Overview
Combine nostalgia with unbeatable aerial views on a vintage biplane flight over Kauai. Feel the excitement of an open cockpit as you soar over the Garden Isle’s geography, from the sandy beaches of Poipu and the red ravines of the Waimea Canyon to the jagged Na Pali Coast and Mount Waialeale’s lush crater.
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 did go in the morning but I think their advice is what counts and they are very informative and responsive to questions. We didn't find any issues at all with wind/chop and had an amazing experience.

The struts definitely interfere with picture taking. For good pictures I'd suggest another flight, possibly helicopter with open doors, or one of this vendors fixed wing flights and request to sit in the right hand seat.
