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 Orchid Isle

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.

Amazing!  I took my daughter (who had just bike packed around the whole island) and my 80 year old mother with me to mark helicopter ride in Hawaii off my bucket list.  Wesley was a very fun, engaging and competent pilot.  He made the trip!  I was very impressed with his stories about the island and knowledge about volcanoes.  Don't worry about your seat assignment as Wesley made sure both sides of the helicopter saw everything.  He even showed us some waterfalls along the coast too.   I can't say enough good things about this company.  It was very smooth check in process and it was not scary at all.  (Lots of safety protocol in place).  Wesley even offered to take our pictures when we finished our tour in front of the helicopter.

Barret and Gregg did a fantastic job. Barret was our first pilot. Our first helicopter had a fuel indicator light come on mid flight so we had to land at an alternate airport for safety. While on the ground he gave us a tour of the helicopter and let the kids sit in the pilot seat. Another helicopter arrived piloted by Gregg where they continued the tour where it left off. Both pilots were excellent and the level of professionalism was outstanding. We saw a lot and was very impressed with the tour and everything the company did to make it an enjoyable experience. Thank you so much and highly recommended!! Never felt unsafe one time. Very worth it! Don’t hesitate to book!

If you want to do this adventure but feel too afraid or feel it costs too much--force yourself to go!   I saw the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen in my 63 years on earth!  It was other worldly, as if I was in a dream floating along with the clouds and looking at the beautiful garden isle of Kauai. The staff and the operation itself is SO very professional -that will allay your fears, if you are fearful. But you shouldn't be, because they are also expertly experienced and operate under heavy safety protocols. Our pilot Barrett was fun and funny and extremely competent. These folks have been flying a long time. Do not miss this once in a lifetime experience of pure beauty and exhilaration!  The canyon, the northern coast of cliffs, the volcano-- all so amazing and areas you cannot get to on your own. It was more than worth the price tag--just GO! You will absolutely not regret it! I'm just a regular person-- and this ride (eco tour) was practically a life-changing experience of beauty.

We flew with Derrick on the Maui Spectacular tour...it was Amazing!!! I was a little worried about how it was going to go because I've never been on a helicopter before, but everything was GREAT! I wish I could afford to do this every day because I totally would. Derrick explained everything we were seeing and it was so beautiful and interesting. We bought the video of our trip too. Totally worth it! Go on this tour, it's Awesome!!!

Bad customer service
Maui - Kahului

We booked this tour months in advance as the highlight of our trip to Kauai. We got on the helicopter twice and after spending 2 hrs doing the check in process, safety video and on boarding our trip was canceled and all we were offered was a full refund. With our trip ending in two days, we were not offered any other tours. For a wasted two hours and the missed opportunity to do a helicopter tour, I do not think a full refund was appropriate compensation. The management was not very helpful and simply stated “you want us to inconvenience other guests so that you can do your tour?” When I was simply asking for them to add an additional tour time to accommodate the six passengers that missed out on the opportunity. Very disappointing.
