This Kona Helicopter Tour is waiting to take you to see one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
The Island of Hawaii is also known as the “Big Island,” and for a good reason! Covering over 4,000 square miles, the Big Island alone is larger than all of the other islands combined. The island is made up of barren black lava fields contrasting sharply with dense rainforests, stunning sea cliffs, and waterfalls flowing from every nook and cranny. The Big Island Spectacular Kona Helicopter Tour is a flight for the ages!
This Kona helicopter tour departs from the helipad in Waikoloa, an easy drive from the popular resort area on the leeward side. From here you’ll be whisked away to the Kohala Coast, an area with vast sea cliffs and waterfalls flowing from them into the ocean. Peer down onto miles and miles of dense, rainforest covered coastlines, crystal blue waters, and stretches of pristine beaches. Fly towards the eastern side of the island for views of the famous Volcanoes National Park. Check out the Chain of Craters Road, where the lava flow poured onto the road and reclaimed mankind’s progress.
The Big Island is in constant motion, since Kilauea has been active since 1983. Watch as massive steam plumes erupt from the water, where the molten hot lava meets the ocean. The lava is cooled quickly, and new earth is born. Fly over old plantation towns, farmland, taro patches, and tiered waterfall pools flanked by rainforest. Your tour can even be scheduled with a stop at one of these amazing waterfalls! Land near Punalu’u Falls, flowing from 1200 feet up! Spend 20 minutes on the ground taking photos, and admire the landscape and this pristine sanctuary in the middle of the Pacific.
Choose between the two varying styles of helicopters offered. The standard A-star style has excellence in maneuverability and efficiency. Or choose a seat in the Eco Star, the newest, most comfortable in helicopter innovations. Featuring a larger cabin and seating area, with wraparound windows on the cockpit, the Eco-Star is the most plush touring helicopter available.
