Departs from Hilo

Experience Kilauea and Hawaii Volcano National Park! The massive eruptions of the world’s most active and unpredictable volcano have changed the face of the Big Island in spectacular ways. On the Circle of Fire helicopter tour, you’ll embark on a breathtaking adventure, seeking out the island’s unique rainforest, newly formed landscapes and black-sand beaches, and witnessing the results of Madame Pele’s incredible volcanic activity—scenes of nature’s raw power that you’ll never forget!

Buckle into your ECO-Star chopper and pull on your aviation-grade headset, which opens up a clear line of communication between you and the pilot. Take off and rise high above the streets of as the landscapes of the Hawaii Island open up beneath you.

Soar over miles of lush forests as you head to witness the power of Kilauea. Once you reach the longest continuously erupting volcano in the world, marvel at the billows of smoke and steam rising from the craggy crater. In ideal conditions, you might even get to watch the glowing red lava slowly flow to meld with the waters of the Pacific. Then, fly above the verdant terrain flanking the Wailuku River, where waterfalls cascade into beautiful emerald ponds, before your return flight back to Hilo.

My family booked the Circle of Fire tour with this company on one of our last days on the Big Island. From the start to finish, Blue Hawaii was professional; kind; courteous in attending to our needs and making safety a priority for my family. We really appreciated being treated like VIPs on our vacation. Our pilot, Mike, was freaking awesome and provided us with his unique perspective about living on the Island and working through the Pandemic. He had a great sense of humor and I would highly recommend this company for your Helicopter tour experiences when you are in Hawaii. We are going to request him the next time we are on the Big Island. Thank you for a wonderful time and we will definitely come back and tour with you.
