As we were riding to the airport for the tour, we were told by the bus driver not to expect too much and he was right. We like helicopter tours but this is by far the worst. You practically don't see anything except some masses of gray lava and occasional steam bursts. Wasted money; was better to take a land tour to the volcano park.
Jeremy was our pilot. We were lucky the rain lifted and we were able to fly out to the volcano.. Jeremy pointed out so many interesting things. I could not remember all the details.. they video tape the entire flight so we purchased it. Yes it may be grainy but it has everything that was said and views you miss trying to take tons of pictures. Jeremy flew us over the main lava tube that had collapsed so we could see the lava flowing bright orange. This was everything I had hoped it to be and another bucket list item has been checked off. Jeremy's knowledge and love of his island was very evident. Would love to fly with him again.
