We had a great time. It was very informative and beautiful. The pilot took great care of us. We would live to do it again.

Great ride and aerial tour. Sadly they would not let me fly the helicopter. But the pilot was obviously experienced

We have taken several helicopter rides before and this one was the absolute BEST! Our pilot Connor was outstanding! He was so skillful and got us up closely and very safely to the volcanoes AND the valleys and coast! His narration was excellent and we learned so much about the Big Island, it’s history, and climate. We have taken trips with other helicopter companies but NONE compare to Sunshine. We felt so safe and really enjoyed ourselves. We had our 2 young grandsons aboard too and Conner made sure they didn’t miss a thing. Thank you Conner for making this such a spectacular trip that we will remember for a lifetime.

The whole experience was great starting with the staff at the heliport. The views of the volcano, water falls and valleys were great! Combine that with a nice pilot that was very knowledgeable and I’d definitely recommend this tour

We did the Big Island tour and all we could say is OMG! The views were amazing from the helicopter. 6 of us together and not one complained or missed anything the pilot pointed out. Maria, our pilot, was very knowledgeable about the island and made the whole trip just amazing! She must have answered 500 guestions from us:-)! We even got to see splashing lava! Everything about our visit was great from the moment we walked in the door to leaving the parking lot. Worth every penny!

Flying a helicopter over the Big Island was a must-do on our recent vacation to Hawaii. All the employees we met were very helpful and friendly, and our pilot, Connor, was really knowledgeable and gave us a great tour of the island. We had originally booked a trip to fly over Kilauea Crater but, unfortunately, when we got over there the clouds had rolled in and we were unable to do so. We were pretty bummed, but our pilot offered us the opportunity to fly back for a full refund, a chance to reschedule, or an abbreviated tour and partial refund. We opted for the latter option and Connor ensured we had a great experience; we saw some beautiful cliffs and scenery, and learned a lot about the island. Highly recommend this company!

We went to Hawaii to celebrate our son's high school graduation. One of the things he wanted to do most was to ride in a helicopter over the volcano. He was super happy with this experience. It took some great videos of the amazing sites. Great way to see the whole island.

The Kilaea volcano and the Jurassic Park aka Kohala coast experience were both amazing. Maria was a great pilot and tour guide.
