Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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.

My experience left me speechless! This tour was the best way to see and appreciate the garden island of Kauai! Our pilot Brian was very knowledgable of the history of each part of the island, he made sure we were comfortable and saw every waterfall. He pointed out all of the unique & special things about Kauai! He was entertaining as well with fun facts! No clouds blocked our view and the flight was pleasant. I would highly recommend this tour and we all gladly gave our pilot a tip because he did such a great job!

What a lovely experience for our first time in such a plane! The view and the lights in the late afternoon were wonderful. It was good to see all the places we went to, from the air. People working there are very nice (be sure to book your tour 24h before...)
We had a very pleasant time!

This was an amazing experience. The customer service was great and the facility was not hard to find at all. The flight was smooth and it was beautiful day. The pilot was experienced and enjoyed the information he provided. Hope everyone books this tour. We had a great time.

We started our vacation with the tour on the open air biplane for 2, plus the pilot. So cool to be in the open cockpit for the flight. We were able to take in a view of the island that you can't get to by car and boat in some areas. My one tip for anyone with longer hair, tie it back, OMG my hair was in knots but so worth it. Great pictures, b

Nice overview of the island. Very smooth 55 min. ride even with looming clouds and wind.
Good pilot, friendly, with a lots of comments. We were 6 people from the same family, it felt like a
private plane.
