A full 2 hour trip that gave us the only views of the volcano and lava flows. Also spectacular views of the coast and waterfalls. Expensive but well worth it.

We booked a taxi ride independently to the airport through Laura's Taxi. Heather was a great driver with a wealth of knowledge and very personable. The helicopter ride was approximately 1-1/2 hours. We flew over old flows, over the crater where we could see some lava, down to the shore where the lava was hitting the ocean, and then back over above Parker's Ranch. Next we flew by a number of waterfalls, each more spectacular than the last, with the finale being Keyhole Falls which was just amazing. Directly after that, we flew over the wreckage of a WWII bomber that you could still see clearly on the mountainside. The pilot answered all our questions and gave us overviews of what we were seeing at all times. Definitely a highlight of our vacation! Read Less

Very expensive but well worth it. Way to see the island and things not seen by doing land tours.

Blue Hawaii Helicopters does a fabulous job. This was one of the best ship tours we have ever taken -- expensive, but worth every penny!

This tour was supposed to take us to the top of the volcano but the weather was not permitting in February. We did however take the other option to go see the cliffs, and valley's. The trip took about 45 minutes and was well worth it. We did not see whales but another group did and it made their day. You fly over the dry side of the island to the wet side. The views are spectacular and they take a video while you fly that you can purchase. I think this was the best excursion we did the entire trip. Read Less
