We were down to our last 2 days of our 8 on the Big Island, and had not yet made a decision as to whether we would fork out the money to go for a helicopter ride (being the "frugal type" that we are). I gave Safari a call Sunday morning and asked if there was any chance of getting in that day. They did have another ride available, and for what we considered not too much more, were given the "first class" seats.....the up front seats, as opposed to the back seats. This was so very worth the extra money, and this was just the most amazing flight! There was a fair amount of "vog" in the air by the time our flight took off (it had been very clear in the morning), but it was still just incredible! Richard was our pilot, giving a very informative and at times humorous, narration of the part of the island we flew over. Our recommendation for anyone, even you (including us) cheapskates out there, DO THIS!! This was the highlight of our trip!
