Big Island Spectacular

Booked the Kohala Coast Adventure Tour for me and my son and couldn't have been happier. We weren't able to book a rental car because of the shortage and decided to splurge on this helo tour instead - best decision! Marco was our pilot and was truly outstanding. Didn't want the trip to end. Will definitely book again next time we come back to HI. Thanks for a truly memorable and breathtaking experience!

SECOND TIME FLYING WITH THEM! Big Island Spectacular

My first time flying with Blue Hawaiian helicopters was in Kauai and I loved the service and the experience you get when you see the island from above... This time I decided to take a two hour tour around the big island and it was one of the best experiences Ive ever had in my life!! I wish I could remember the name of the pilot, because I can only remember how good or flight was and how great of a tour guide he is! We got to see lava coming out of the Kilauea and to take a close look of the waterfalls! BEST TOUR EVER! I know that paying 600USD+ per person is not cheap, but is something that you have to experience! There no other way to see the whole island!

Great flight & pilot Big Island Spectacular

We took an island tour with our Blue Hawaiian Helicopter pilot Toshi this afternoon and we had a great time! It’s a relatively expensive couple of hours, but well worth it for how much ground can be covered in the air versus driving about the Big Island. Toshi was a very safe, knowledgeable and entertaining pilot who have his five passengers the benefit of his 20+ years as a pilot for Blue Hawaiian. The Airbus helicopter we used was clean and, obviously, very well maintained. The cabin was kept cool and comfortable despite the outside heat. We saw the Big Island from one end to the other and more volcanoes that I’ve ever seen in one small area. At the end of the ride we even saw whales at play just offshore. Fun from start to finish and highly recommended!
