Breathtaking. A must have experience.
, Jul 2021
The view is spectacular. To see the depth of the crater is breathtaking. No matter where you sat the pilot made sure everyone had a close view The pilot was amazing; friendly and very knowledgeable on the ecology but most of all the history lesson on Hawaii was for me the icing on the cake.

Loved this tour. Flying over volcanoes and seeing so many rainbows. Never have a seen a complete circular rainbow until this tour. The pilot and staff were awesome. I would not think twice about doing this tour again. One of the highlights of our stay on the Big Island

Great way to see the volcano. Much better from above. The pilot and crew were knowledgeable and helpful. I really enjoyed this experience.
Not worth the trouble

Received a call from the tour business direct, canceling our tour, due do to a helicopter not working. As our time on the island was short we were unable to go.
Great tour!

Had a really fun time touring the volcanos at the big island with my 3 year old son. The friendly, knowledgeable, professional staff made it a memorable and positive experience.
Great trip!

Wesley was a great pilot. They really did a great job with safety and expectations. Although we missed the lava by a few days, it was a great trip!

First helicopter and volcano tour

Interaction with the pilot Toshi and the whole experience with music and conversations on the headphone. Volcano viewing was great. All first time for us.
Volcano with a view

This tour was amazing and we learned so much about the volcano and the areas surrounding it. The tour guide, Ethan, was great and very interactive. Highly recommend!!
Well worth the time and cost

Excellent adventure! Our pilot, Ethan, was an awesome pilot and narrator. The ride was smooth, the helicopter clean, and the ground crew polite and courteous. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

Great flight, excellent pilot and the ground crew was super pleasant. Flying over the volcanos and now having a better understanding volcanos and the big island is priceless.
