Flying like it was meant to be
Mar 2020
This trip depends upon the weather, but the pilot did everything to get me all the shots safely. And what a pilot-35,000 hours commercial experience. He knew all the weather tricks, all the sites to see with the best perspectives for photographs. I came back slamming my fist in the air, "Yes, another bucket list item done perfectly".

Fantastic Flight
Mar 2020 • Solo
This morning I took a tour of Kauai with Air Ventures and it was better than I expected. JT took us so many places and made sure we all had great views for pictures. It was a wonderful adventure in the air. I even saw my resort from the plane. One of the bonuses was seeing a few whales swimming. After we landed I drove to one of the waterfalls for a more up close look. I especially appreciated the care and safety measures before and during the flight. It seemed like everyone in the plane had a great time. If you’re still on the fence about going...do it! Have a blast like we did.

The whole experience with AirVentures Hawaii inKuaii was positive. Pick-up near the cruise port, assistance in boarding for my husband. A very smooth flight around an unbelievable island. Next time will do the BiPlane!

A great way to see Kauai!
Mar 2020
We took the Big Kahuna Kauai Air Tour which was truly a great experience and the best way to see the entire island of Kauai. The team were excellent, even calling us to recommend an earlier time so we could guarantee the best tour of the island avoiding bad weather which would be coming in later on in the day. Makoa was a great pilot, helpful in answering our many questions as well as showing us some of the local spots since he knows the area so well. A wonderful experience with jaw dropping views - would recommend to anyone who visits Kauai!

Kauai air tours (Air Ventures)
Mar 2020 • Couples
Outstanding and reasonably priced (compared to the helicopters). We saw all of Kauai, especially the Na Pali coast. Try morning tours, weather is always foremost. Only 6 people per plane so everyone gets a window seat. Approximately $170 per person which includes taxes.

Not informative
Feb 2020 • Couples
I have been on several Kauai air trips the last twelve years and this was the worst. Not informative. Kauai is an amazing place with a rich history and one-of-a-kind geology and natural sights. The pilot seemed to know none of it. The only commentary was when every five minutes he would say “Isn’t this beautiful, guys?” He DID point out the names of three towns and pointed out the airport. (Thanks Captain Obvious.).
Half way through I asked if he could provide some commentary on the sites that we were flying over. He started a comment about the Kauai king back in the days of Kamehameha, but never finished the story. (In reality a fascinating story about how Kauai was seceded to Kamehameha, but he seemed to know none of it.)
Beautiful scenery. It IS Kauai after all. But if you want to see Kauai from the air and learn nothing in the process - save your money and watch YouTube videos of it.

A magical experience
Feb 2020
The entire experience was amazing. Our pilot (JT, I think) was great with his narrative and of course with his flying. We did it with our 13 month baby in our lap and she loved it as well. All in all, a great, magical experience

Awesome whole island plane tour of Kaui
Feb 2020 • Couples
Our trip was spectacular!.. Makoa was an excellent pilot!.. the weather was very windy and Makoa flew us to an area that was as calm as he could find, with wonderful views. Safety was his first priority, and than we had the ride of our lives. We saw a circular rainbow, a whale, and many amazing waterfalls! We started in a light rain and ended with a sunny, smooth as silk landing:).. it’s the only way to see the island!..I would highly recommend Air Ventures to everyone!
