bi-plane<b>, 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.

Fantastic experience!! This was a highlight of our trip! Perfect for our whole family! The staff was kind and so helpful with getting my Pop in and out of the plane.

The Air Ventures plane flight was the absolutely best that we have ever taken. We were thrilled by the sheer beauty offered by this flying kite, as it allowed us to take wonderful pictures at only 75 miles an hour. Our pilot was masterful as he took us into the many canyons of Kauai. This allowed us to get the... More

Thanks pilot Kevin for a great experience. It's such a shame that there was so much cloud and rain yesterday. Perfect along the south coast, but next sector was a white out. The rainbows were nice. We had to drop some sights. And then another plane came along side us for some air to air photos for their Web site... More

Been to Kauai several times and have never seen the island like this. We visited with our family and a couple of friends and decided to take the flight vs taking a helicopter, SURE GLAD WE DID!

My husband wanted to fly in this plane. I kind of got drafted into doing it, because you need 2 people (And the pilot of course). We really enjoyed the flight. The weather was perfect, we got to see the island up close. Eric and the entire staff members were awesome.

This was our second trip with Kevin in the four seater Cessna. The info that he gave as we flew was wonderful. Great overview of Kauai for our 87yr age mom.
