Change your perspective. See the Big Island from above.

This quiet and comfortable helicopter with panoramic windows for maximum viewing area and two-way communications with your experienced pilot all make for a truly memorable tour. Viewing the Big Island from the air provides a perspective not available with any land tour.

As your helicopter lifts off, you'll feel like a bird in flight. Soaring high above this magnificent island, its features come into view...dramatic sea cliffs, rugged green mountains, deep forested valleys, and cascading waterfalls. Many consider the places seen on this tour to have the most spectacular scenery on the Big Island.

Your experienced pilot, who is also a State of Hawaii Certified Tour Guide, will not only take you up, up, up but also up-close to get once-in-a-lifetime views of powerful waterfalls, cascading to the rainforest below. During your flight of approximately 50 minutes, you'll venture into green valleys, admire the glistening ocean and see remnants of ancient settlements.
