Amazing views of the mountains, waterfalls, shoreline, volcanoes, and the whole Big Island! We enjoyed the ride with our wonderful pilot Greg. Awesome experience and will recommend this adventure to everyone! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see active lava flowing, maybe next time 😂😂😂

Highlight of our trip!
, Dec 2019
My husband was a bit skeptical about going up in a helicopter but I was adamant and he agreed to do it. Now he can't stop talking about how spectacular it was! It truly was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii, and that's saying a lot because we saw a lot! We bought the video so we could re-live it over and over. A big thanks to Shane who was an awesome pilot and guide. He made us feel so comfortable! I highly recommend this excursion!
