Vintage Biplane Tour of Kauai

Open Cockpit Biplane Flight Over Kauai

Take the ride of a lifetime with this exhilarating air tour of Kauai! Choose from six different departure times to suit your schedule, then make your way to the Lihue Airport on the day of your flight. Meet your expert pilot-guide and receive a safety orientation before climbing aboard a vintage-style, fixed-wing biplane. You’ll ride in an open cockpit wearing an old-fashioned cloth helmet and goggles for a unique experience that combines nostalgic flair with modern safety.

After takeoff, fly over the hotels and villas of the East Shore, the sacred Wailua River and the ‘Sleeping Giant’ of Nounou Mountain. See historic Kapa’a Town, the white sandy stretch of Keali’a Beach, the Anahola Mountains, and the iconic Kilauea Lighthouse. Feel the wind on your face as you soar over the beautiful crescent of Hanalei Bay and the peak of Mt Waialeale — the wettest spot on Earth.

Admire unmatched views of the golden beaches and luxury resorts of Poipu, the grandeur of Waimea Canyon and the towering cliffs of the Na Pali Coast. Spot tropical waterfalls hidden in the jungle and tucked-away treasures that are best viewed from the air. Throughout the journey, communicate with your pilot through two-way headphones and listen to narration about Kauai’s history, geography and legends.

After 70 minutes in the air, you’ll touch down at Lihue with an amazing new perspective of the enchanting Garden Island.

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!

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2015

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.
