Kauai air tours

We've finally done it! After ten years of operation and trying various tour routes, we have finally whittled it down to just one perfect tour which we consider to be the ultimate flying experience, the 65 minute Grand Deluxe Tour of Kauai!

There are a couple of choices for you. We have two different types of plane, our larger 6 passenger AirVan and our smaller 2 passenger Cessna. And two tour choices in each plane.

The AirVan:

In our AirVan we can give you the highest quality air tour of Kauai, bar none. This roomy plane has huge bubble windows which give you an unobstructed wrap around view as well as a downward view. Communication with your pilot, and each other, is easy using our noise canceling bose headsets. You can enjoy the pilot's expertly crafted narration and artfully selected music, ask questions, share stories and have an unparalleled emotionally charged and rewarding visual experience of what many describe as one of the most beautiful places in the world.

We have two ways of booking this tour, the AirVan Grand Deluxe Tour or the AirVan Private Charter for larger groups.

Tour times are at 9:30, 11:00, 1:00, 2:30 and *4:00 (*times marked are seasonal)

The Cessna:

Our Cessna is an awesome way for couples to enjoy the beauty of Kauai. This small plane will comfortably carry only two of you, one in the front co-pilot seat, and the other behind. Our interactive communication system with noise canceling headsets gives you the opportunity to share your experience with each other and the pilot in a more private setting, and with only two on board you may have a personal experience of the incredible beauty of Kauai. The windows are smaller than the AirVan and some describe the viewing difference to be a Van vs. a compact car – you can still see everything, but in a different way.

Flight times are at 9:30, 11:00, 1:00, 2:30 and *4:00 (*times marked are seasonal)

Cessna Private Tour for Two - Only $270 total!

Instructional Flights
in the Cessna!
Welcome, to all Pilots, Student Pilots and Aviation Enthusiasts. Our Cessna 172 is the perfect plane for you, and we offer a variety of opportunities to engage and enhance your enthusiasm as well as your skills.

NO fuel surcharges, hidden fees, added on taxes at all! We really do fly for 65 minutes, we don’t just say we do!

Window Seats Only!
We love this G8 AirVan, our new touring plane from Australia, it can comfortably seat 6 passengers plus the pilot. There are no middle seats, every seat has large bubble windows for unobstructed views of Kauai.

We strive to hear you say “Best thing I did on Kauai!” – that is music to our ears!

  • Children We love to take children up with us! We have traveled extensively in small planes with our two kids, from infancy to adulthood, and they have always loved it! We find that the little ones 3 and under often fall asleep and there will be no charge for them. Those two and under can sit on your lap, the three year old must be given a seat, but still we won’t charge for them.
  • For Cruisers We provide free ground transportation to and from the cruise ship area, it's only about 10 minutes away! And check out Ellen's Page where I have posted a few ideas on how to get the most out of your one or two days on Kauai!
