Know More about this tour

Head to Lihue Airport at your pre-arranged departure time for your Kauai biplane tour. Meet your expert pilot, receive a safety orientation, and step inside a modern fixed-wing biplane for a safe, comfortable, scenic flight over Kauai. You'll be provided with vintage cloth helmet and goggles, letting you travel back in time and enjoy an authentic and nostalgic flying experience. Throughout your flight, you can listen and talk to your pilot through your 2-way headset.

Heading north along Kauai’s East Shore, pass popular hotels and beaches such as Kauai Beach Resort, Kauai Beach Villas and Coco Palms, where Elvis made the romantic movie Blue Hawaii. View the Wailua Golf Course and the snaking Wailua River, and spot Fern Grotto and the imposing Sleeping Giant mountain ridge, also known as Nounou Mountain. Your pilot will tell you about this mountain's ancient Hawaiian legends as you fly past.

Fly over rustic Kapa’a Town and pristine Keali’a Beach, glide along the Anahola mountain range, and pass by the northernmost most point in Hawaii, the Kilauea Lighthouse. Continue up the Kilauea River toward the jagged cliffs of Hanalei Valley, and then soar over the ridge of Mt Waialeale – the wettest spot on earth – to admire cascading waterfalls.

Make your way to Kilohana Crater, one of the main volcanoes that created Kauai, and then pass over Wailua Falls and Opaeka’a Falls before arriving back at Lihue Airport.

After admiring the sights above, continue over Kauai’s sunny South Shore, whose highlights include famous Poipu Beach, Spouting Horn, Kipu Kai, Shipwreck Beach, Lawai Beach and Kauai Coffee, Hawaii's largest coffee plantation.

Soar over Hanapepe Valley and Olokele Valley, and then take a big U-turn inside breathtaking Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Descend over open fields to Polihale Beach, the largest beach in Hawaii, which stretches along the ridged Na Pali Coast. Hear stories about the ancient legends of this sacred coastline, where Hawaiians lived in ultimate privacy centuries ago.

You’ll also see the Cathedrals of Honopu'u and the Honopu'u Arches, where several Hollywood movies were filmed, as well as Kalalau Valley. Fly over lush Hanakapi'ai Valley, with its cascading waterfall, and continue over to the secluded Ke'e beach before making your way back to Lihue.

  • Kevin and the girls in the office are the best! Had a great time and we are planning on doing it again next year!!! Loved it!!!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Harry, our pilot, was awesome and the views were spectacular!! We would do it again and again.

  • 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.

  • Very good tour, pilot was well informed about the island. Staff were helpfull and very friendly.
    Much better than any helicopter tours.

  • 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!!! :

  • What a great way to see Kauai! Had a great time, saw everything we wanted to see in the convertible of the skies : Would definitely reccommend this tour to those visiting Kauai.. Our pilot Harry was very knowledgeable and even threw in a few trick moves at the end!

  • What a fantastic way to view the island and all of her beauty! A complete tour of the island after my wife and I drove the day before! A definite inclusion to an agenda if you wish to see the island with the wind in your hair!

  • 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!
