Blue Hawaiian Helicopters


Join KT Sunshine as she takes to the skies with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. Aboard a top of the line copter, she glides over Hilo, Puna, and the active lava flow.

About this tour:

Start by boarding our comfortable, air conditioned aircraft and heading out towards the active volcano. Lush tropical rainforest gives way to stark black lava flows as you approach the volcano. Look for surface flows and lava entering the ocean as your pilot safely navigates his way through columns of steam and smoke rising from the volcanic landscape on the helicopter tour portion of this Hilo excursion.
