We thoroughly enjoyed flying with Bruce over the island of Kauai during our vacation. He was a wonderful guide and a great pilot! We got a lot of beautiful pictures and learned much about the island! We highly recommend them!!

We took this tour while in Kauai, and it was one of the best things we have EVER done! The views are breathtaking and you feel like you are floating while seeing everything around the island. You are able to see everything, big windows and the ride was 100% comfortable. We took our 2 year old daughter on the tour,... More

We had an amazing flight with Bruce in the 2 seater Cessna. The views were spectacular, and It was much smoother and more scenic than I could have imagined. Not only was Bruce a great pilot, he was an excellent tour guide. My husband loved sitting in the front seat and doing the pre flight check ! what an experience.... More

A truly unforgettable trip. The small plane was a much smoother ride than I had expected. Beautiful views over the Waimea canyon, Na Pali coast and across the whole of the island.

This was one of the most fantastic experiences ever. The whole process from booking, paying, reminders, actual flight to sending us our edited video of the flight, was very efficient. We've previously done helicopter tours but this was the first time in a small plane, and I would say it was better - less noisy and more space to move... More

What a fantastic experience. Bruce is a great pilot while being very informative and funny. We took the flight on the first full day of our stay on Kauai and used it to plan where to visit by car, although most of the views are only visible by air, so make the most of them. We now have an hour... More

And Wings Over Kaua'i will take you on a revealing bird's eye view to all of the island's glory! It was a thrilling experience! Our pilot was Josh, he was very friendly and informative, very relax and easy going too. Take-off and landing on this small plane is very smooth, if you were to close your eyes you wouldn't be...

This was the best experience we had during on stay on Kauai in August 2014! We had booked this flight many months in advance as this was high on our 'to do' list. It turned out that we were booked on the day that hurricane Iselle was to hit the island. As soon as I heard the timing of the... More

After reading reviews and safety records of the helicopter tours, my husband and I decided to take a plane tour with the Wings Over Kauai, and we were thrilled. We took a private tour with Bruce on the Cessna and he did a great job checking in with us throughout the trip and pointing out many of the sights. There... More

Captain Bruce, a long time resident of Kauai, was most knowledgeable and entertaining. He had fascinating stories about places that otherwise would have just been another beautiful sight. Speaking of beautiful sights, you see them all. I took over 200 great photos, many of them of places you can't see any other way than from the air. My wife's concerns... More
