My first helicopter ride. Wow, what an amazing way to see the island. The weather was perfect and the views were amazing. We did get to see a little flare up of some lava on Maona Kea. Definitely an experience you should do once in your life.
paid extra ...... for window seats but the loading is based on peoples weight so not only didnt get a window seat but was sitting and facing backwards ....... after arriving we were told that they would not be doing the 2 hour trip do to weather and a 30-40 min trip was being offered or rebooked ..... paying extra was a ripe off ...
This really was a great tour. Koji, the pilot, did a fantastic job with his commentary and wonderful manoeuvres to maximise scenery and photo opportunities. I had done one other helicopter tour over another island in Hawai'i. This one was superb and probably hard to beat. Strongly recommend this!
This was amazing. Absolutely loved the flight over the island to see the changes from one side of the island to the other. Fascinating to see the lava trails, some smouldering trees and then the lush green on the other side of the island. Felt very safe with our pilot
got a little boareing going from one photo shots to the next but ride was smooth and calm
