Owner description: 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.

“Great plane tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Nice overview of the island. Very smooth 55 min. ride even with looming clouds and wind.
Good pilot, friendly, with a lots of comments. We were 6 people from the same family, it felt like a
private plane.

“A truly great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were not going to do this tour but that would have been the biggest mistake of our adventure on the island. the tour was the best part of our 2 week stay. We enjoyed the running commentary by the pilot and the grand vista. the seating was perfect, everyone had the best seat and the best view of what was to be seen. as we talk about what was the best part of our holiday, the first thing that is brought up is the ride on the plane with your pilot.

“Best way to see Kauai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Had such an amazing time with Air Ventures Hawaii! The pilot was very friendly and informative and even let me fly shotgun (no experience required)! The views were stunning and even though I'm from Kauai I have never seen it from the air! I definitely recommend flying with them, they made the experience fun and exciting and my love for Kauai has (somehow) grown even more! Air Ventures Hawaii no ka oi!

“Great Airplane Tour of Kauai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Airplane vs helicopter. Plane flies higher and faster. Covers more area in less time, but spends more time in the air. Helicopter is more up close and personal. Plane has big picture view of major portions of the island. Plane costs about half of helicopter tour. People at Airventures were great. Pilot gave a spectacular and informative tour of the amazing island of Kauai. And he greased the landing. Awesome!
