Big Island Helicopter Tours

If you had a magic carpet, would you bring it with you to the Big Island? Of course you would! Who wouldn’t want to be able to dive into and hover over the remote slopes and valleys of The Orchid Isle, or soar like a bird over the fiery active lava flows of Kīlauea Volcano? Well, your magic carpet awaits you on the Big Island, as you climb aboard a Big Island helicopter and leave the ordinary behind.

Photo Opportunities of a Lifetime

Most of the Big Island is inaccessible by foot or land vehicle, so the absolute best way is to experience the island is through Big Island helicopter tours. Get a bird’s-eye-view of red-hot lava streams pouring from Pu’u Oʻo Vent, explore by Mauna Kea’s towering heights, and hover amidst multitudes of 2,000-foot high waterfalls in the remote Waipi‘o and Waimanu Valleys. There are many more spectacular sights you will experience on your magic carpet ride, but we don’t want to ruin the surprise!
