Air Ventures Hawaii - Kauai Entire Island Tour - The Big Kahuna
Enjoy a spectacular airplane tour of the entire island of Kauai! The Big Kahuna is Air Ventures' most popular tour and for good reason. You'll get to see all of the Garden Island's most beautiful sights, beginning in the south with the ancient Menehune fishpond. Then soar over the scenic eucalyptus Tunnel of Trees, the Waita Reservoir (largest reservoir on the the island) and Captain Cook's landing in old Waimea town.
Continuing on, you'll fly over Waimea Canyon (known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific"), the majestic Na Pali Coast, Lumahai Beach (where the movie South Pacific was filmed) and Hanalei Valley with its multiple waterfalls. Towards the east is Kilauea Lighthouse, a large frigate bird sanctuary. The tour then continues down the east side with more waterfalls on the way back to Lihue Airport.
