Required items to bring & attire

  • A valid government-issued photo ID

  • In the event that your pilot needs to cancel for safety due to weather, your flight will be rescheduled. If a reschedule is not possible, you will receive a full refund.
  • If you are prone to motion sickness, take motion sickness preventatives before you fly.
  • Flights are highly dependent upon the following :
    1. Volcanic activity
    2. The weather
    3. Federal flight restrictions in place

    All of these vary from day to day and even hour to hour.
  • Please Note: We are unable to guarantee that you will see "red" lava on your flight.

    Rest assured that our pilots will do their best to deliver to you the safest and best viewing experience possible on all of our tours.

FAQ

Q. Is giving a tip (gratuity) required?
A. Gratuity is never required, but if you enjoyed your experience a tip is always greatly appreciated!
Q. How far in advance should I book this activity?
A. 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.
Q. What kind of helicopter will be used?
A. The Hughes 500 is a 4-passenger aircraft offering a more personalized flight. Because there are only four seats, all passengers are able to sit near a window. Known as the "Magnum P.I." helicopter, its quick maneuverability and smooth ride produces an exciting helicopter experience.
Q. Are lava sightings guaranteed?
A. 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.
