Overview Overview

You will fly over Kīlauea, the most active volcano on earth.  However, the windward side also catches enough rain to make Hilo the wettest city in the United States. All this water fills tunnels that once flowed with lava, creating incredible rivers, pools and waterfalls all over East Hawai’i. Hilo’s lush rain forests, Mauna Loa’s vistas and the plunging Wai‘ānuenue (Rainbow Falls), so named for the rainbows you can see in the mist when the early morning sunshine hits the water.
For a guaranteed window seat, make sure to upgrade to the preferred seating option.

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.

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.

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!

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.
