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.

My family of 6 immensely enjoyed our trip around Kauai and took many pictures. The pilot was very personable and informative as we soared over the coffee plantations, Napali Coast and Hanalei Bay. I highly recommend the experience.

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
