A sunset helicopter experience is the perfect way to cap off a day in paradise. After departing from the Kona International Airport, you will head north in a comfortable Bell 407 tour helicopter to soar over and tour paradise at day's end.

Highlights

  • See the Kona and Kohala coasts
  • Witness Kohala Mountain and its valleys
  • Encounter numerous waterfalls
  • View Mauna Loa, the world's largest volcano
  • Experience a Hawaiian sunset from the skies

Description

Your sunset tour will begin with viewing some of the gorgeous beaches tucked away below lava fields along the Kona and Kohala Coasts. Next, you’ll venture to the far side of the Kohala Mountains, where a secluded and nearly inaccessible series of valleys awaits. Following this, you will visit crest Mauna Loa, the world’s largest volcano which was most recently active just 30 years ago. With the sun now behind the mountain, you’ll be able to better spot the glowing lava, as well as the magma lake within Halema‘uma‘u Crater. You’ll see the Punalu‘u black sand beach and Papakōlea green sand beach, two of the most strikingly beautiful and exotic beaches in the world. You will also pass over Pu‘uhonua ‘o Hōnaunau, a place of refuge under ancient Hawaiian law, and Kealakekua Bay where Capt. James Cook first came ashore in the 1700s. This is truly one of nature’s best shows. The sky will turn shades of bright yellow, deep orange, burning red and, occasionally, brilliant purple. The photos you’ve seen will pale in comparison with the real thing, and you’ll understand why even locals pause what they’re doing and turn to the western skies most evenings. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a green flash on the horizon as the sun slips down below. Don’t forget to turn around, as the last rays of light illuminate the clouds behind you. Before dark, the colors will fade to delicate pastel hues, a gentle postscript for nature’s masterwork.
