Paradise Helicopters - Big Island Expedition

Departing from the Kona airport, this Big Island helicopter expedition includes a landing on the other side of the island in Hilo. See the Big Island’s most stunning scenery and delve into the island’s rich history and culture. Fly over the Kona coffee district and the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa on your way to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to hunt for red, hot lava at Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano.

The tour then continues north along the island’s rugged coastline with its jagged cliffs and lava fields that give way to hundreds of waterfalls and lush vegetation. You’ll touch down in the Hilo area, from where you’ll take the complimentary ground transportation to the downtown area for a self-guided tour to the farmers market, Pacific Tsunami Museum, Lyman Museum, quirky shops and other points of interest.

At the end of your excursion your helicopter waits to take you on the second half of your Big Island air tour. Fly over the lush rainforests, the beautiful Kohala valleys and iconic beaches, including Hapuna Beach and Kua Bay.

  • 10-hour helicopter adventure, including landing and land exploration
