THE MOST EPIC EXPERIENCE EVER! That’s what many of our guests say flying doors-off in a helicopter over one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The ONLY doors-off volcano experience in Hawaii!


Take a peek into one of the world's most active volcanoes. Discover what Kīlauea Volcano has left in the wake of its recent historic eruptive episode. Witness otherworldly landscapes like the incredible 8-mile river of frozen lava from Fissure 8 to the Pacific Ocean, the newest black sand beaches on earth, and enormous craters created by these recent events.

Along the way, view Mauna Loa’s vistas, the beauty of lush Puna rainforests and mesmerizing Hilo waterfalls. With no windows to look through, there is no better way for you to share amazing photos and video of your experience than flying on this doors-off tour! Our MD500 helicopters provide a more exclusive experience with only four seats available per tour.
