The views were spectacular and Nate was a wonderful pilot and tour guide! Would recommend to anyone who wants to see the full beauty of Kauai.
great views / difficult flight
, Aug 2022
I have never been airsick or seasick before this tour - it took me a few hours to recover. My boyfriend got sick in the parking lot. We had to wait about an hour to even get in our car and drive back to the hotel. The views were spectacular, but it was such a bummer to be so nauseous on vacation.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Aloha, we are so glad you enjoyed it!! But sorry that you threw up. We hope you still enjoyed it. Thank you for your feedback we are working on getting new equipment to help people from getting so nauseous, and we are so sorry that you and your boyfriend felt so sick, but we hope there would be a next time with us. We hope you enjoyed our beautiful island!! Mahalo, Air Ventures Team
Must Do!

Great time with my family

The scenery was incredible, great views from the plane. Got a little warm in the plane, but overall a great excursion. Would recommend to those that want to save some money from the helicopter rides.
Kauai by air
, Jul 2022
We arrived 30 minutes early, got checked in, had pictures taken and were in the air at 10 sharp. Makana (sp) was our pilot and did an amazing job. Great sense of humor and very knowledgeable. The views were breathtaking, Kauai is such a beautiful place. Definitely recommend. Mahalo 🤙
Not the best tour
, Jul 2022
You are not able to get good pix in the air. The wing is in your way or the support that holds the wing is in your way to get a clear pix. It is very hot in the plan as there is no A/C. The pilot was off in some of his statistics he presented.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Aloha, I'm so sorry to hear your experience was not up to our standards. It's so rare that we ever get less than 5-stars on our tours. Could you please send your booking information to or call me at 808-651-0679 so I can address the issue with the appropriate pilot? I'll await your reply. Mahalo,
Beautiful trip
, Jul 2022
This tour showed all the beautiful sites of Kauai! I am VERY prone to motion sickness was but was only a little queasy (which is a huge win for me!) The company was very helpful: I took 2 doses of meclizine before the trip and the company gave me mints and a cold towel to keep my stomach calm. Much appreciated!
HIGHlight in Kauai

Amazing! Thank you Makana for being a great pilot (driving & communication). Mints and gingerbread were a good finish lol
Kauai Island Air Tour
, Jul 2022
Fantastic tour with our Pilot Camden. He gave us the right amount of information of sights we were looking at . Was a clear day and we enjoyed some amazing views .
Great tour, but plane is hot.
, Jul 2022
The overall view, time spent in the air, our pilot, and the narration was great. Main issue is the plane is not air conditioned, and it gets really hot. They provide cold towels and use a make shift A/C (air blown over a cooler of ice). 4 out 5 of us threw up 1/2 way through the flight. Wouldn't do this again. Will pay more for a helicopter that is air conditioned or that goes with doors off.

Breath Taking Views!
, Jul 2022
My husband and I enjoyed this one hour air tour of Kauai! Nate, our pilot, made a smooth take off and landing and had many informative things to tell us. It was bumpy and one could get airsick. So take precautions if you need! (I did, and glad I did, so I could enjoy). Enjoy!!
Was windy to bumpy, but...
