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.

We took an hour flight to get a birds eye view of Kauai. Our pilot, Harry, was awesome. He provided a great overview of the unique sites. The open cockpit was a real rush. All the staff were welcoming and made sure we were well taken care of. Good job Air Hawaii!

The Air Adventures has been our favorite. The beauty of the island from the air was spectacular. Eric was a great pilot. Thank you for a great experience.

We had a great time seeing Kauai by plane. Our pilot Desi (sp?) made our plane ride fun, informative, and comfortable.

We has the good fortune to have very experienced, Eric, as our pilot guide. Everyone in the small plane (7 seater) gets a window seat and Eric was very cognizant of making sure both sides of the plane got to see fabulous views. We saw whales/dolphins, countless waterfalls, dramatic canyons, and stunning coastlines. The ride was rougher than expected but Eric was well prepared for potential motion sickness. At the end, none of our kids tossed cookies and we got to see things you can only access by air. A definite highlight of the Kauai vacation!

Impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff. Our pilot, Harry, gave us a smooth flight, pointed out the sites, and went out of his way to fly over humpback whales. Everyone gets a window seat so the viewing is spectacular.
