    Going no-doors is unforgettable! Feeling the heat of lava isn’t something you do every day. Plus, this tour was about so much more than the volcano. The views we got were spectacular. The pilot made sure everyone got to see the same things from several perspectives. We saw macadamia farms, Hilo’s harbor, Rainbow Falls, the Kilauea Volcano (we were fortunate to see molten lava streams – it was incredible to watch the lava flow into the ocean. It is unpredictable to know in advance what the flows will look like on any given day).

    It is cold up in the Hilo skies, so definitely wear long pants, socks, and a long-sleeve jacket!

    The pilot was great! Not all tours spot flowing lava, but our pilot found what lava was flowing and gave us a great experience.

    This tour is totally amazing – a must see for anyone visiting Hilo. The doors off opens up some incredible opportunities…aerial photos of lava, plus feeling the heat of an active volcano. If you’re debating taking this tour, take it! You won’t regret it.
