I am looking at booking 4 people June 22nd-- can you tell me what are the morning times available? For the Big Island Spectacular with waterfall landing on the Eco-Star. Also, do you get OUT of the helicopter at the water fall? Thank you!

We left at 7a and our helicopter was able to land at the waterfall site. This is not offered on all rides, so check. I would recommend the morning time due to how the clouds build up over the island. Exceptional trip.....
