Paradise Helicopters - Kohala Coast Waterfalls & Remote Hike

This Big Island Helicopter Tour is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Big Island Helicopter Tours page for other available tours.

This Big Island helicopter tour includes a 1 hour aerial tour and about 1 hour of time on the ground at a beautiful landing site. Departing from the Kona Airport, you'll fly with Paradise Helicopters north to the Kohala valleys. Soar above the breathtaking 2,500-foot waterfalls and cliff faces. En route, you'll see the dramatic lava fields from the 1801 Hualalai eruption and the 1859 Mauna Loa eruption. You'll also get to see the pristing white or black sand beaches, including Mahai'ula, Kiholo, Anaeho'omalu and Hapuna.

We'll then touch down at a remote location deep in the Kohala Mountains to enjoy a moderate 0.5 mile guided hike through a guava forest. The trail immerses you in the flora and fauna of Kohala and leads to a lookout point offering dramatic coastline views. All the while you will learn about the culture and diverse natural habitat of this serene location that most people never get to see.

After the hike, your helicopter tour continues to view the world-famous white and black sand beaches and resorts of the Kohala Coast en route to back to Kona.
