Iolani Air Tours
Imagine looking down on the unforgettable sight of lava very slowly flowing into the ocean and seeing the smoke and steam rise upů.. it happened the day I was aboard an Iolani Air Tour flight of the Hilo volcanoes on the Big Island. Of course that was my experience based on what was happening and the conditions, each trip will be unique and based on the most recent activity. Iolani Air's single engine Cessna Aircraft are perfect for small groups of four to seven passengers and provides each guest with comfort and easy communication and narration during the flight. Iolani Air Tours will allow you to see and experience the incredible beauty and amazement of this vast volcanic area and feel it's power. No visit to Hawaii, the largest island in our chain, is complete without an aerial tour of this unique and diverse island and the pricing is very reasonable.
