Description: Air Ventures invites you to experience a unique and comfortable airplane...
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 provide each passenger with a nostalgic cloth helmet and goggles, along with a modern headset that provides continuous two-way communications with the pilot.

We are a family with 4 children ages 12 to 19 and spent a week on Kauai. We really wanted to do an air tour with our kids but the cost of a helicopter flight would have been well over $1,000.00. We saw a brief introduction to Air Ventures and it seemed interesting so we decided to look into it... More

Can't say that I thoroughly enjoyed the flight (through no fault of Air Adventures though)! I had a bit of queasiness, not a lot but just enough to make things less enjoyable. I think that sitting on the left side behind the pilot was a bad seat for viewing as it seemed everything of interest was on the right side... More

The island is beautiful and this is the only way that anyone can see it all. It was a little bumpy because it was quite windy but otherwise it was wonderful. No rain and lots of sun. I think this is a great experience early on our visit because we now know where we want to visit sometime during our... More

My wife and I have wanted to visit Hawai'i for a long time, but weren't able to until recently, when I started working in Honolulu. Everyone I work with heaps accolades and superlatives on just about everything - rightfully so! After a few weeks of living in Waikiki, we finally got a chance to see another island, and came to...

There is nothing to compare seeing Kauai by Air! The trip was smooth due to the good piloting of Harry. My friend and I took many pictures! She was a bit afraid at first but after we took off she was so happy that I had convinced her to go. The scenery was unbelievably beautiful!

After2 other tries (due to bad weather) we finally were able to take the most exciting tour of Kauai. We simply glided over the most breathtaking scenery imaginable. The flight was so smooth it felt as though we were suspended in mid air. The pilot and the rest of the staff were awesome they made the experience unforgetable. Colin

Seeing Kauai from the sky is spectacular. The mountains are breath taking. there is no other way you could appreciate its beauty so completely. Air Ventures was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable at a fair price. Our pilot and guide was friendly and knowledgeable. All in all it was a great attraction.

Great flight with a good, knowlegeble pilot, very smooth with very little bumps. I would advise anyone who is going on a small airplane to not eat anything in the morning, or several hours before flying as the passenger in the front seat found out when he got airsick, and that was a relatively smooth flight.
