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.

This was an awesome trip. Dennis made sure we saw all parts of the island. We have taken helicopter trips before and this was better. We got the entire island and loads of waterfalls and the tip of a whale! Would highly recommend!

Highly recommend! Awesome!!! Ray, the owner was our pilot and was fantastic!!! We had taken a helicopter tour with another company a few days before and this was so much better! We saw more of the island and at better views. The plane ride was smooth and quieter. Ray was informative and very personable. Will use Airventures again on our... More

We had a most thrilling sightseeing tour with Dennis as our pilot. We were picked up at no additional charge from the cruise pier and returned. Dennis is very knowledgeable and we felt very at ease. I have a fear of looking straight down, but I was taking photos like crazy and felt very very safe. They even took our... More

We met our pilot at the Lihue airport. He was very professional and really knew his Kauai facts. The flight was just the right amount of time (about an hour in the air). I really don't like flying but our pilot was great and made us feel so comfortable that I was able to just relax and enjoy the tour.... More

Our trip with Air Ventures was exactly what we had hoped for it to be. Our pilot was a real laid back gentleman whom had the best knowledge of the geographical features of Kauai of anyone we met during our trip. We went on a day that had some higher than usual trade winds and some storm activity, and our... More

Wow, what a perfect way to see the island of Kauai including sights that are not accessible by car. Eric, our pilot, was knowledgeable, humorous and so accommodating. It was amazing to see the Napoli Coast, Mt. Waialeale (the wettest place on earth), Waimea Canyon, numerous waterfalls and so much more. What a unique experience.

We've done a small heli tour of kauai but far preferred our flight tour on the red baron biplane! Our pilot was very knowledgeable, we circled whales, and got a nice slow view of the beautiful Island. Unlike the heli, this guarantees one of 2 front seats (I'm the one that always gets the lousy middle seat on a helicopter).
