Meet your pilot at the conveniently located Lihue airstrip and hop aboard a GA8 Airvan. Built for sightseeing, this aircraft features large bubble windows, high-set wings that don't block the view, and a slower cruising speed for optimal gazing. It seats only six passengers for an intimate experience, and everyone is guaranteed a window seat.

Soar above Kauai’s famously dramatic landscapes, from the dry, red valleys of the Waimea Canyon to the peak of Mt. Waialeale, the wettest spot on Earth. See Poipu’s golden sand beaches, the shores of Hanalei Bay, and the towering green spires of the Na Pali Coast. Noise-canceling headphones with a two-way intercom are provided so you can hear your pilot’s narration and ask questions along the way.

The flight covers the entire island and lasts for about 60 to 75 minutes.
