Volcano Tours

A Once in A Lifetime Experience

Dormant and active volcanoes and lava flows add to the mystery and attraction of Hawaii for visitors from around the world. Volcano tours and sightseeing tours from the air remain the only way to experience the exquisite beauty of the inaccessible areas of Maui and surrounding islands. Royal Pacific Air offers tours of the dormant and active volcanoes and scenic beauty of Hawaii.

Our volcano island tours include the active volcano air tour of Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii to view the current activity and lava flows. During the tour, which lasts a little more than two hours, you will see all the natural beauty the islands have to offer. In addition to volcanoes, you will witness spectacular rain forests, breathtaking beaches, and stunning views of the coastline, waterfalls, cliffs, and the endless sea. If you visit during whale season, you may be lucky enough to view these magnificent creatures from the air.




Experience the magic of seeing one of the world’s very few active volcanoes. On the volcano tour from Oahu and Maui we will fly over famous Halemaumau Crater and see active lava flows.


We are a FAA certified air carrier with a perfect safety record, quality airplanes and experienced pilots to ensure the highest level of safety and comfort for our passengers.


In addition to the incredible views of Hawaii’s active volcano, our guests have the opportunity to see majestic waterfalls, vast sea cliffs, and acres of rainforest. The views change every flight!


“We met Captain Bill at the West Maui airport (Kapalua) and he rode us over to the Big Island to see waterfalls, the town of Hilo and the lava fields of the last major eruption. The views were incredible, the flight was superb (the temperature inside the cabin increased as we flew over the lava fields and vents), and Captain Bill provided us with excellent information. What an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience this was!”
