We heard the lava was flowing into the ocean during our tour of Volcanoes National Park, and another person on our tour raved about her helicopter experience, so we decided to splurge on the Big Island helicopter tour. We were not disappointed. Scott, our pilot, was excellent. He told us so much about the island and the sights, and we were amazed at how close he brought us to the lava flows and waterfalls. He continually made sure that everyone was comfortable, made sure that everyone on both sides of the helicopter was able to get a good view, and kept the helicopter incredibly steady throughout the flight. We saw numerous rivulets of lava flowing into the ocean, and Scott was able to take us into several interior valleys in Kohala, each with absolutely breathtaking waterfalls and scenery. We decided at the very last minute to book our trip, and got the last few seats available. After coming all the way to the Big Island, it would have been a shame to miss our chance to see live lava flowing, and the incredible Kohala valleys and waterfalls--it was truly the experience of a lifetime, and worth the splurge!
