Finally took to the air after cancellation earlier in the week but definitely worth the early morning (0500) wake up! Pilot Devin flew us over the Big Island providing us with amazing views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes and the surrounding country. The...More

We flew with the Eco-Star to go see the volcano and land at the waterfall. Spectacular. Lava from Fissure 8 had stopped flowing the night before. We only saw a small pool inside the fissure but no massive flow. Still, a sight to behold. The...More

We had the 2 hour helicopter ride and it was amazing. We are so glad we did it. Flying over the volcano was a highlight but then going into the gorges to get up close to the massive waterfalls was just as impressive

Repeat customers from 9 years ago on Maui. This time was Big Island. Getting up close and personal with the lava from the fissures hitting the water was simply amazing. Thanks to Jeremy for a wonderful flight and tour!

The lava is still flowing vigorously out of the lower rift zone. The helicopters are not permitted to fly over the crater, but you will see lava provided the weather is good. Morning flights have a better chance at good... More
