Loved this tour. Flying over volcanoes and seeing so many rainbows. Never have a seen a complete circular rainbow until this tour. The pilot and staff were awesome. I would not think twice about doing this tour again. One of the highlights of our stay on the Big Island

Wesley was a great pilot. They really did a great job with safety and expectations. Although we missed the lava by a few days, it was a great trip!

Kilauea really destroyed everything in its path. Ron gave us a wonderful view of it all........The beauty of the falls contrasted with the blackness of lava. Awesome!

We booked this tour for my family of four about 3 weeks before arriving the Bis Island. They were professional from start to finish. They reached out immediate upon booking. Directions were easy to follow and clear. They called the day before again to confirm. They are strict about all passengers wearing dark colors while on the tour as we saw them require a woman wearing yellow to buy a navy colored shirt in order to board. There is a safety briefing before you board which was helpful. . The views were spectacular of course.
