A flight over Montserrat offers a very rare opportunity to witness an active volcano from a safe distance. After laying dormant for over half a century, the Soufriere Hills Volcano rumbled to life in 1995 and has been active ever since. Activity increased in 1997, with huge eruptions of lava, rocks and ash changing the face of Montserrat forever. Entire villages were engulfed by pyroclastic flows, and the southern half of the island was evacuated and is still considered an exclusion zone today.
Antigua is just 13 miles across but has many coves and bays, and 365 white sand beaches – one for every day of the year! The island has warm, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbours, and a protective, nearly unbroken wall of coral reef. Seeing Antigua from a helicopter is a beautiful sight, one not easily forgotten.

After a few booking problems, the flight took place when finally scheduled and was brilliant, well worth the trip. The journey over Montserrat was something quite special and could only be done in a helicopter.
