Considered the BEST way to see the Island of Kauai since 2004, Air Ventures Hawaii-Kauai offers three great Kauai air tours. Air Ventures proudly brings a whole new level of comfort and affordability to Air Ventures Hawaii by offering Kauai Air Tours. Thanks to a commitment to personalized service, Kauai Tours will not hesitate to go the extra mile to ensure guest comfort, enjoyment, safety, and more. Guests become part of the “ohana” or family in Hawaiian as they share the beautiful Garden Isle from the comfort of extra-large viewing windows and engaging pilot tour guides.
There are three main Kauai Air Tours from which to choose. They include the Big Kahuna Air Tour, which is the most popular Kauai Air Tour. This closed-cockpit tour encompasses the entire Garden Island and includes breathtaking views of the Waimea Canyon, the Lumahai cascading waterfalls, the Napali Coast, and everything else Kauai has to offer. This gives guests the ability to experience the Hawaii paradise from a bird’s eye view in the comfort of a well-equipped airplane.
The second tour option is the Kauai Biplane Adventure. This more adventurous experience allows guests to ride side-by-side in the open cockpit front, while the pilot operates the controls of the Biplane from the rear cockpit. This is a ride of a lifetime, that allows guests to comfortably experience Kauai’s amazing views unobstructed in this open cockpit.
The last tour option to choose from is the Private Luxury Air Tour. This truly unique experience is a private tour aboard the AirVentures’ C-182. This exclusive experience gives guests unparalleled access to Kauai’s famous sights while they are comfortably enclosed in a private, luxurious plane.
When visitors come to Hawaii, or Kauai in particular, they want to see all the sights that have become synonymous with this paradise on earth. This is ideally done from the vantage point of a plane as this provides a bird’s eye view while keeping guests in the comfort and luxurious setting of a plane.
All the tours at Air Ventures are regulated by FAA routes similar to helicopter tours. Unlike when taking a helicopter tour, though, there are two middle seats in our airplanes. There is also more leniency in terms of weight limits when touring via a plane versus a helicopter. The GA-8 Airvan can accommodate passengers up to 320lbs, the Cessna allows for 270lbs per passenger and the Biplane should have a total of 500lbs for two passengers.
Many feel airplane tours allow for a more beautiful and unobstructed, panoramic view of the island of Kauai when compared to other options. All airplane tours are also a full 60 minutes. In each tour, pilots will attempt to provide a similar experience for all guests, but each guest’s experience will be altered based on weather and other factors. In short, Air Ventures Hawaii-Kauai will provide the very best and most affordable tour possible on the day of the tour, while maintaining guest comfort and safety first and foremost.
Speaking of safety, Air Ventures can proudly say that they have a perfect safety record, meaning there have been no incidents or accidents at all since their first flight in 2004. This means guests can sit back and enjoy the beauty of Hawaii without fear of problems or potential accidents.
When it comes to clothing, guests should dress similarly to what they would wear on the ground. Air Ventures recommends wearing a color other than white to reduce the natural glare from the bubble windows. Guests can bring their cameras and can achieve photos with any lens. Air Ventures also will let guests mount a Go-Pro on the exterior of the airplane for an additional fee of $25.00.
-Air Ventures also offers helicopter tours as part of the same airline. Therefore, guests of Air Ventures Hawaii-Kauai can save up to 50% off a helicopter tour when choosing an Air Ventures helicopter tour in addition to an airplane tour. Groups of six or more can also enjoy specialized group rates. In addition, returning guests are offered special rates for being repeat customers.
-Pilot gratuity is not included in the price of the tour. Therefore, it is customary and very much appreciated for guests to tip their pilots for a job well done.
