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 are so glad we took this plane tour! The pilot was nice and very knowledgeable about the history of the island as we flew over old volcano craters & how they formed Kauai. We went on the 1:30 flight & the clouds were high...More

Looking at Kauai from above was a wonderful experience. One of the highlights of our Hawaiian trip. My husband was fearful of the helicopter ride, and chose the plane and he was so happy he did this trip. I would recommend this to all.

We experienced a calm, lovely Hawaiian day soaring between puffy clouds and dramatic landscapes in a prop plane. We have toured in a helicopter before and that felt fast of getting to the 'sights'. Flying a full hour in a plane was a smooth visually...More

This was by far the best hour flight in my life. I was able to see most of Kauai by air. I can't stop taking about how awesome my flight was. I will most definitely do again. Thanks Air Ventures Hawaii.

Pilot was very experienced, and calmed my fears of being in a small plane for the first time. The views were magnificent. Well worth adding this activity to your visit to the island.

No guarantees but we have been visiting Kauai for the last 10 years and the mornings are typically calmer with the winds and the afternoons seem more clear but a bit windy. Try to stay on top of the weather reports and find... More

Yes, it's a great tour. Helicopters get closer, but this is a spectacular and complete tour. For the price of fuels and aircraft maintenance, the company that does this probably only makes about $100 off you. It is a great... More

Hi, the cockpit has more visibility to the side and below the airplane. For most people, its easy to see and take pictures out to the side, which is about chest level. We will provide an extra cushion to sit on, and it... More
