Blue Hawaiian Helicopters - Pele's Creation (from Hilo)

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.

Depart from the Hilo Airport and head out to the site of the world's largest active volcano. Dormant since 1984, Mauna Loa began erupting fountains of glowing rock and lava in November 2022. See the magnitude of Pele, the Hawaiian volcano deity with the latest fissure openings and lava flows.

Embark on a breathtaking adventure seeking out the island's unique and newly formed landscapes. Get your camera ready as you come upon Kilauea's Iki Crater and Hale Ma'uma'u Volcano Crater. As one of the most active volcanoes on earth and considered to still be active, view several steam vents and the ever-changing landscape.

Next, as weather permits, the tour continues over to Mauna Loa. Mauna Loa has historically been considered the largest volcano on earth, sitting over 13,000 feet above sea level with its base going 5 miles into the ocean floor. This enormous volcano covers half of the Big Island. View the remnants of the last eruption which occurred in November 2022.
