What you can expect
Take to the skies to discover the world's most geologically active environment from the comfort of a helicopter, gaining unparalleled bird's-eye views of lava flows, rainforests, and cascading waterfalls. As you fly over the Big Island's most dramatic scenery, a pilot shares engaging commentary about the culture and history of Hawaii.
Buckle into your industry-standard A-Star or spacious ECO-Star chopper and pull on your noise-cancelling aviation-grade headset, which opens up a clear line of communication between you and the pilot. Take off and rise high above the streets of Hilo as the landscapes of the Hawaii Island open up beneath you.
Soar over miles of lush forests as you head to witness the power of Kilauea. Once you reach the longest continuously erupting volcano in the world, marvel at the billows of smoke and steam rising from the craggy crater. In ideal conditions, you might even get to watch the glowing red lava slowly flow to meld with the waters of the Pacific. Then, fly above the verdant terrain flanking the Wailuku River, where waterfalls cascade into beautiful emerald ponds, before your return flight back to Hilo.
