Great! 4/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Buckle in to your industry-standard A-Star or spacious ECO-Star chopper, and pull on your headset. Much more than in-flight earmuffs, this aviation-grade, noise-canceling headset opens up a clear line of communication between you and the pilot.

Soar over miles of lush forests as you head to witness the power of Kilauea. Once you reach the longest running volcanic eruption in the world, marvel at the constant smoke and steam rising from the craggy crater. In ideal conditions, watch the active lava slowly flow to meld with the waters of the Pacific.

Then fly above the verdant landscape of the Wailuku River, where waterfalls cascade into beautiful emerald ponds, before your return flight back to Hilo.
