Check-in will begin 45 minutes prior to your scheduled departure at the Kona Airport. After departure your pilot will begin the tour by flying over the iconic Kona coffee district where some of the finest coffee in the world is grown, roasted and distributed. The next stop is Volcanoes National Park where you will be able to see the current volcanic activity as well as learn from your pilot some of the history surrounding the Big Island’s most famous landmarks.
Your surroundings will get decidedly more lush as you head east to the fertile Hilo side of the Big Island. Much like the eastern side of Maui, the eastern region of the Big Island captures water high up in the mountains and free flowing streams and waterfalls give way to a lush tropical rainforest. As a child King Kamehameha played and explored in the deep valleys of Kohala, where your pilot will take you during the next part of the tour for a landing. By flying into the valleys you will be able to skip the hours of walking it usually takes to access them, and instead step out of the helicopter right into the middle of incredible scenery. Upon reboarding the helicopter your pilot will begin making their way back to the Kona airport by way of the white sand beaches and resorts of Waikoloa. Return time is expected to be 1.5 – 2 hours after departure.
