The Deluxe Volcano/Coast Safari Helicopter tour takes you to over the vent of the Kilauea Volcano System to view the volcanic activity. This may include lava 'skylights' and lava steaming directly into the ocean. The tour continues over the homes that were in the path of the latest lava flow, over the Lava Tree Forest, above the inland waterfalls and past the Hilo bay front. It's like being on a magic carpet ride over this beautiful, geologically fascinating, tropical island.
