Amazing flight

We loved the canyon with the waterfalls, the Kilauea viewing and the Maunas. The different climates were amazing and our pilot made it very interesting.

Most memorable? Hard to choose. Certainly circling Kilauea Iki deep, steaming crater and towering waterfalls in sheer-walled "Keyhole" canyon. Dramatic, informative, best helo flight ever taken. Spectacular even without flowing lava.

Valley is most beautiful and volcano ‘S destruction is most mother-natures creation. No matter how much money man can have still can’t achieve Mother Nature’s creation. Enjoyed the ride

The helicopter ride was a wonderful experience. Our pilot Conner was very informative about the island. He made us feel safe throughout our ride. I would highly recommend going at the beginning of your stay so you can appreciate the beauty of the island. Seeing it from air is a wonderful experience.
