best helicopter tours in Volcano

We are first timers on the Big Island. Because the national parks might be closed we were told to take a helicopter trip so we can see some of the lava flow and the surrounding area. We were wondering if there are some non-biased reviews and suggestions of who to use. Blue Hawaii seems to be a big operation. Anyone have any ideas. Also some other things to do if we can't get into the park.

thanks, ahead of time

1. Re: best helicopter tours in Volcano

We've used Blue Hawaiian on Kauai and Maui, and would recommend them based on our experiences with them, but didn't do a heli tour on the BI, so can't comment on their tour there. If you do use them, I would highly recommending splurging for the EcoStar helicopter vs. the A-Star.

Are you going to be staying on both the west and east sides of the island? How long is your stay (if you are splitting your stay, how long in each location?) That information will help with suggestions on what to do.
