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.

Our biplane pilot Kevin was wonderful. He knew I was a bit of a nervous flyer and was very reassuring when there was normal turbulence. We saw the entire island, all theee volcanos and even flew inside the largest. While over the ocean we stuck...More

We had a wonderful tour of the island and will recommend you to everyone we know coming to Kauai! We did a helicopter tour years ago but found the fixed wing airplane so much smoother and more enjoyable!! 😄

No guarantees but we have been visiting Kauai for the last 10 years and the mornings are typically calmer with the winds and the afternoons seem more clear but a bit windy. Try to stay on top of the weather reports and find... More

Yes, it's a great tour. Helicopters get closer, but this is a spectacular and complete tour. For the price of fuels and aircraft maintenance, the company that does this probably only makes about $100 off you. It is a great... More
