Incredible way to see the Island that most people never get to experience. Worth the price if it is a once in a lifetime trip. Worth paying ahed for premium seating I got Copilot seat which is best in the trip. Book early and reserve this seat if you can.

Our pilot Darien was great, and the island tour was amazing. It’s not cheap, but you see sights you can’t see any other way. Coastline, plantations, old lava flows, volcanoes with lava flowing, waterfalls so much to appreciate the island. Great job Paradise Helicopters and Darien you made our special celebration perfect. The photos don’t do it justice but they look great, thanks again.

Great views of the island and areas not normally accessible. Very good guidance from the pilot. Would recommend.

Once in a lifetime experience! Best activity you can possibly do. Rick, Mike and pilot Darren were the friendliest and most professional you could hope for. Amazing views from over the volcano to almost touching the waterfalls. Best time of any vacation anywhere! Karen, Chris and Kaprix from NM.

Professional and informative along with great comms before and during tour. Totally safe and amazing views of a beautiful island including the volcano and valkies that land level don't afford. Witty playlist that compliments the sites too.

We had a group of 5 for a helicopter tour on 4/25. From the moment we walked into the check in office, we were cheerfully greeted by Cory and the other two members of the welcome crew. We felt confident after the safety briefing and tour overview with the team and the pilot, Page. We had a spectacularly detailed, hour-long tour on the helicopter where all of our questions were answered. The waterfalls were gorgeous and flowing and our pilot was so knowledgeable. I couldn’t recommend this tour more- it was the highlight of our stay in Kona. If/when we come back we’ll definitely book another tour! Thanks for the adventure!

Lava, waterfalls, valley and coast. This was an unbelievable experience. Our pilot, Ryan, was a wealth of information and a lot of fun. This was a great trip to take on our first full day on the island. It gives you the lay of the land and you can plan hikes and beaches and snorkeling based on what you see from above. All ages in our family loved this experience.

An amazing way to see Hawaii from above. We had seen a lot of the sites on land (and sea), but this was the perfect way to finish our vacation. Another one checked off the bucket list.

I highly recommend taking the time to book a helicopter tour with Paradise Helicopter and ask for Matt. We were able to see the waterfalls and even drive over the volcano! I usually get air sick but Matt is such an amazing pilot and it never bothered me.

Experience of a lifetime. Matt was superb. What a nice day. We were able to see erupting volcano & plane crash.
