Experience panoramic views of the Big Island's natural landscape. Soar over Kilauea Crater & land at the base of a stunning 1200' tall waterfall.
Fly the entire length of the Big Island's northeast coast, taking off from Waikoloa. Explore the Kohala Coast with its massive sea cliffs, the beautiful Waipio Valley, green Hamakua Coast & towering Mauna Kea. Then fly over Volcanoes National Park, providing an excellent view of the still-active Kilauea Crater & the Chain of Craters Road before heading north. Your last stop on this phenomenal aerial tour is a waterfall 1,200 feet high, where you will land for a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity. This helicopter tour is a jaw-dropping way to see the best of the Big Island!
