Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Take the ride of a lifetime with this exhilarating air tour of Kauai! Choose from six different departure times to suit your schedule, then make your way to the Lihue Airport on the day of your flight. Meet your expert pilot-guide and receive a safety orientation before climbing aboard a vintage-style, fixed-wing biplane. You’ll ride in an open cockpit wearing an old-fashioned cloth helmet and goggles for a unique experience that combines nostalgic flair with modern safety.

After takeoff, fly over the hotels and villas of the East Shore, the sacred Wailua River and the ‘Sleeping Giant’ of Nounou Mountain. See historic Kapa’a Town, the white sandy stretch of Keali’a Beach, the Anahola Mountains, and the iconic Kilauea Lighthouse. Feel the wind on your face as you soar over the beautiful crescent of Hanalei Bay and the peak of Mt Waialeale — the wettest spot on Earth.

Admire unmatched views of the golden beaches and luxury resorts of Poipu, the grandeur of Waimea Canyon and the towering cliffs of the Na Pali Coast. Spot tropical waterfalls hidden in the jungle and tucked-away treasures that are best viewed from the air. Throughout the journey, communicate with your pilot through two-way headphones and listen to narration about Kauai’s history, geography and legends.

Amazing Experience
, Dec 2020
We had a great time. The pilot was very nice and he made sure we get to see every rainbow and every waterfall possible. He gave us a lot of fun information along the way. We felt very comfortable getting on the plane with him. I am glad we didn't choose a helicopter ride. This was private and we could see everything! Thank you! :)

Scheduled for this tour but Biplane out of commission and waiting on parts. So I gave it 3 stars for allowing me to schedule when it was not even available. Took another small plane tour with same company but was delayed TWICE. They did give each of us a free T-Shirt, but I would have rather been on time. Pilot was good in assisting passenger with motion sickness.

This tour was phenomenal! By far this is the best way to see the island. We got to see the entire island in all its glory. I was very apprehensive at first, but once we were in the air I totally forgot my nerves. Henry, our pilot, took great care of us. He was knowledgeable about the island and what we were seeing. Great Landing Henry!!! :

Fantastic experience! We took the 10 flight and it could not have been better. Harry, the pilot, provided a great experience from the pre-flight history lesson, to understanding the plane, to preparing to fly to landing. We saw whales, mountains,valleys, the NaPali coast,beaches and golf courses. We recommend doing this flight early in your trip and to wear a jacket. Bring your camera!
