What a magical experience. Our pilot, Page, was a superb guide and the weather was perfect. We fly 'round the Kilauea crater, saw perfect views of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, and most spectacularly nearly kissed the 2000 foot waterfalls in an otherwise inaccessible east coast valley. A 2+ hour circling of the magnificent Big Island is the best of the many fun things we have done.

My husband and I are only in Kona for 4 days. But it’s his Birthday, so we wanted to do it up big. We booked for 4 pm. Page was our pilot and he was amazing! He took time to explain the safety precautions during COVID and then took us up. What an amazing experience and we got to see whales!

Terrific pilot, she was friendly and knowledgeable, skilled and safe.
We had a great flight and saw whales along with scoping out new surf spots and reef locations to dive.
The company owner came by to meet us when we landed, too, a nice personal touch.

Absolutely amazing doors off tour. If you’ve never rode in a helicopter before, don’t sit in the front! It was my first ride and I was scared to death and there’s nothing to hold onto. lol. If you are a thrill seeker and enjoy the feeling of free falling, the front seat is for you!! I am a big chicken. lol. Our pilot was amazing and shared a lot of information about the area and how it was formed. We also got to see a school of about 50 dolphins, which was cool.

We phoned in the morning and were booked that day. Communication was great with instructions and address texted to us. We met with Kriti who gave us our safety orientation and then were immediately in the helicopter. We booked the 2 hour tour going across the center on the island, down the east coast and back north to the valleys, around the north coast, then down the west coast back to the airport. Kriti was so enthusiastic when explaining the different formations and Hawaiian folklore, extremely knowledgeable. She also gave tour advice for the best beaches to visit which was very helpful, glad we took the helicopter tour at the beginning of our vacation. We got to fly close to the low clouds while traversing the island - awesome, see steaming calderas, go through the valley and whale watch. We saw a pod of 6 humpback whales and numerous single whales. Well worth the price.
