Circle of Fire – Paradise Helicopter Tour Review
Written by: Patty
You first meet with your group and watch a video about the island’s culture, the volcano, etc., and then have a safety briefing. You then walk out to the tarmac and get loaded onto your helicopter.
I got to sit in the middle between the pilot and my husband, which made me feel much more secure. The weather was beautiful as we took off and therefore we didn’t wear our windbreakers. Big mistake!
We got so close to the bubbling pots of lava, so cool! Marco then took us out to the coast where the lava tubes were flowing and we could see it coming out of the cliffs and dropping into the blue water. Such a sight to see! It was amazing how well he handled the helicopter with how windy it was.
On the way back to the airport we flew through the rainforest and saw some gorgeous waterfalls, exactly what you would imagine seeing in Hawaii!
