Our Pilot was very engaging and had a lot of historical stuff to talk about. He made extra efforts to give our sensitive stomachs a smooth, comfortable ride! This was by far our favorite experience in a vacation full of wonderful memories.
A flight to remember

The plane ride was magical! Our pilot kept things light and fun during the turbulent moments. Even with clouds, we managed to see all the waterfalls and gorgeous coastline.
Great flying experience over Kauai

We had a great time on this air tour. Our pilot Makana was very professional and knowledgeable of the island. He made sure we were having a good time and kept checking in on us. It was definitely worth the cost.

Pilot was awesome and very friendly. I highly recommend this guy! Great island guild, don't let his age fool you, he rocks and made the trip very memorable!
Great experience!
, Jun 2022
Great views of the coast and Waimea Canyon.. with a nice guide from the pilot. Our pilot, Nate, really tried his best to show both the left and right side passengers all the views esp when we got to the Na Pali Coast. It was windy when we went and the plane was def a little scary but we were assured that everything was fine. Make sure you are not afraid of heights or get motion sickness. This will def not be for you!
Beautiful scenery
, Jun 2022
The people of AirVentures are amazing. The pilot (Nate) was funny and informative. Unfortunately I got sick on the plane (and i even took dramamine). But Nate was helpful (he noticed I needed a cool towel) and helped me get through my embarrassment 😀 When we landed, Nate got me ginger ale and Jill was very helpful in helping me get through the nausea. Overall it was a tough experience for me, but the scenery is amazing. If you are looking at doing this, I would book with AirVentures.
Awesome experience

Beautiful Air Tour of Kauai
, Jun 2022
Our guide was great! He was very knowledgeable about the island so he could tell us a lot of history to go with the geography we were seeing. He made sure everyone (both sides of the plane) got good views of each site we flew over. I highly recommend!
Awesome Tour
, May 2022
Seeing the Na Pali coast was absolutely amazing. The flight was smooth and the landing was great. The only improvement I would suggest was for the pilot to speak a little louder as my headset was on max volume and I still could not hear him. However, his flying skills were great.
Must do!
, May 2022

We were blessed with great weather, so got 100% of the tour; loved the shorelines, valleys, falls, and personal narration. Thanks for a great and very safe time, Makana!
Amazing island tour

Amazing island tour. Nate was an excellent pilot and guide and provided lots of interesting information. We saw so many places we would have missed had we not done this tour- highly recommend
I hope what's next can compare
, May 2022
We had a fantastic time!! The pilot and ground crew couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. The flight was very smooth considering the different drafts coming over the mountain passes. I would recommend this to everyone. This is the start of our stay here...I hope all of the other things we have planned will compare.
Excellent tour!
, May 2022
Great staff and excellent value tour. Even on a cloudy, rainy day Nate our pilot showed us a great time. Good commentary as well. Would highly recommend to any one visiting Kauai
