Even though it was a little rainy during our flight, we enjoyed it very much.
I think the overcast skys actually made for better photos. There was no glare from the sun.
Everyone at Air Ventures was friendly and knowledgable. We arrived a little early and had a nice chat with the gal at the front desk before our flight.
The scenery was really spectacular. I can see why Hollywood likes to film there.
If you have never flown in a small plane and are not sure about doing so, rest assured that it is a very easy and comfortable ride.
We really enjoyed both the volcano and waterfall tour. We were able to walk through a volcano tube and saw first hand, the stark contrast between the dry volcano area and the lush rainforest.
We did also have an unexpected yet heartwarming display of the aloha spirit.
A young couple on the bus had run out of milk for their infant child and the baby was hungry and getting fussy. Harvey, our tour guide knew where there was a store kind of off the main road and pulled off so the couple could make a milk stop. Apparently there was a problem. All I could hear was the couple telling Harvey that they would just get a cab back to the destination. It seemed the couple did not want to be a bother for the rest of the tour, though I don't think anyone had thought that. Harvey then got off the bus and went in and helped with whatever was the problem. The couple was able to get milk for the baby and continue with us on the tour. I thought this was way above and beyond the call of duty. I was certainly impressed with our guide. He saved the day for the baby, mom and dad. Oh yeah! Harvey also was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He is a real gem and truly one with the aloha spirit.
