The helicopter trip from Kona to Hilo over the volcano and the lava spout into the ocean was fantastic. However the trip back in the afternoon around the north of the island past enormous cliffs and water falls was possibly even more spectacular. Our pilot Jork did a great job.
The land content was also great with a very knowledgable guide. The transition from tropical rain forest to the dry and very stark landscape surrounding the volcano caldera was a remarkable thing to experience.
Excellent full day tour. The dawn pickup from our resort was on time and the driver was delightful. The first helicopter segment gave excellent views of the volcanoes and the pilot made sure we saw the current lava flows. In Hilo the transfer to the tour van was easy and on time. The guide on the van tour of Volcanoes N.P. was extremely knowledgeable and encouraged questions. The tour covered several highlights of this huge park. The sandwich lunch was good, about as expected. Transfer to the helicopter in Hilo was easy. The second helicopter flight was truly spectacular. We spotted breaching whales in the ocean and the pilot circled at a safe height so all could see. We flew into a narrow, Jurassic Park like valley and looked up at a 2,000 foot waterfall. Again the pilot the same one who flew our morning segment was knowledgeable and informative. After we landed just before sunset in Kailua-Kona, they sent us back to our resort in a cab at no added cost to us except tip. From end to end this was a fantastic tour. Very well organized and well-executed.

This was an excellent experience. Everyone involved in the planning and execution of this trip were both professional, knowledgeable, and personable. Wonderful tour filled with learning and a great time. Would highly recommend this tour. Well worth the money.
This trip was the best part of my week on the Big Island. We were so fortunate to experience the Joel team! Our pilot Joel was so awesome, as was our ground tour guide Joel!!! The pictures we were able to take will make our memories of this special day last forever! Thank you both for such a wonderful day!
