From seeing the entire island of Hawaii to whales, active volcanos, coffee fields, remote villages, valleys, waterfalls, and even landing on a remote site and having lunch on top of a mountain, this is a must do experience while in Hawaii!!! Service was extremely nice. Hokey was our driver who picked us up at the Four Seasons, gave us some... More

My husband booked the Magnum experience to celebrate my 40 th birthday ... Wow, doors off!!!!!! Our pilot Josh was excellent and provided so much information during our flight. We saw Diamond Head, Dole Plantation, Pearl Harbour, Waikiki, sacred falls and so much more of the island.

We wanted the doors off. so they seated pilot and 2 in the front and two in the back. There is a small "hump" in the back coming from the ceiling, but it was fine. The pilot... More

We booked the volcano and paradise landing tour. The helicopter was very comfortable and our guide Koji was very funny and informative. We saw a crater active with lava ( an amazing thing to see in person!) whales breaching. dolphin pods, steam vents and the diverse beauty of the Big Island. We couldn't land at Paradise landing as it was... More

After checking out with many of the locals decided to go with Paradise Helicopter for a tour of the Volcano area. The pilot was very professional and helpful in describing many of the areas around the volcano. We felt very safe the whole time. Only mistake we made was not going with the doors off.

We did the no door helicopter ride. We really enjoyed it. Much better experience than with the doors on. Especially if you like to take photo. You think it would be very windy, but its not too bad. no more than being on the convertible going on the highway. We sat in the back seat which pilot said is windier,... More

What can I say but do it!!! This was incredible. My husband and I booked the Hawaii tour but due to weather we ended up getting to see the entire island, no extra charge. We had Dan as our pilot who was great. Former Army helicopter pilot in charge of safety, made me feel safe. He narrated the flight and... More

My family and I went on a 3.5ish hour tour of the Big Island in Hawaii and had a marvellous time. It was great to get such a good view of the whole Island. Seeing the volcano up close and personal was incredible and flying through the waterfall areas was amazing. Could be a bit problematic for those who get... More

We did the sunset tour with Joel as our pilot (and tour guide). It was an amazing experience, viewing geology in progress. Even had well timed musical accompaniment 😄
