We did this yesterday and we absolutely adored it . They took photos for us at the plane with. Nate our pilot which I liked. Nate was v welcoming and excellent at pointing out the places we were . He was a very good pilot and we felt safe in the plane . The scenery is out of this world . It’s a great way to see Kauai as the stunning Napali coast is not accessible by road . We drove to lookouts for Napali coast and Waimea Canyon but nothing comes close to the views from this plane . This tour is a must do when in Kauai . We thought it was very good value for money too.

Mahalo for the 5-star review! We love getting feedback from our guests as we strive to treat everyone as family giving them the best possible tour of our "Island Paradise". I'll pass your comments on to Nate, who always appreciates hearing that he is doing such a great job. Mahalo.

This was one of the most outstanding activities we’ve done! We had done a helicopter tour years ago and the plane ride far exceeded that experience. The plane ride being slower, gives more time to take in the beauty of the landscape. Ray, our pilot, customized the experience. We not only saw the whole island but caught a couple of whale flukes. He shared great commentary about everything we viewed. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Jill, the woman behind the scenes, who not only handles reservations but does pre-flight prep and is extremely welcoming & gracious. Can’t say enough about the experience & the owners of this company.

This was a very cool way to see Kauai from the air. Nate, our pilot, was very cool and knowledgeable. No matter what side of the plane you sit on, you will get to see and take pictures of everything. We strapped our GoPro ($30 fee) to the wing and got some additional epic videos and photos of the island.

Nate is a a great pilot and we barely knew we were flying. The takeoff and landing was super smooth. When in the air, the ride was smooth and refreshing. This tour was very cost effective and we would do it again!

The views of Kauai from the air are absolutely breathtaking. This hour tour of the entire island was worth every penny. I highly recommend this tour for anyone. You will be able to truly appreciate and soak up all the beauty of the island.

Chartered a private flight to see Kauai from the top-view. It was one of the best experience in my life. Ray, our pilot is really nice and skillful. I’ll definitely do it again if I revisit the island.

There is so much of the beautiful island of Kaua’i that is inaccessible by road. So, you either have to take a boat trip or an airplane (or helicopter) ride.
The boat trip will reveal all the majestic beauty of the Na Pali Coast, but from the air you can see not only the craggy west coast, but also the beauty of the interior…the lush land, the waterfalls and Waimea Canyon (The Grand Canyon of the Pacific and so much more.
Air ventures is a great way to do this activity. The plane ride is much more keenly priced than the helicopters, and I venture (no pun intended) to suggest just as good.
On my trip, Pilot Nate was full of explanations of the history, the land and details of the rock formations. He skilfully guided over the many lovely waterfalls and after sn hour brought his charges safely back to Lihue.
I strongly recommend AirVentures to anyone eager to see and learn about Kaua’i.

WOW! Just stunning. Felt completely safe in the hands of our pilot and got a truly stunning view of the island. The staff on the ground too were super thoughtful and helpful, offering our daughter all kinds of nausea remedies upon landing. Even though the weather wasn't totally perfect the day we flew, it was still a memorable and magical experience! THANK YOU!!

It was an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience for me and my partner and we were so glad we chose to go with a plane instead of the helicopter tour. We were able to see all of the island on a cloudless day and the 1 hour spent in the air was just enough to go all the way around. Great pilot, very knowledgeable about the island and the ride was very smooth. If you are afraid of heights or prone to nausea, take a dramamine (gravol) tablet, but I was fine without it!
