Blue Hawaiian Helicopters has entered into a partnership with Kau Coffee Mill for a new tour on the Island of Hawaii. 

The Craters and Coffee Tour ($439 per person) enables participants to experience two of the island's iconic features: volcanoes and world-class coffee.

The flight goes over the Kilauea Volcano summit before landing at Kau Coffee Mill on the slopes of Mauna Loa, where guests get a "seed-to-cup" walking tour of the coffee orchards, milling and roasting room. The tour ends in the tasting room where participants can sample and purchase several varieties of coffee, local macadamia nuts and chocolate-covered peaberry coffee beans. 

Next, participants reboard the helicopter and get bird's-eye views of black sand beaches at Pohoiki and Kapoho Bay, waterfalls and lava flows before ending the one-hour, 45-minute tour.
