The Best Kauai Air Tours
Before you take flight, you will want to find a reputable tour company that you can trust. The team at Parrish Kauai has you covered; we have several air tour companies we are happy to recommend.
Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours
Helicopter tours are the most popular kind of air tour, and there are plenty of reputable companies to choose from on Kauai. Blue Hawaiian is the largest around; they offer air tours of Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, and Kauai. Their 45 and 50-minute tours depart the heliport adjacent to Lihue Airport and from Princeville Airport and highlight the beauty of the Garden Island.
Jack Harter Helicopters
Another highly recommended helicopter tour company is Jack Harter Helicopters. Jack Harter has been flying since 1962. They use luxury six-passenger AStar helicopters with floor-to-ceiling windows for exceptional visibility. They also utilize four-passenger Hughes 500 aircraft which are flown without doors. Regardless of the option, you choose, you are in for a beautiful and informative ride. For more helicopter tour recommendations, check out our helicopter tour blog.
If you would prefer to take in Kauai by plane, AirVentures Hawaii has you covered. They offer 65-70 minute air tours for up to two passengers in an open cockpit biplane. Feel the wind on your face as you soar from Lihue Airport past some of Kauai’s most iconic landmarks, including the Waimea Canyon, Napali Coast, Fern Grotto, and more.
Thrill-seekers may be searching for a more extreme air tour, and Skydive Kauai could be the perfect option. On this excursion, passengers experience a scenic 20-minute plane ride. Once reaching the drop zone, it is time to jump and experience the exhilaration of a 30-second freefall at 120 MPH over the coast before peacefully parachuting while taking in the stunning scenery.
