About Air Ventures Hawaii
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.

We have done helicopter tours in the past but wanted to try something new and unique. The biplane ride over the island and through the canyon certainly fit the bill. We will do it again the next time we are in Kauai. Much fun.

This was the sir portion of our "Best of Kauai" tour. J.T. our pilot was wonderful and very knowledgable. It was a one hour flight around most of the island with emphasis on Wimea Canyon an the Na Pali coast. He made sure that both sides of the plane got to see all the sights.

Outstanding and reasonably priced (compared to the helicopters). We saw all of Kauai, especially the Na Pali coast. Try morning tours, weather is always foremost. Only 6 people per plane so everyone gets a window seat. Approximately $170 per person which includes taxes.
