Fly From Oahu to Hilo - Helicopter + Airfare Included!

Active Volcanoes from Land & Sea

Escape to another Hawaiian island for a day on this all-inclusive, island-hopping tour. Indulge on your vacation and leave the planning to us! Interisland roundtrip airfare from Oahu to Hilo on Hawai’i Island (locally known as the Big Island), roundtrip transportation from the Hilo Airport (ITO) and a sightseeing land tour with lunch and exciting helicopter tour is included.

Discover the source of the creation of the Hawaiian Islands at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park! Explore cascading waterfalls, craters and more on this comprehensive volcano adventure tour. Gaze at massive active volcano, Mauna Loa that erupted in 2023 and peer into the depths of Kilauea’s Halema’uma’u Crater which has remarkably doubled in size after the 2018 eruption.

Watch steam clouds form as ground water seeps onto hot volcanic rock at the famous Steam Vents and stroll through ancient lava tube Nahuku (formerly known as Thurston Lava Tube). Gaze at sweeping coastal views at Kealakomo Overlook where older lava flows melted into the ocean and take a leisurely drive down scenic Chain of Craters Road. Enjoy an included “to go” lunch in the park. Take a leisurely hike around the perimeter of Akaka Falls. 

We’ll take you to the heliport near Hilo Airport at 2:45 PM for the required 45 minute safety briefing. Your 45 minute helicopter flight is scheduled for 3:30 PM with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. After your helicopter flight, please make your way to the Hilo Airport for your return flight to Oahu.
