Loren, our pilot was very friendly and informative. The flight was very smooth and he took us to see the whole island. Would reccomend highly
So awesome! Derek is such a great pilot, funny, and personable. The views are out of this world!
If you are going to splurge on one activity when in Maui, it should be this one. The tour was very expensive, but well worth it. We circled the entire island (almost) and were able to see Hana without having to make the difficult drive from the north shore. You should do this tour on one of your first days in Maui because it will give you a good perspective of the entire island. Highly recommended.
Boring, including the long drawl narration by the pilot, Lauren. Mostly coastal perimeter of Oahu and some of it's interior farm fields. Nothing significant nor of heightening.site seeing. One star out of 3.
One of the best birthdays ever! Seeing the island from the air is far more exciting and unique than your imagination. Our pilot was a great tour guide and made the entire experience perfect. The moment we landed, we wanted to go again.
I previously booked with another helicopter company that was cheaper but due to maintenance issues it was canceled. Due to my limited time on the island I coughed up the extra $300 and hoped that it was going to be worth the extra money. It was so worth it. The wi down and seating g allowed for everyone to get a great view of the volcanoes and waterfalls. Wesley was phenomenal. He engaged with everyone and gave us great i formation. Do not let price be the determining factor fg with Blue Hawaijan. So glad that I did!
OMGosh. Even if you've done the helicopter tour in the past, this will still be a treat not to be missed. Our pilot was Loren, he was great, funny and made the experience a lot of fun. Highly recommend booking ahead, these folks sell out fast!
I had previously booked with another company months in advance and was canceled days before our trip. In my scramble I booked with Hawaiian and paid an extra $300. It was the best trip. Wesley our pilot was phenomenal and everyone could see everything. Their helicopters are state of the art which is the reason they charge more. Book with Blue Hawaiian and request Wesley you will not be sorry!
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!!!
The day we decided to do our helicopter ride it was cloudy and rainy. We still went with the hopes of it clearing up we were in the air for around 20 minutes when we had to turn back because of the weather conditions. We were disappointed when they said we could reschedule because we are at the end of our trip. He then said he would give us a refund, we were expecting maybe a couple hundred after spending almost $1,000 but they gave us a full refund! They had excellent customer service and our pilate was amazing!
I was very hesitant on doing a helicopter but my husband insisted. I am so glad he did. This was amazing! I was not even slightly as scared as I thought I would be. We went in Kauai and it was Incredible. Seeing the land from that high up is amazing. Pay the extra $$$ for the seats up front. SO worth it
