This tour is a must do if you are in Antigua! You get a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close to an active Volcano. You also get a birds eye view of the destruction that a volcano can cause. I must admit that when I booked this tour I expected to get taken flown around Montserrat with... More

We took the trip to Montserrat - the journey there was beautiful, seeing the island of Antigua and all the stunning bays and beaches as you fly over. Arriving at Montserrat it was breathtaking going up so close to the volcano, and fascinating to see how the previous eruptions had affected the landscape, and of course devastated the local area....

Smooth online booking with email confirmation, Once we arrived the staff on the ground were friendly and helpful and got us ready to fly quickly. Our pilot - Pete - was a great pilot and tour guide telling us about the sites we were seeing with great enthusiasm. The flight itself was well worth the cost. Flying out over Antigua... More

My husband and I booked this as a treat for our two sons (aged 4 and 2.5) who love flying. We took the trip to Montserrat to look at the volcano and it was fabulous. We all loved it! The staff were all lovely (the ground staff and the pilot) and very knowledgable. It was extremely humbling seeing the volcano... More

4 of us took this trip only last thursday, we paid a total of $1000 for the trip and thought we would all get a window seat. how wrong. I was placed in the middle of the chopper and my view after having to crouch down in the middle was very limited. To the front it was a white post... More

We planned and booked the trip over the internet from the UK. When phoning to confirm we were asked if we could alter the booking to the next day - are we glad we did - the weather in Antigua was raining however when we took off we were told that the weather over Montserrat and especially the volcano was...

This trip was both emotional and exciting, to see the damage done by the volcano and realising that many people lost every thing in one foul swoop, to appreciate the awesome power of nature. Great trip, even saw turtles on the way back.

We chose to do around the island as it was the best way to see evrything and take some great pictures. The Helicopter is very comfortable and you wera a headset so you can hear and speak to pilot. My own draw back was I was sitting on the wrong side, so could not take clear pictures of the some... More

Caribbean Helicopters picked us up from Barbuda - that is the way to travel - brilliant trip back. We then went to Montserrat and flew around the volcano, and round the villages that were consumed by the eruptions. Amazing views, amazing trip - great guys at Caribbean Helicopters, very accommodating, helpful and informative on the trip about the history of... More
