It was awesome, coming close to the boiling cauldron of lava and seeing it up close and personal, while remaining safe. The rest of the tour was great, also.

Best thing we did in Hawaii!!

FAQ

What is the difference between the First Class (Co-Pilot Seat) and Open Seating
Open Seating offers raised seats and unobstructed views while Preferred Seating is our most popular option. This First Class experience includes sitting next to the pilot, extra arm and leg room, and no one in front of you to obstruct your views of the island!
Is giving a tip (gratuity) required?
Gratuity is never required, but if you enjoyed your experience a tip is always greatly appreciated!
How far in advance should I book this activity?
We recommend booking at least 1-2 weeks in advance. If you have very specific schedule requirements and are not flexible, please book sooner. Last minute availability is often possible, but limited.
What kind of helicopter will be used?
The Bell Jet 407 is a six-passenger aircraft known for having the fastest cruising speed of any helicopter on the islands, offering unsurpassed comfort and a virtually vibration-free ride. Its over-sized windows are great for picture taking, and its large fuel capacity allows for extended, non-stop flights.
Are lava sightings guaranteed?
Although your pilot will make every effort to find active lava flows during your helicopter tour, volcanic activity is an unpredictable natural phenomena and cannot be guaranteed. Nevertheless, Kilauea is the most active volcano in the world, so the chances of seeing red-hot emerging lava are high.
