Owner description: 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.

The staff was very friendly. The pilot was knowledgeable and very amusing. We toured the whole island and one thing that struck me was that he would fly over an area and let the right side see then double back and let the left side get the close up look. My wife and I had a blast, and would recommend this to anyone that enjoys seeing different perspectives of places.

The pilot was knowledgeable and his relaxed manner was appreciated. A great value and one of our most memorable experiences in Hawaii.

This was a wonderful way to experience the entire Kauai Island. Our family of 5 were able to view parts of the island we would not have been able to access from a car and the scenery was extraordinary. Our pilot, Harry, was excellent letting us know what was coming up in the scenery. This was such a good way to experience the entire island before doing other activities and especially viewing from the air before going on a boat trip. I just couldn't get enough of the beautiful mountains and the contrasts. It was a very worthwhile way to view this lush island. My photos are numerous as there were so many breathtaking views and contrasts.

Air Ventures gave us a tour of a life time. Never having a real honeymoon and having to cancel our 50th anniversary trip do to health this is a trip we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We both had our own window to view the great Garden Isle. I took many photos which turned out great so we can view them on the computer slideshow to refresh our memory (need them do to our maturity ha ha) and also to show friends what they will see it they visit Kauai and plan a trip with Air Ventures. This was a beautiful flight and added to our awesome vacation. Recommend to all.

My husband and I did this tour as part of our Honeymoon vacation to Hawaii. We were on the flight with another family, but we were able to sit together and each had our own window. The pilot, Paul, was fantastic. He was gave us notice to prepare ourselves for when the flight was going to become a little bumpy and was a calm and reassuring presence throughout the flight. I enjoyed listening as he shared some of his knowledge and enthusiasm for the island and the sites we were cruising past. We did this tour toward the end of our vacation and LOVED it as a review of all the sites we had visited earlier in the week from the land. The pilot surprised us by circling around ensuring that both sides of the plane had a good view of all the sites. We bought the package deal with the boat tour through Holo Holo which was a perfect compliment. We were able to get 2 vantage points of the Napali Coast (from the air and sea) and the plane took us to see parts of island we otherwise wouldn't have been able to see.
