Sunshine Helicopters - Volcano Deluxe

Sunshine Helicopters offers the Volcano Deluxe tour to focus on the island’s volcanoes and sights around the Hamakua Coast and Kohala Coast. The tour departs from the Hapuna Heliport.

Keep your eyes peeled for any glow from Kilauea’s lava vents, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Soar over lush tropical valleys and see the majestic Kohala Mountains. Dozens of waterfalls can be seen cascading through the mountains. Continue over the Hamakua Coast, a stark contrast to the black lava fields around the volcano, it features vast, lush rainforests.

  • Kohala Mountains
