Wings Over Kauai - Cessna Tour
Enjoy a Kauai air tour on board a two-passenger Cessna, a great way for couples to see all of the island’s beauty. On this 65-minute tour, you’ll get to the entire island, including top sights such as Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali Coast.
Starting in Lihue, you’ll first fly southwest to see Kipu Kai, the beach made famous in the Hollywood movie 6 Days and 7 Nights. Next up is beautiful Hanapepe Valley and the Jurassic Park waterfall. The tour then continues over the immense Waimea Canyon, also known as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”
Heading north, you’ll fly over the spectacular Na Pali Coast, often called the “jewel of Kauai.” See the hidden valleys and beaches and 3,000-foot cliffs of this otherwise inaccessible coastline. Enjoy the view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai, as well as numerous waterfalls cascading down Mt. Wai'ale'ale, the wettest spot on earth.

- The Cessna 172 Skyhawk comfortably carries 2 passengers, one in the front co-pilot seat and the other one in the back seat. The plane is equipped with an interactive communication system with noise canceling headsets that give you the opportunity to share your experience with each other and the pilot in a more private setting. Compared to Wings of Kauais larger AirVan, the Cessna offers a slightly different viewing experience similar to a Van vs. a Sports car. You can see everything, but in a different way. It offers a more intimate experience.
