My daughter and I did the “doors off” version. Doors off was her idea. Seeing what the new lava flows left was an amazing sight. Waterfalls a bonus. Flight itself was worth the cost. Pilot Charlie knowlege and skill obvious- one hard turn and dive was awesome. Great photos with no glass in the way. Highly recommend Paradise.

This was a great trip. The pilot was very informative and made sure to tell us well in advance that he was turning which really helped me keep my motion sickness under control. Beautiful views it was an Excellent way to see the volcanoes & waterfalls. I would highly recommend this to anybody and everybody.

My wife and I enjoyed the most amazing 'doors off' flight over the lava fields especially banking over and looking straight down into the volcano and seeing the lake of molten lava (you can feel the heat). The staff at Paradise were all so friendly and helpful, thanks to Chris - our pilot!

Excellent way to see the volcanoes & waterfalls. JOEL our pilot went out of his way to accommodate all passengers. The view of active lava flow & full flowing waterfalls were awesome and inspiring. Well done team "Circle of Fire" what a magnificent adventure for us all.
