Weather was not kind to us on this flight with clouds and rain over Kilauea and the south of the island. Wade did a good job of flying around the clouds and finding holes to see through even though they were pretty small. Overall it was a good flight and Wade made sure that we saw as much as was available.

This tour was fantastic! I am very afraid of being in an airplane and this was very smooth. We were able to see so clearly where the new lava was. The pilot seemed to really enjoy his job and he made sure everyone in the plane was able to see all of the sights. My husband and I felt this tour was well worth the money.

I highly recommend taking the Cessna flight. The Big Island is so large that it has been difficult in two weeks here to feel I've fully seen it. Driving from Kona to other parts of the island takes a long time, and I was disappointed in some of the driving trips I made. After taking this 2-hour airplane ride, I feel I have seen the entire island...I even saw lava flowing from the volcano! The plane was comfortable and expertly piloted the pilot was knowledgeable and personable. The 500 foot altitude was the perfect viewpoint for looking at the ocean, the coastline, the lava fields, the desert, the black-sand beaches, the rainforest areas and waterfalls, the town of Hilo and so much more. Worth the price!

We had a great time on the tour and our pilot was very nice and informative. The seats were so comfortable you could take a nap in them, but if you did, you'd miss the scenery which went by so fast. Great tour!!!
