Kauai Deluxe Sightseeing Flight

Choose 1 passenger when booking to see your pricing options. There’s no better way to see the “Garden Island” of Kauai than from the air. This flight tour gives you unbeatable views of the Waimea Canyon, Napali Coast, Hanalei Bay and other island highlights, all from a plane specially designed for sightseeing. Large bubble windows mean you won't miss a thing, and two-way headsets let you communicate with the pilot to learn about the sights below.
  • See the entire island of Kauai in about a hour on an air tour
  • Get spectacular aerial views of canyons, beaches, waterfalls, and sea cliffs
  • Cruise at a slower speed in an aircraft specially designed for sightseeing
  • Guaranteed seating next to a large bubble window for all passengers
What to Expect
Meet your pilot at the conveniently located Lihue airstrip and hop aboard a GA8 Airvan. Built for sightseeing, this aircraft features large bubble windows, high-set wings that don't block the view, and a slower cruising speed for optimal gazing. It seats only six passengers for an intimate experience, and everyone is guaranteed a window seat. Soar above Kauai’s famously dramatic landscapes, from the dry, red valleys of the Waimea Canyon to the peak of Mt. Waialeale, the wettest spot on Earth. See Poipu’s golden sand beaches, the shores of Hanalei Bay, and the towering green spires of the Na Pali Coast. Noise-canceling headphones with a two-way intercom are provided so you can hear your pilot’s narration and ask questions along the way. The flight covers the entire island and lasts for about 60 to 75 minutes.

I am sorry we were not able to take you flying. The Trip Advisor Bookings are always Pending until approved because we are most often full when folks attempt the last minute bookings, such as yours. We have worked hard with Trip Advisor to find another way to do this, such as blocking all tours a week in advance, but then some opportunities are missed. So we have decided to keep all bookings Pending, never Confirmed until we can respond to customers and try to find a different day for them. So sorry this didn't work out for you.

We booked the combo tour with wings and the Blue Dolphin Charters. The pilot was super honest with us regarding some weather that forced us to stick mainly to the coast instead of flying through the valley to get to Na Pali. We were offered to cancel, reschedule or take the

Hello and thank you so much, we try really hard to make this your choice, not us forcing you into an aircraft when we know the visibility will be limited but we want your money anyway. Our pilots want you to enjoy your time with us, and vice versa, they want to enjoy their time with you. So glad you chose to fly with us, we do appreciate it alot. Aloha, Ellen

This plane ride was definitely the highlight of our trip, gorgeous views, knowledgable and helpful staff. The scenery we were able to see on the plane was surreal and seemed okay for motion sickness prone passengers. Informative narration and never felt unsafe in the plane.
