Airplane tours in Kauai are a popular way to see the beauty of this Hawaiian island from a unique and breathtaking perspective. Kauai is known for its stunning natural scenery, including its rugged coastline, lush valleys, and cascading waterfalls, and an airplane tour allows you to take in these sights in a way that you simply can't on the ground.
Airplane tours of Kauai typically depart from the island's main airport in Lihue, and there are several tour companies that offer this type of experience. During an airplane tour of Kauai, you can expect to see some of the island's most famous sights, including the Na Pali Coast, Waimea Canyon, Jurassic Park Falls, and Mount Waialeale. You'll also be able to fly over some of the island's hidden gems, such as secluded beaches and hidden waterfalls.
Airplane tours of Kauai typically last around an hour, and they may include a narrated tour from the pilot, providing information and context about the sights you're seeing. Some tours may also include the option to upgrade to a private tour, or to combine an airplane tour with a helicopter or boat tour for a more comprehensive experience.
It's worth noting that airplane tours are not the only way to see Kauai from the air. Helicopter tours are another popular option. However, if you prefer the stability and comfort of an airplane, or if you're looking for a more affordable way to see the island from the air, an airplane tour of Kauai can be a fantastic option.

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.
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.
