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.

You get to see all the island attractions from above. As Kauai is such an spectacular place the trip is awesome. There are canyons and mountain ranges that are unaccessible from the ground and a plane trip is a chance to enjoy these unique views. The view from the Na Pali coast is breathtaking, unforgettable from above. The flight ride was smooth and thorough and the captain was friendly and professional. The check in process was smooth and the girl that handled it was nice and helpful. Overall a great experience. Money well spent.

This hour-long air tour was good. The pilot was extremely knowledgeable but it was hard to hear through the headphones at times. I was nervous in the little plane and he was very considerate and would let us know if there was some rough air coming up. The bumps were minimal, the majority of the time it was pretty smooth. Be aware that it's warm in small planes in general, and this one was no exception. Seeing the canyons and waterfalls up close was amazing!

Great times, will be a memory of a lifetime for me and my husband on our Anniversary trip. Eric, was very nice and an excellent pilot to explore Kaua'i! Air Ventures Hawaii is the way to go to explore Hawaii in the air.

We looked at all the helicopter tour and airplane tour companies and decided on this company. Number one, they are less than half the cost of the helicopter tours. Number two, the tour was absolutely amazing. The plane tours fly much higher than the helicopter tours, providing absolutely breath taking views of the entire island. Well worth the time and money
