This helicopter flight was brilliant! These flights only take 4 passengers, ensuring everyone gets a great view, and you see so much of the coastline, and bubbling pools of lava from above that you could never see on foot.
It was overcast and misty when we flew, and initially I was disappointed, but it acctually assisted in seeing the vibrancy of the lava, and we used the mist as our ceiling, and got some great photos.
Going over farmland and the Rainbow Falls was a nice end to the tour, and our pilot was great, giving us insights here and there about the various sites.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see more of the Hilo end of the Big Island, truly fantastic!!
