The rugged and remote beauty of Kauai is best seen from above with an Air Ventures Hawaii Entire Island Tour also known as The Big Kahuna. Several of Kauai’s most scenic locations are totally inaccessible by a vehicle, so to entirely see the “Garden Isle” you have to go “up” off the beaten path! The Kauai tour sites on this flight route include Captain Cooks Landing in Old Waimea town, breathtaking Napali Coastline, the gorgeous Waimea Valley, Lumahai Beach (where the movie South Pacific was filmed), Kilauea Lighthouse (the largest frigate bird sanctuary), Hanalei Valley (home to multiple waterfalls), Eucalyptus Tunnel of Trees, Menehune fish pond, Waita Reservoir (largest reservoir on the island), cascading waterfalls, and miles of beaches and beautiful coastlines. Air Ventures Hawaii Entire Island Tour seats all six passengers by a window. Join us for a Big Kahuna Sightseeing Air Tour with Buzz Hawaii and save.
