I loved the doors off experience! Definitely something you should consider. The helicopter ride was much smoother than I expected. The harness and seat belt made me feel very secure so I was able to get some great pictures without the doors. The company recommended you dress for 50 degree weather so we were prepared for the cooler temperatures when in the air when the breeze went right through the back seats.

Our pilot Chris was very informative and pointed out everything of interest and history of the Island. We were too awestruck to speak.

This was amazing from beginning to end!! No regrets at all. The pilot super cool, the views no way better and the experience was totally above expectations. The only thing is the pick up that we had to go to the airport directly because they couldn't pick us up at the cruise pier terminal and back.

This was by far the highlight of our time on Hawaii. The views were amazing, and the flight itself was so fun. All ages enjoyed it....put this on your list of things to do on the big island!

Fantastic!!! We loved everything about this helicopter tour. Got right up to active lava, and even got to witness a rare flow that had popped up above ground. Very knowledgeable pilot, we felt extremely safe and secure the entire time. This helicopter had 3 passengers up front, two in back. It gets very windy and chilly on this ride with the doors off, especially in the back. A light jacket and pants are a very good idea, even though you'll be sweating while you stand and wait to board. We would do this tour again for sure. Highly recommend.

Open door helicopter rides are a must-try! Matt was a knowledgeable and fun pilot. It was amazing experiencing the wind, fresh air, heat from the volcano, and no windows with glare that affect your photos. So glad I got to sit in the co-pilot seat! Only complaint was that I couldn and #39;t get enough...

Had a great time and the views were amazing. Our pilot Paul was very knowledgeable about the area and history. Flying open door is the way to go, you can feel the heat coming up from the lava flows and volcano below. Paul circled the sites from both sides of the helicopter so everyone could get a good look at what was below. Great experience and I would highly recommend this adventure.

Very easy to book tour. Staff at Paradise Helicopters were friendly and helpful, explaining what to do, especially the safety briefing. Pilot was excellent, pointing out unique spots at volcano and around Hilo. Definitely a great way to see Hawaii.

Our first flight in a helicopter and it very exciting. I didn't have a door on my side which made for great pictures and a higher pulse rate.
Everyone at Paradise Helicopters was professional and very friendly. Got to see, smell and feel the heat of the lava. Being up in a small aircraft with no door is wild enough but to be over a boiling lava pit intensifies the experience immensely. We will definitely do it again.

This was an amazing experience. The ground crew took care of everything and made sure that nothing was taken for chance regarding your safety on this open door flight. The pilot, Pete, was extremly knowledgeable of the history of the area. The views and experience from an open door helicoper cannot be fully expressed. This is the only way to fully enjoy your helicopter flight.

Was a little hesitant when we booked this but thought what a great experience. Yes, no doors. I suggest if you are adventurous, do this, it is the only way to go over the volcano. If you are scared, do not do. Glad I have done this, was a bit windy in the back so did not enjoy as much. Even though I did not take photos, because of the wind and being scared, we felt the heat from the volcano, smelt the sulphur from it as well. Rob was experienced, great pilot, great experience to be had.

Definitely one to tick off the bucket list. The most amazing experience. My granddaughters had no idea we were flying into Hilo to do this tour. The look on their faces said it all. Its something they'll remember for the rest of their lives. I've tried to post photo's but the site won't allow me too. It says access denied. Its a shame as we got some really good photos of lava etc.

This was the highlight of our trip. It is cold at the beginning heading out to the volcano but warms up once you get out there and feel the heat of the lava! Worth every penny!

Great trip. Flying directly over the lava pools and the lava hitting the ocean was the only way to really experience the volcano. Great fly-bys over the waterfalls. Truly the only way to get a good appreciation for the terrain of the Big Island.
