Great ride around the Big Island. The pilot Greg was informative and drove us up close to waterfalls and even close enough to the ocean to see whales. Gave us an appreciation of the beauty of the Island.

My husband and I took the 2 hour Eco Star tour of the Big Island of Hawaii. Our pilot was Toshi, who was an excellent navigator, fully knowledgable about Hawaiian culture, the Big Island and of course volcanoes! Our flight was smooth, we were comfortable, safe and secure. Toshi invited us to ask questions and make comments all while taking... More

We have been on helicopter tours on every island but NONE even came close to the thrill and emotion that today's ride over the active volcano was! Our pilot Chase took us down and close to the volcano that was boiling with lava, the lava flowing inro the ocean then into the deep canyons to see the waterfalls. The music... More

A two hour tour is the best deal. I can't imagine just choosing to see the volcano or waterfalls. Both areas are magnificent. Viewing the lava flow into the ocean was an amazing sight. Seeing the keyholes and waterfalls was just as impressive as the other side of the island. The ride was smooth and the helicopter a Cadillac. If... More

We took the "Big Island Spectacular" trip, which was about 2 hours long, in the Eco Star helicopter. Starting in Waikoloa we flew to the volcano and then north along the coast before returning to base. Greg O was our pilot and explained all about what we were seeing. He even made his own mix that uniquely matched the terrain... More

We had a once in a lifetime trip - seeing whales, landing at a waterfall and viewing the rare lava firehose into the ocean. It was amazing and I recommend this tour to anyone new to visiting Hawaii. The Big Island is so diverse and beautiful and we got to see it all.
