Aloha! We've finally done it. After six years of operation and trying various tour routes, we have finally whittled it down to just one perfect tour which we consider to be the ultimate flying experience, the 65 minute Grand Deluxe Tour of Kauai!
We love this G8 AirVan, our new touring plane from Australia, and although it would seat 8 persons we really prefer to limit the number of passengers to two couples or two plus three. This keeps the tour more intimate, allowing for better communication between the pilot and the passengers, and allows everyone to have their own window with an excellent view out the right side of the plane. As all tour operators here travel the island in a clockwise manner it is important to have a view out the right side. We are the only air tour operation which guarantees this!
If you are a party of four adults you will have the plane all to yourselves, able to choose your own seats, including who sits in the co-pilot seat, and even move around a bit during the flight to optimize photo opportunities.
We love to take children up with us! We have traveled extensively in small planes with our two kids, from infancy to adulthood, and they have always loved it! Lap children, two and under, are not required to be in a seat, and there is no charge for them.
For Cruisers! We provide free ground transportation to and from the cruise ship area, it's only about 10 minutes away!
Grand Deluxe Tour
Climb aboard our new Australian made G8 AirVan for your personalized Grand Deluxe Tour of the most beautiful landscape in the world! Soar through the Waimea Canyon, then catch your breath as the majestic cathedral spires of the NaPali are suddenly beneath you. Fly alongside the ridgeline behind the lovely Hanalei Bay, and travel south to see the numerous waterfalls of Hanalei Valley as well as the crater below Kauai’s Mt. Wai`ale`ale (weather permitting). In winter months whale watching may be feasible.
Our experienced pilots will share with you the rich history and mythical lore of Kauai; you can ask numerable questions using our two-way intercom system and enjoy the feeling of good old fashioned hospitality. Only Wings Over Kauai features an expert agricultural narrative (created by our owner and chief operating pilot, the research scientist, Dr. Bruce Coulombe). At approximately 65-70 minutes, this safe, and thrilling experience, is the ultimate air tour of the Garden Island.
"It's been 5 months since our Kauai vacation, and Aliya and I are still sharing our flight experience with friends. Every once in awhile we find a service provider that does everything right -- hospitality, value, and exceptional experience. Wings Over Kauai is such a company and I posted my pictures to your website so that others who might be contemplating a helicopter air tour can see just how fantastic the views were from your plane."
