We had a fun deluxe helicopter flight with Richard! The lava views were Great!! The Waterfall views were a little lacking but we mainly went to see the lava anyway! We would definitely do this again!

Pilot Mike did a great job!! We only had a small window of time to see Fissure 8, but Mike made the most of it. Clouds closed in and we couldn't see the ocean entry, so checked out some waterfalls instead.
