Enjoy a true Hawai‘i experience on Paradise Helicopters' premier air adventure. Explore all five volcanoes, hidden white and black sand beaches, lush waterfalls cascading down 2,500-foot valley walls, breathtaking coastlines, and 11 different climate zones. Hawai‘i is the largest of the islands, and due to activity at Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, it’s still growing. Upon departure from the Kona Airport, you will fly over the world-famous Kona coffee district and the slopes of Hualālai and Mauna Loa. Learn about the unique history, geology, and culture of Hawai'i Island through a two-way communication system that lets you ask questions and get to know your pilot. See Kīlauea, the world's most active volcano, and hunt out any current lava flows. After over 35 years of activity, discover what has been left in the wake of the recent historic eruptive episode.
Witness otherworldly landscapes like the incredible 8-mile river of frozen lava from Ahuʻailāʻau to the Pacific Ocean, the newest black sand beaches on earth, and enormous craters created by these recent events! In winter, you may see snow atop Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Then, you will head toward east Hawai‘i’s lush rainforests and the incomparable Kohala valleys. The views here are so spectacular that even our pilots, who see them on a daily basis, often say this area is their favorite hidden gem to share with visitors and guests. Rounding out your trip, you’ll enjoy a birds-eye view of iconic beaches, including Hāpuna Beach and Kua Bay, consistently voted as some of the best beaches in the world.
