Lava!Island Hoppers has operated aerial tours over the Big Island of Hawaii since 1986. We are both the largest and oldest Big Island air tour company, yet still small enough to provide personal, family-style attention to all our clients.  With departures daily from both our Hilo and Kona airport locations, we offer the best in variety and value.  We are proud of our 18-year fatality-free operation history, and make safety our number one priority.

Avoid the "tourist Herd" syndrome by choosing our smaller,  more maneuverable 3 and 7-passenger  aircraft.  Each passenger is provided with an individually adjustable 2-way headset, allowing comfortable conversation with the pilot and other passengers.

We are the ONLY Big Island Air Tour company that can provide absolute guaranteed reservations for parties as small as 2 passengers!  Don't take a chance on being cancelled at the last minute by booking a flight on a larger aircraft which might not reach the company's minimum passenger requirement.

 Your knowledgeable pilot will provide insights into our island's secrets, and history.
Airplanes provide a safer, quieter, and  smoother ride than helicopters, taking you up close to view the active volcano, rainforests, hidden valleys, waterfalls, migrating whales (in season) and more.

  Customer Feedback:

My family took your circle tour of the island almost 3 years ago.  And we're still talking about it!  Our son (who was 9 at the time) remembers getting a little green from motion sickness, but says the part of the flight where we circled around to see the lava flowing into the ocean was "really super".  Our video camera  turned out amazing pictures of that and of numerous waterfalls flowing off the northeast side of the island, even though my husband was just learning how to work the camera.  Thanks again for a memorable experience.
