What You Can Expect
A flight over Montserrat offers a very rare opportunity to witness an active volcano from a safe distance. After laying dormant for over half a century, the Soufriere Hills Volcano rumbled to life in 1995 and has been active ever since. Activity increased in 1997, with huge eruptions of lava, rocks and ash changing the face of Montserrat forever. Entire villages were engulfed by pyroclastic flows, and the southern half of the island was evacuated and is still considered an exclusion zone today.
Antigua is just 13 miles across but has many coves and bays, and 365 white sand beaches - one for every day of the year! The island has warm, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbors, and a protective, nearly unbroken wall of coral reef. Seeing Antigua from a helicopter is a beautiful sight, one not easily forgotten.
Please note: All passenger's weights must be advised at the time of booking.
Excellent trip. Caribbean Helicopters staff are all very friendly and welcoming. Well worth the $80 (US) taxi ride from St James!
