Highlight of the trip!

2017/10/30 Couples Tracy O.

The helicopter ride was amazing! We took the Circle Island tour. Colin was our pilot and he was really informative and made it a really fun experience.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this activity to anyone.

Best Way to See the Island

2017/08/13 Couples Shannon

My husband and I loved this experience! It allowed us to see the other side of the island, which we would not have seen otherwise, and we got the best views of the volcano!

I highly recommend this excursion with Cir...

FAQ

Q. What kind of helicopter will be used?
A. The Bell Jet 407 is a 6-passenger aircraft and it has the fastest cruise speed of any helicopter on the islands and offers unsurpassed comfort and a virtually vibration-free ride. Its oversized sliding windows offer great picture taking views and it is capable of flying non-stop around the entire Big Island, giving you as much time in the air as time permits.
Q. Do I need a group to book, or can I book just myself?
A. Of course! If the date and time you select at checkout has open seats, you'll be booked to join a flight with other adventurers!
Q. What happens if the flight is cancelled due to weather?
A. If your flight is cancelled due to inclement weather or other unforeseeable circumstances, the tour provider will notify us of the cancellation and you will receive a full refund to your credit card.
