For this Hawaii Volcanoes National Park helicopter tour make your own way to the Hilo Heliport. Once you’re there, board the helicopter type you picked at checkout—either an ECO-Star or A-Star.

The ECO-Star offers a spacious interior, more than 60 square feet of viewing glass and theater-style back row seating for a better view. The A-Star features bench-style seating and 50 square feet of viewing glass. Both are flown by Blue Hawaiian's pilots and maintained by Blue Hawaiian's technicians.

Put on headphones for commentary as you go, and take flight. You’ll soar high above Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see the active volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa. Catch sight of Hawaiian waterfalls, Halemaumau Crater, and the Hamakua Coast, too.

At the end of this Hawaii helicopter flight, land back at the heliport, where you can decide what to do next during your stay in the Aloha State.
