Was a long day, but a great way to see the Island. The guide was super knowledgeable, friendly and inspired us with not only stories about the Island but the wider Pacific and Polynesian culture.
Amazing flight. We had the doors off and while there was no big eruptions during our time, you could certainly feel the heat of the volcano below. We flew really close to the crater and you could see the hot lava bubbling. Our pilot flew over the old lava flows going down the mountain into the ocean. All the activity that has happened in the past was amazing to see it all first hand and from above was awesome. We flew over the waterfalls on our way back to the helipad. Fantastic experience that we would not get to have in New Zealand. Recommend to all. Great 45 minutes of our holiday. Doors off a must, well worth it.
Fantastic! Our pilot Keith was an absolute professional ....made sure we got to see everything. Thrill of a lifetime!
Wonderful pilot who told us a lot of facts and history about the volcanoes that he flew us over.
Wow! would strongly recommend doing this. The trip was very well organised and our pilot was very knowledgeable and clearly loves his job. Fantastic view of the lava in the crater and we were lucky enough to see lava on the surface and going into the ocean. The waterfalls was an added bonus.
Great adventure! Took my 87 year-old father and they were very accommodating with his physical limitations.
We took a four passenger helicopter tour and flew over coffee farms, waterfalls, active volcano craters, and saw the lava flow into the ocean. Our pilot pointed out everything and really took us low. The cascading waterfalls from the air was really awesome.
Great trip loved flying over the volcano the best way to see it, the pilot was very good with commentary and circled several times so we all got a great views of the crater and the lava flowing into the sea, the views of the water falls was OK but not spectacular
An absolutely marvellous, unforgettable experience. Great pilot, great helicopter and unbelievable views. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to see the volcano and the exit of the lava to the ocean.
I liked the smaller helicopters because one can zoom around like a sports car. Also, each side can have doors off, so opportunity for great pictures and actually feel the heat from the volcanos. We went to several Viatar excursions this trip and the helicopter ride was definitely the best.
This was an amazing trip! The pilot flew us over Kīlauea and to areas of active lava flow, which made for great pictures! He also took us down to where the lava met the ocean. He told us about the volcano and the many eruptions that have occurred. He was very knowledgeable. Next, he took us to fly over the Rainbow Falls, which was really pretty. In all locations, the pilot made sure that both sides of the helicopter got to see the sites. The only caution I would give is, if you get air sick, make sure you let the pilot know. The corkscrew turns to get pictures of the sites can make you pretty sick. But I wouldn't let that stop you from taking the trip!
Great tour and easy to find the helicopter check in at the airport.
Everything was great! Check in was smooth, staff were very friendly and helpful, safety presentation was very good. Flight and pilot were great, just wish it was longer. Loved the music playing during our flight!
We had Shawn as a very experienced pilot. So we saw the waterfalls as the volcano very close. The same with the coastline and part of the island around Hilo. Anytime again.
Such a great tour. Sean was our pilot. He had so much info about the island. We saw lava flowing and amazing waterfalls. Company was easy to communicate with beforehand as well.
Can be cancelled due to rain. Fortunately, we got a break ingredients the weather. Views were beautiful and the pilot was very knowledgeable.
Loved it!!! Super great and friendly staff. Pilot Sean was great. It was awesome to see the orange glow and flowing lava I couldn and #39;t see at anywhere else!!
We had a wonderful helicopter ride over the volcanoes and waterfalls. Ryan was awesome. When we took off he told us we were in for a beautiful surprise and he was not kidding. Two new vents had opened that morning and we were treated to beautiful lava flowing down the volcano. Even if we had not seen that the trip was well worth it. From booking to flying the staff was pleasant and easy to have fun with. Highly recommend this excursion. Next we will go with doors off.
The pilot was GREAT. First helicopter flight for my WIFE. She's HOOKED, Loved it
Really exciting excursion you could actually feel the heat of the lava the pilot got so close. Loved the accompanying music as well!
