Highlights
  • Soar over Kauai in a vintage biplane
  • Get an aerial perspective on the island’s diverse landscapes
  • Fly inside the crater of Mount Waialeale and Waimea Canyon
  • Communicate with the pilot using two-way radio
What to Expect
Meet your pilot at Lihue Airport and get a safety briefing before gearing up with a vintage-style cloth helmet and goggles and settling into the open cockpit. You also wear a two-way radio to hear live narration. After takeoff, head north over Wailua River, Kapaa, and Anahola mountain range, soaring over Kilauea Lighthouse at Kauai’s northernmost point. A highlight is flying above the waterfall-laced crater of Mount Waialeale. You also see Wailua and Opaeka’a Falls before turning towards the beaches of Poipu. Get a glimpse of Hawaii's largest coffee plantation and Hanapepe Valley, and then take a U-turn inside the rust-colored ravines of Waimea Canyon. Hear native legends of the jagged Na Pali coast while cruising above spires and secluded beaches, and see a popular Hollywood filming location at Honopu'u Arches. Admire the waterfall of Hanakapiai Valley and serene Ke'e beach before the flight touches down at the Lihue Airport.

We have done helicopter tours in the past but wanted to try something new and unique. The biplane ride over the island and through the canyon certainly fit the bill. We will do it again the next time we are in Kauai. Much fun.
