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.

Our family of four did the Circle of Fire Tour on 7/22/2021 and we were quit disappointed in the tour. The weather didn't permit us to fly inland and approach the volcano. We did an out and back along the coast, yes it is beautiful and I'm sure their fine print allows them to take what ever route weather permits. But buyer beware you may not get the experience you hoped for and in my opinion paid for.

Heard good things about this company but was disappointed with customer service. The pilot was awesome, friendly, and made the experience great despite the poor weather. But the company never gave me kamaaina discount when I put it in the notes section and showed my Hawaii ID at check in. The seating also isn’t the best unless you pay an additional $100 to sit in the front. Feels like they stole $450 for an quick airplane ride on the coast. So disappointed.

DO NOT BOOK WITH BLUE HAWAIIAN!!!!! We were scheduled for a helicopter tour at 1:45 today, with a check in time of 1:00. We paid a taxi $60 to drive us there from our resort. As we were pulling into the parking lot at 12:55pm we received a call that the flight was cancelled. They weren’t able to reschedule us for later in the week which was very disappointing. We scheduled our entire day around this and now we’re leaving with no experience. The manager was COMPLETELY RUDE and could care less that we now have to pay the taxi driver another $60 to take us back to the hotel. She should NOT be working in management, customer service or with the public!! We paid $120 to drive to and from the airport. That was our day. I would 100% NOT RECOMMEND Blue Hawaii Helicopters. The only thing blue is the feeling of sadness and sheer disappointment from wanting a fun and memorable experience and having it crushed. Had they called earlier in the day to cancel we could have saved $120 and made other plans. They refused to reimburse us for the taxi ride. It’s extremely difficult to book anything else this late in the day. Other couples were pulling up as we were leaving and they were not notified their flights were cancelled. Worst experience ever!!! If you want a helicopter tour book with anyone but Blue Hawaiian! Terrible!! JUST TERRIBLE! Scammers!

-You WILL be sharing the helicopter with others. For the amount of money we paid, I thought my wife and I would have the helicopter to ourselves on our honeymoon. Very disappointing. -The pilot came in before the flight to inform us that there was a change of plans due to low cloud coverage, which happens every day at the same time of day. Why sell a package if you know that you can’t give the customers what they paid for!? With a look of careless empathy, he then said we could reschedule if we wanted to. Basically, take it or leave it. -The flight will not be smooth. There was a lot of turbulence and motion sickness set in quickly. Be prepared and take a double dose of Dramamine if you want to survive. -I would not recommend this for anybody, being that it is not worth the amount of money for a look at a couple waterfalls that may not be running due to lack of rain and a turbulent flight over the dry side of an island. -2 stars because we did fly and we didn’t crash.
