AAA Editor Notes
Safari Helicopter Tours departs from Hilo International Airport's commuter terminal; follow the airport access road off SR 11. Passengers on the 45-minute Volcano Safari Tour hear two-way communication with the pilot via noise-canceling headsets as they view current Kīlauea volcanic activity and destruction from previous lava flows. The 50- to 55-minute Deluxe Volcano & Coastline Safari Tour includes the same spectacular views plus views of the waterfalls northwest of Hilo.

Note: Due to decompression-related sickness, it is recommended that passengers wait 12-24 hours after scuba diving before flying; the amount of time is dependent on particular dive factors. Ask about possible policies regarding minimum wait time between scuba diving and flying; weight restrictions; weather, cancellation and refund policies; and the minimum and maximum number of passengers for flights. All small aircraft may encounter turbulence.

Guided tours are available.
