We were there in February and the weather was not that good but we had a great flight to see the volcanoes and the waterfalls. It was wonderful and our pilot showed us really everything we wanted to see. Doors off is a great expierence.

Aloha 887rene, Mahalo for your review and taking the time to provide your feedback. Weather can certainly be frustrating as it's ever changing and often unpredictable. We are stoked that you were able to get on a flight and see parts of Hawaii that can only be seen from the air. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Hawaii and hope to fly you again! Mahalo, Paradise Ohana

Just want to say weather was an issue for us flying out of Hilo. Customer service was excellent as they had to tell us our trip was canceled just minutes before departure. They worked around our schedule - on several phone calls - to accommodate the three of us. Best to

Joyce was our excellent pilot. We had a private two person trip in a fast and highly maneuverable helicopter. No amount of foot trail hiking is going to give you the, doors off, views that Joyce provided for us! I recommend buying / bringing one of their light sweatshirts to

Aloha Victoria, Mahalo for your review! We're thrilled to hear that you had a great experience from the moment you got here until completion of your tour. Seeing the Big Island from the air always makes for an unforgettable experience. The Hilo terrain is gorgeous in every form whether it's just rained and full of waterfalls or if it's a crystal clear day, it's undoubtably a must-see in Hawai'i. We hope to see you again on your next trip to Hawai'i! Mahalo nui loa, Paradise Helicopters Ohana
