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.</br></br>

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. </br></br>

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.</br></br>

Air Ventures Hawaii also offers you the ride of a lifetime in our 60-minute air tour in Kauai's <b>only open cockpit bi-plane<b>, 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 went on a trip back in October 2016. We choose this company based on really good reviews and a great price. This was the right decision. We had a great experience. Very friendly staff and you feel safe. The airplane is small, but provides everyone with a window, so you can take nice photos. The pilot knew everything about... More

My husband surprised me for my birthday with a biplane tour of the whole island of Kauai. It was absolutely amazing! The views were incredible, the staff was so accommodating and our pilot, Kevin, was awesome! We highly recommend this tour and our pilot to anyone looking for a beautiful full view of the island and a thrill!

A great way to see the island - more fun than a helicopter and not that much more expensive. Our pilot Kevin was very knowledgeable about planes and Kauai. The one hour tour in an open cockpit allows you to see all around, is an experience not normally had, and does make you feel like you could chase after the... More

This is a really great trip. The pilot was very informative. A wonderful was to see the inaccessible parts of the island, especially along the NaPali coast.

We thought the bi-plane tour might be kind of scary! It wasn't at all! Kevin was a superb pilot, very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about that island. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone visiting the island and looking to get a good overview of Kauai. Thanks again Airventures!!

My husband and I opted to do the biplane tour when we arrived in Kauai a few days ago. It was so awesome!! Our pilot Kevin was a great guide, starting from explaining the history of the plane itself, then sharing his almost 30 years of experience on the island in flight, and then finally culminating in an excellent restaurant...

We had an amazing time going up in the "Red Baron" biplane for a soaring journey over most of Kauai. Our pilot, Kevin, was extremely friendly and full of great facts and information during our journey. Needless to say, he was an excellent pilot, providing a smooth and comfortable ride. What a thrilling journey, with absolutely breath-taking views of the... More

I did this flight a few years ago and enjoyed the smooth flight as a way to see the island. This repeat trip was even more spectacular! Weather was amazing, Eric was an awesome pilot , host, and tour guide. Well worth the time and money. A do over.

Kauai must be seen in this way. The scenery is staggering from the ground, but absolutely breathtaking from the air. We flew with Ray on a Private Airplane Tour, and were well looked after, both with supplies to help with air sickness and with an amazing flight of the island. I would highly recommend this company for a tour; they... More
