Modern Helicopter! Great tour ! been on lots of Helicopter tours and some pretty rickety old army Helios so nice to climb in a Nice clean modern machine .i mean i am picky wont get on a prop jet .even the wife felt safe 2 years earlier she flat out refused a 40 yr Jet Ranger in Peru with flaking paint . I mean flew a Chinook off the Pan Am building have jumped out of UH1 like 50 times and can judge a Helicopter operator pretty much on the spot. 5 stars great tour
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!
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!
We had a great tour of the Big Island with Blue Hawaiian! Volcanos, waterfalls, mountains, rain forests....spectacular! We even had a couple on our trip that got engaged at the bottom of the waterfall! Our pilot was friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely competent.
Fantastic! Paid for the upgrade to sit up front with the Pilot Shay.! One of our first tours! Worth every penny!
신속하고 친절하며 안전한 헬기여행이였습니다
Amazing experience...exceeded expectations. The best way to see Kauai!! Not to mention, we had an absolutely wonderful pilot...Tim! Overall, awesome!
Excellent flight around hawaii, love to do it again
Beautiful. Tell Christopher, Cindy Melinda Leatherwood that was with Pam is skydiving from a helicopter today. Happy Birthday to her❤️ You guys were all GREAT.
We went out of the small airport in Princeville for the 45-minute ride around the island. We had an absolutely beautiful day, which can be a little unusual. The tour took us south from Princeville down the middle of the island, before cutting west through Waimea Canyon and the back up along the Napali Coast. Our pilot Mark was great, making multiple turns around the best sports so people on both sides of the copter got great views. His knowledge of the island also was a big plus -- he had lots of information about what we were seeing. We weren't planning on this but our cruises along the Napali Coast got canceled so we tried it and no regrets. They also offer a video of the trip, that was quite good (although there can be some audio issues on Macs). It was pricey (about $60) but a great record of the trip.
Our party of 4 took a 50 minute helicopter ride over spring break. We had some iffy weather during our stay but Blue Hawaiian was great about rescheduling our flight. It was a truly amazing experience! I was nervous about a helicopter ride, but it was on my husband's bucket list so I figured I would join him. It was a beautiful and serene tour with unbelievable views that you can't get from touring the island via car. Our pilot, Beth, was very knowledgeable and experienced. Definitely a must do activity!
This was my first helicopter ride, since a helicopter tour was highly recommended by so many people that I spoke with who had been to Kauai. A large portion of this island is comprised of dense jungle, and there's no way to really see the island fully unless you take a helicopter ride. We were able to book our tour at Blue Hawaiian for the same day, and the tour was a few hours after I called in.Blue Hawaiian is one of the pricier tours to go on, and it was $289/person for a 50-55 minute tour. I went on the tour at 2:30pm, and they were right on time. They are located to the side of the main airport, and parking was easy since they have their own lot. You check in at the front desk, then you watch the safety video in a large group. They then split you up to groups of around 6, and then you're seated in the place primarily by weight, to ensure the helicopter is balanced properly. Everyone gets a head seat so you're able to listen and talk to the pilot throughout the flight. My pilot was very knowledgeable, and shared some interesting facts during the flight. They bring you to see the area on the island where Jurassic Park was filmed (Napali Coast, Waimea Falls), which are only accessible by helicopter. The ride was really bumpy at times, but you really do get the best opportunity to see some amazing views and take photos. Also Blue Hawaiian is pricey, they are very professional and they make you feel safe during the tour.
With the pilot there were 6 of us in the helicopter. Our pilot, Dave, was excellent - pointed out places of interest, had some good stories but also left some 'quiet time' which we enjoyed.
