A State of Aloha

Welcome to Hawaii.

Made up of four main islands, plus four smaller islands, the legendary Hawaiian archipelago is one of the most magnificent places in the world. From lush rainforests and cascading waterfalls, to the white-sand and black-sand beaches, from the turquoise blue water to volcanic badlands to unforgettable historic sights, each island offers something uniquely beautiful that can only be experienced from the air. And the best way to experience it is with the world‘s most honored helicopter tour company.

The Big Island Experience

The Big Island of Hawaii is the largest island in the Hawaiian archipelago—almost as large as all the other islands combined—and bursting with life. Within 4,000 square miles of land, you’ll experience dense tropical rainforests, black-sand beaches, snow-capped peaks, remnants of ancient Hawaiian settlements, and the incredible Kilauea volcano.

The Maui Experience

Maui is renowned for its unimaginable beauty. Alpine-like forests cover the upcountry slopes of Mt. Haleakala, the world’s largest dormant volcano. The famed “Road to Hana” hugs the coast, white sandy beaches line the shores, and magnificent sea cliffs hover over the blue Pacific. An aerial tour of Maui will quickly reveal why it’s continually been voted “The World’s Best Island.”

The Kauai Experience

Six million years of powerful natural forces have sculpted Kauai into what it is today, a natural masterpiece. The incomparable Na Pali Coast, Waimea Valley (the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”), and stunning Mount Waiʻaleʻale (the second wettest place on earth), are among Kauai’s incredible wonders that are so remote, they are only accessible by helicopter.

Very nice trip
Kauai - Lihue

We had a very nice and interesting captain (who used to be a captain in the US-Navy) on our helicopter tour over Kauai. He did a great tour with us. We had beautiful weather that day. The island has shown itself at its best. We are looking forward coming back soon.

My fiancée and I took this tour back in the week of August 18, 2019. Our pilot was great and showed real knowledge of the area we toured. Making sure everyone was able to catch every detail we can see from the sky as possible in the amount of time allowed. He maneuvered the helicopter with great elegance. Communicated with everyone on board making sure everyone was having a great time. We purchased the video to have for our memories of our first tour of the volcano in Hawaii from over head and to share with family and friends. The next time we are out in Hawaii doing our island hop we will book another tour forsure and recommend Blue Hawaiian Helicopters to whoever is heading out to the Big Island. Mahalo! And Aloha! Till next time Hawaii! We miss you!

Worst experience I have ever had on vacation! They separated my wife and I. I was put in the back corner by myself behind the pilot; facing the ocean for a good portion of the flight. One of the employees told me I was set to be with my wife in the front, but another man paid an extra $100 for my spot. I had already paid an extra $200 over the normal ticket price to ensure we would be together and comfortable. Most of the scenery was on the passenger side, but I couldn't see very well because there was a couple next to me with a baby in their laps that wouldn't hold still and when the baby was not in the way they had their go-pro on a stick blocking the window (the pilot would do occasional twists so I would get 2-3 seconds of a view). I voiced my concern before the flight, but the staff basically threatened to put us both where neither of us could see. My wife on the other hand had a great view and a great flight with some other man! Wish I could have experienced our 15 year anniversary helicopter flight in Hawaii with her!!Note: I waited 8 months to post because I thought I would get over how upset this made me, but I am obviously still very frustrated by my experience with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters!

A fear of helicopters but it was time to overcome. A never forget experience, amazing views - pictures don't do it justice. The process of getting on board was smooth and they made me feel right at ease. Boarding with my family we slid on our headphones and off we went. Pilot was great, very knowledgeable and you could tell he had a passion for what he does. Book it and see images that with take your breath away. We flew into a volcano - do you need to say more!
