Paradise Helicopters is a locally owned and operated company founded in Hawai‘i in 1997. Over our years of operations in the Hawaiian Islands, we have forged many special partnerships within the communities in which we operate. These relationships allow us to offer much more than lava, rainbows, and waterfalls–we leave you with an authentic piece of Hawai‘i–the unique culture and Aloha spirit that make the islands unlike any other destination in the world.
Keith was our driver. Grateful to have had a couple hours with him. They are extremely helpful for first time flyers and make sure you're as comfortable as possible. Thanks so much. Recommend this above anything we've done in the last two weeks.
First of all, the “Volcano Kohala Landing” is a scam. There is no volcano landing. When we complained about it after landing, the owner said, “Oh yea, we talked about changing that wording”. Not only was the tour not what printed material promised, but they landed the helicopter to feed two passengers, and NOT my family of four. They never offered that option to us. To that end, the response was, “oh, that was arranged by a hotel and not through us.” Really? I have taken several other Helicopter rides, and not only was the trip a total scam, the pilot was obviously young and inexperienced. He couldn’t keep the tail strait the whole trip. DO NOT take this tour operator!
We did the doors off tour over the volcano and it was awesome! Great staff, awesome pilot and a wonderful experience! We had a weather cancellation on our originally scheduled tour day, but I’m so glad we rebooked, and they were so accommodating to help us make it happen. The pilot was very knowledgeable and told us a lot of information about the volcano and area. Overall I would do it again!
We did the circle-island tour out of Kona, and I cannot say enough about how great it was. A once in a lifetime experience, for sure! Our pilot was knowledgeable about the entire island - he knew every town, and lots of island history. If you can, I highly recommend this tour, and the company.
Amazing experience of the island! We got to see lava, dolphins, whales, the gorgeous coast and landed on a hilltop for a picnic. The friendly, experienced, and safety first staff added a level of comfort in the air.
