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.

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.
2.5 hours of awesome waterfalls, lava flows, beaches, and sunsets!
