Overview
More
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.

Excellent mid-day ride on a nice day. Great view of the Na Pali coastline, seeing quite a few whales. Look forward to doing it again.

I was apprehensive but it wasn't long before I was taken in the the breathtaking views. Open air cockpit, the sights and a knowledgeable guide, this makes for a memorable trip. We did a complete loop of the island and the interior too. Thanks Harry!

Enjoyed the higher overview of the island than the helicopters provided. Still able to see whales. Great commentary but not too much!

This was the highlight of our trip. AirVentures handled all arrangements with no hitches. I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see Kauai from the air. Harry, the pilot, was a professional pilot all the way (from someone who flew flight tours...More

Bucket list experience! My wife and I truly enjoyed the flight. We had no issues getting our 50 something year old bodies in and out of the biplane.

The 5 of us totally enjoyed the flights and sights of the trip. Desi was extremely knowledgeable as well as entertaining as she narrated the sights of Kauai. I would recommend using Air Ventures without hesitation to anyone.

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
