Caribbean Helicopter Charters has been serving the Caribbean for over 18 years, with an exemplary safety record. They offer various charters from Antigua, but the most unique is a tour of the south side of Montserrat, where in 1995 the Soufrière Hills volcano erupted, completely destroying the capital city, Plymouth and the surrounding area.
Today half of the this incredible Caribbean island is uninhabitable, and about two thirds of the population have left the island.
From Antigua you will fly direct to the East Coast of Montserrat. The entire flying tour of Montserrat is over the “exclusion zone”, which is an area that has been designated off limits to habitation or ground transportation, so the best way to see the volcano is by helicopter.
The good news is Montserrat’s north end of the island is open to tourist. After years of constructions, actually, ‘starting from scratch,’ the future capital, Little Bay is being to pulsate. Montserrat is a destination to put on your list.
