Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your tour vehicle for the brief transfer to the airport and your helicopter over-flight.

Soar south from Hilo to the lava fields and craters of Kilauea Volcano, one of the five shield volcanoes that form the Big Island. Today, Kilauea remains one of the most active volcanoes in the world - it is the longest continuously erupting volcano on the planet. During your flight, watch the Hawaiian rainforest give way to black basalt formations created by millennia of eruptions and look for surface activity. Little wonder that native Hawaiians considered the mountain the home of Pele, Goddess of Fire. Following your volcano over-flight, head north and cruise over Hilo. Enjoy sweeping views of the Big Island's tropical rainforests, valleys and waterfalls.

After landing back in Hilo, head off to explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This fully narrated adventure with your park ranger-trained guide reveals the highlights of the park including its active volcanic craters,sulfur banks and steam vents. Enjoy a Hawaiian-style BBQ lunch at the Volcano Winery with wine and tea tasting.

Return to your tour vehicle and the drive back to the ship.

Special Notes:

Wear comfortable closed-toe shoes, clothes suited to the day's weather conditions. If the flight portion of the tour is cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions the land portion of the tour will be completed and a partial refund will be given. Tour order may vary. Children 7 years and under require a car seat per Hawaii state law. The tour operator can supply a child safety or booster seat at no charge with advance notice to the onboard Tour Desk. For the flight portion, carry-on items are limited to sunglasses, a camera outside of its case and cellphones on airplane mode. iPads, notebooks, tablets and extendable go pro sticks are not permitted. Oxygen devices of any type are not allowed.

Weight surcharge ($179.95) may apply on this flight. Due to weight and balance limitations, as well as passenger safety and comfort, the helicopter companies have advised that guests weighing 260 lbs. or more (fully clothed) will be assessed the weight surcharge to reserve adequate space onboard the helicopter. Passengers weighing 250 lbs. or more should reserve an extra surcharge ticket and, once onboard, contact the Tour Office and your account will be adjusted to reflect the cost of the surcharge only.

Helicopter excursions are not refundable unless cancelled by 12:00pm on the day after embarkation.
