Big Island: Hawaii helicopter tour
The Hawaiian Archipelago is made up of a string of eighteen islands and atolls that spans 1,500 miles in the North Pacific Ocean. Eight of the largest of these land masses, all at the southeastern end of the archipelago, are considered to be the "main islands": Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui and the Big Island, Hawaii. Helicopter tour routes through Blue Hawaiian Helicopters offer fantastic Big island Hawaii tours to guests with a sense of adventure.
Big Island, Hawaii, tours
All of the Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanoes that arose from the sea floor through what geologists describe as a "hotspot." The Hawaiian Archipelago was created in this manner. The largest of these islands is the Big Island. Hawaii helicopter tour rides give guests an aerial view of the still active Mount Kilauea, which last erupted in 1983 and has remained active ever since.
Depending upon which route or routes your own Big Island, Hawaii helicopter tour takes, you will also see the volcanoes of Mauna Loa and the snow-covered peaks of Mauna Kea that rise some 13,796 feet above sea level at the Big Island. Hawaii helicopter tour rides include views of the Kau Desert, the Puna Fern Forest and the magnificent orchid gardens of Hilo.
