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.

Big Island - Waikoloa

The website shows us LOOPING AROUND the volcanic area. Instead we just went up to the windward side and traced the same path back and forth. The whole time we are looking at the sun so the haze was terrible. I tried to get the pilot to circle but he wouldn't. After, he gave some lame excuse. The video they made was terrible. It was blown-out for the majority of the length, because the copter was facing the sun. Very disappointing. To top it off, although they advertise 60minutue, the trip lasted only 50 minutes. When you pay SO MUCH for something like this, it is really a disappointment. I won't be using Blue Hawaiian again.

Maui - Kahului

We had booked the big tour with a stopover. Our pilot Pete flew us very well over the island of Maui. It was better than expected. Top, highly recommended.

Big Island - Waikoloa

Full disclosure, my helicopter ride got canceled, as I had arrived. The weather became too cloudy come out with no visibility. I just really appreciated the friendly customer service, and that they gave us all three options on how to proceed- full refund, different flight, or reschedule/standby. I went with the refund as I'm leaving the island tonight, but I am glad the company takes safety seriously, over profits. I'll try again next time I'm in town!

Kauai - Lihue

If you're going to Kauai, a helicopter tour is a must to appreciate the lush landscapes. Blue Hawaiian have a great operation and the tour was well worth the cost. While the helicopters have some AC, go early to avoid the heat as the sun beating through the windows can get hot.

Tour Of Kauai By Air
Kauai - Lihue

This tour was worth seeing the island by air! Originally was planning to book for myself then asked my parents if they wanted to join. They immediately said Yes! This was our first time visiting Kauai and it was a special trip celebrating both my parents turning 80 years old! Our pilot, Mark was very knowledgeable and was well skilled in maneuvering the helicopter. We booked a morning tour and the skies were clear! Such an amazing experience!!! My dad was in the Navy and it brought back memories of when he was in training and had to hop on to the helicopter to get to his training site! The staff that guided us to the pre video, boarding, and unboarding from the helicopter were all so helpful!
