Explore the Waterfalls of the Big Island on a Helicopter Tour!
The Big Island is home to some of the most stunning waterfalls in all of Hawaii. Upon departing from Kona International Airport, we whisk you away to explore the seven windward valleys of Kohala.
Our first stop is the windward side of the Kohala Mountains, where we fly along the coastline of Waipio Valley and then move westward to Waimanu Valley. Waimanu can experience annual rainfall of up to 200 inches, fueling over 1500-foot waterfalls, some of the tallest in all of Hawaii.
Following the valleys west, we fly over Honopue, Honokea, Honokane Iki, the historic valley of Honokane Nui or Big Valley, and Pololu Valley. We climb and cross over the summit of Kohala, the oldest of the five volcanoes that make up the Big Island of Hawaii.
Your tour ends with a beautiful coastline flight over sparkling ocean waters, ancient lava flows, and the spectacular luxury resorts that make their homes on the island’s leeward shore.
