SEE THE UNTOUCHED BEAUTY OF KOHALA VALLEY
The only way to grasp some of the truly extraordinary scenery on the Kona side of the Big Island is from a helicopter. This narrated helicopter tour will take you deep into Kohala Valley to observe massive 2500’ waterfalls and steep cliff faces. There is no shortage of photo opportunities along the Kohala coast as you will fly over the lava field left in the wake of the 1859 Mauna Loa eruption, along with the numerous white and black sand beaches that dot the shoreline. What sets this interactive tour apart from others is the mid-flight landing and short hike through a guava forest to an incredible lookout point.

Departure will be from the Kona Airport. Be sure to arrive 45 minutes prior to departure to check-in. The helicopter will lift off from the Kona Airport and fly along the Kohala coast to give guests a chance to see waterfalls cascading into the ocean, gigantic sea cliffs, and pristine white and black sand beaches. On the way to Kohala Valley, your pilot will also take you directly over the lava fields that remain after the Hualalai eruption of 1801 and the Mauna Loa eruption of 1859. The Kohala Coast and Kohala Valley are as breathtaking as they are rugged, and this narrated tour will educate guests on the history of the area as well as what makes it so significant to the Hawaiian people.
Midway through the tour, your pilot will land the helicopter in a remote location within the Kohala Mountains so you can stretch your legs and embark on a short, guided, .5-mile hike through a guava forest to an amazing lookout point. After the hike, the helicopter will again take to the air to give guests a chance to see even more of this serene and untouched natural environment. Return time to the Kona Airport is expected to be 2 hours after departure.
