What an amazing flight!!! The thought of flying over a live volcano and to see the red lava was a bucket list item for both of us. The bonus to the flight is the views of waterfalls on Maui, that you can only see from air or sea. This is a must excursion when visiting Hawaii. They conveniently have pickups... More

I went back and forth about taking a plane tour while on Maui. The locals were buzzing about the red lava flow on the Big Island and many of them were taking off to see it for themselves. Apparently it's not often that the red lava is visible. There are many ways to get to the Big Island to get... More

It is something to see. It was 85 down by the ocean and when we went up there the temp was 55. Take a sweater if you plan to head up there.

We took this tour and we're pleased to sit on comfortable wide seats. We started at West Maui airport and had headsets to hear the pilot talk about what we were seeing. The tour route was as follows: north Maui, Pa'ia, Hana, cross the channel to Hawaii, east side waterfalls, eucalyptus forests, Hilo, lava flows, right over the volcano, west... More

We were staying on Maui and took the Royal Pacific Air tour which took us over to the Big Island. So we got to see another island and the activity at Kilauea. It was a nice 2+ hours tour. Beautiful to see the islands from the air! Really enjoyed it! Note of caution: if you suffer from motion sickness, be... More

Trip was canceled on the first week due to technical difficulty of the plane (which leads us to believe there might be something wrong with the plane for our trip) and was rescheduled to the last day of our vacation. Which was really inconvenient for us. On the date of the tour the pilot was 20minutes late for the check... More

Bill, the captain looked after us well and made sure everyone had a good view of all the sights to be seen on the way to Hawaii (Big Island). The weather on the day was pretty good and we circled a few times around Pu'u'O'o, an active volcano and saw the lava flowing red hot! Unfortunately it was a bit... More
