A: There's no better way to see all of the Big Island than by air on an exciting helicopter tour. With tours departing daily from Kona airport, it's easy and convenient to head up, up and away to adventure. Climb onboard and soon you'll be swooping and soaring next to the most amazing views and seeing things from a new perspective. Check out the latest lava activity, experience plunging waterfalls, explore white, black and green sand beaches, circle the crater of an active volcano or drink in a spectacular Hawaiian sunset from the air. To see Hawaii from a bird's eye view is to truly understand the beauty of the island.
