Make your way to the airport, located at 2450 Kekuanaoa St in Hilo, at least 45 minutes before your booked departure time. Multiple departure times throughout the day are available to fit your schedule.
Climb in to the Hughes 500 helicopter with your FAA-certified captain and guide, buckle in, and put on your 2-way radio headset. Make sure to upgrade to a guaranteed window sea when booking for the best possible views.
Take off and fly over the island's waterfalls and volcanoes, including one of the world's most active volcanoes, Kilauea. As you fly over the Wailuku River, see a series of waterfalls cascading in to jewel-toned pools. Your captain will narrate then entire 45-minute ride, and the 2-way headsets enable you to ask questions.
Land back at the airport after 45 minutes.
