We originally scheduled for the Ring of Fire tour from Hilo but weather didn't cooperate. Disappointing but staff in Hilo were very friendly to assist in either booking another day or time or holding off - no pressure and no charges ahead of time. Rebooked the 50min North Kohala tour from Waikoloa. Super convenient to the area, literally taking off... More

It was a struggle to rise at 5 am for our 6.15 pick up but the helicopter trip with Greg as our pilot/ guide soon compensated for this. The early part of the flight was over the lava wastelands but eventually we found ourselves with amazing views of Kilauea volcano with red hot lava in the crater then the site... More

We went on the Big Island Spectacular with waterfall landing and it was totally worth the splurge! Helicopter was very comfortable, and the ride was smooth despite being a pretty windy day. Our Pilot, Jason, was funny and gave the right amount of commentary during the tour. Seeing the red moving lava from above was incredible and the waterfalls/valleys along... More

Great flight with Scott as my pilot. Smooth flight and very informative narrative. Saw some amazing parts of the big island you can only see by helicoptor. And.... we saw lava.... real live lava. Check that off the bucket list. Lol Go book a flight and enjoy.

We took the Big Island Spectacular trip around the island and to put it in a one word description "amazing". We paid up and took the Eco-star helicopter and it was worth the money. Our pilot Greg was great. He was knowledgeable and humorous. This was a memory that we will have forever. I highly recommend this.

We had booked the Island Spectacular Tour, but when we got there, they had to cancel due to weather over the volcano. They gave us the option to reschedule or just do the waterfall portion of the tour. We elected the latter. They refunded our original trip and gave us a discount on the shorter trip.
