WOW!! What a great experience and an awesome company to work with. They were communicative and nice. Easy to find. Awesome and fun pilot who ensure we saw everything. If you’re the adventurous type, I highly recommend the doors off lava and rainforest flight!! The views are stunning and you’ll get amazing photos and videos!

Balázs Pintér

Incredible door-off flight over the lava fields and coasts. Very professional, safety in-mind operations, taking care of the pax from the first second on. Mahalo, many thanks for this experience!

Nancy Vargas Lozano

Even if I was scared about my first time in helicopter, the explanation before the flight and Jimmy as pilot made me feel so much more comfortable. I had hard time understanding the talk during the flight, but I guess is the lack of experience and the fact that English is not my first language.
I totally loved the views and the patience of Jimmy for everyone to have a nice look of everything!
Thank you for making of my first experience something amazing.

Trina Goetz

This tour was amazing! It was totally worth the price. Even without a current eruption happening, seeing Kilauea in all her steaming glory was incredible! And the rest of the tours waterfalls and lush Hawaiian landscape were beautiful as well. Our pilot was great! We could see our cruise ship as we landed, too 🙂

Kara Rogers

Amazing experience! The views were incredible and I would absolutely book with Paradise helicopters again- only reason we give 4/5 stars is because we wish our pilot would’ve talked more. We had no idea where we were or what we were looking at most of the time, we wish he could’ve narrated a bit more.

Brendon Anderson

Great flight with Joyce, great ground crew too. Only problem was lack of red lava… Kilauea didn’t cooperate although we had a great scenic trip with good commentary in a door’s off chopper.
