Totally epic experience. If you have the coin to spend on it, you must do it. Two of us in our party took the trip to cap off the vacation on the morning of January 21/15. Just a little food for thought, I recommend doing this as it is an excellent way to to add to your perspective of the... More

Just finished a 2 hour tour of The Big Island. Amazing. We saw flowing lava, craters, 1,000 foot waterfalls, a dozen whales and more. No better way to see the island. The windows on the helicopter were huge. Great tour. A must do.

We scheduled an island tour for an entire hour. It was breathtaking from the first minute to the very last. Josh was a wonderful tour guide and a fabulous pilot. I would highly recommend this tour! The memories do last a lifetime!

As a local pilot here on the Big Island of Hawai'i, I've personally flown myself and others around this beautiful 'aina of ours over the years. However on 1/6/15 I had an experience of a lifetime I'll never forget. Because of Cal Calvin Dorn, Waynette Kwon and the great 'ohana at Paradise Helicopters, I was able to see my island... More

SHORT Version: Well worth the money and so much fun for the entire family. LONG Version: This is going to be spendy (approx. $600 per person) but well worth the memories, the experience and the fun. The best part is that it's really something that all ages can enjoy. I'll talk about the flight, then I'll talk about ziplining. THE... More

We booked the Volcano by Air and Land Tour (about 11 hours, a long day, but definitely worth it), which involved two one-hour Paradise helicopter flights separated by an all-day small group (~12 people) Hawaii Forest and Trail ground tour. The transition between operators was seamless and trouble-free. We were collected from our hotel by a suicidal taxi driver (hired... More

Aloha, Thank you kindly for your thoughtful and detailed review. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time, both in the air with Paradise and on the ground with our partners Hawaii Forest & Trail. We agree that the northern waterfalls are not well publicized on this island (Hawaii Island). Given the well-founded excitement surrounding Kilauea Volcano, it is... More

Our family did the air and land volcano package. Our children, 6 y.o and 8 y.o , were thrilled with the helicopter ride, especially the intercom. The pilot commentary was great and the views spectacular. Seeing the volcano and lava from the air put our ground exploration into perspective, making it even more interesting for our children. Our land tour... More

Highlight of our trip to Hawaii. Four of us Took the extreme helicopter doors off experience ensuring we had the helicopter to ourselves. You are strapped in but when he pilot does a tight turn it feels like you have nothing between you and the ground a long way below. Our pilot Reece (a kiwi) was great taking us out... More
