Awesome way to get as close as possible to the active volcano Po'o U'u. Our pilot Rhys was very engaging, narrating a lot of info about Hilo, the falls and the volcanoes. I just wish it were a longer tour! I actually thought that flying over the water was included but sadly, it wasn't. But it was awesome nonetheless! I'd totally do a tour with them again, but this time, the 2hr one :)

I booked this for my husband, my father, and myself. We went doors off. It was an experience of a lifetime. Our tour guide was great and customer service very friendly. Out guide would bank the helicopter both ways so that both sides could get the view. Would go again in a heart beat.

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary, doors off the helicopter so nothing to block view. It was amazing! The entire staff was great, especially the pilot.

Fantastic!!! We flew with the doors off and were able to see so much more plus makes for a more exciting flight.. Great pilot. Joyce gave lots of information on what we were seeing, made sure we had ample time for pictures at the right angles. Highly recommend this adventure. Truly a 5.

This was amazing. We had the doors off which added to the whole atmosphere. The pilot was excellent and took us over the lava turning the helicopter and somehow tilting it sideways so we could get better views and camera shots. The whole trip was very informative and we saw the volcano and waterfalls. The trip lasted about 1 hour and we enjoyed every minute of it. We will certainly be taking this tour again.

A very professional team, providing explicit instructions on what to do and what to expect. The pilot was exceptionally friendly and informative, providing us constantly with facts on what we were flying over. All positions in the helicopter were afforded equal viewing of the sights, including where the lava flow entered the ocean. A not to be missed experience.

Our lady pilot explained everything very well and made sure everyone had a chance to see the lava flow and waterfalls from both sides of the helicopter. She even went by the cruise ship so that we could get some aerial shots of it.
A great experience!

Loved the music on board, the commentary was wonderful. Randy was laughing hysterically most of the time because he was having so much fun. Your people are all charming and considerate. Your desk guy even drew us a map to get to Saddle Road at the end of the tour. Nothing but good, professional work by all involved. We were well cared for from start to finish. The flight itself was AMAZING. Thank you!

Marco was a wonderful pilot and gave us a wonderful view on all sides of the helicopter. I was nervous about the helicopter ride, but he soon set me at ease and it was a wonderful experience. Can't wait to go again! Wanda Dodge

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!!

This was an excellent tour. The pilot and other crew members were knowledgable and concerned with giving the passengers a positive experience.

Our only criticism was that the seating diagrams for the helicopter need to be updated and explained better.

Once in a lifetime experience. We were able to see lava flowing from the volcano from the crack on top of the rocks and into the ocean. It was beautiful and scary at the same time.

I was nervous about the helicopter ride but within seconds I thought it was incredible and I was not at all nervous during the entire ride. Our pilot was very informative and friendly. I would do it again sometime when the volcano is more active.
