Full description
Set out on a magnificent aerial adventure catching sights of all of the Garden Isle’s most notable natural wonders. Climb into Kaui’s only vintage-style biplane, where you'll even have the option to wear the "Snoopy" cap with built-in state-of-the-art headset and goggles. After a quick safety briefing, you will take off to explore many of Kauai's highlights, including Kipu Kai, Poipu Beach, Spouting Horn, Kauai's vast expanse of coffee fields, the picturesque Waimea Canyon, the lush Hanapepe Valley, and Jurrasic Falls.

Experience the thrill of an open cockpit as you soar over the rugged landscapes of Kauai, all the while communicating with your expert pilot using a 2-way radio. Relish in the breathtaking views as you soar across the 21-mile long Napali Coast. Marvel at the majestic spires of this mountainous coastline before heading to the beautiful Hanalei Valley, Kilauea Lighthouse, and Wailua Falls, where Fantasy Island was filmed. Pass by the northernmost point in Hawaii, Kilauea Lighthouse, and see the nesting spots of the Nene (Hawaiian goose). Glide up the Kilauea River with its mesmerizing waterfall and fly over the lush Hanalei Valley, taking in views of its jagged 4,000-foot cliffs.

You will then continue on over the ridge of Mt. Waialeale Crater, passing more waterfalls than you can count. Then to Kilohana Crater, which is known as the secondary volcano that helped to create Kauai. Listen as your friendly and knowledgable pilot shares interesting facts about the island and its history. Conclude your flight tour by gliding down the glimmering Wailua River, verdant Fern Grotto, and learning about the ancient Hawaiian legends of the area before making your way to your landing zone. By the end of your sightseeing excursion, you will have covered the entire island.
