Departs from Hilo

The Hamakua Coast is one of the most beautiful regions in all of Hawaii. More than 80 inches of rainfall every year brings forth extraordinarily lush rainforests, breathtaking waterfalls, and serene green valleys. You’ll experience it all on this thrilling new Blue Hawaiian tour, but your expert pilot—a State of Hawaii Certified Tour Guide—will also reveal the historic side of the area’s stunning beauty, along with the Big Island’s myths, legends, and creation story. Indeed, the tour from Hilo encompasses much of the "Hamakua Heritage Corridor," including Lover’s Rock, Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, World Botanical Gardens, Laupahoehoe and its famous Train Museum, and much more. Emphasis will also be on the phenomenal palette of spectacular waterfalls: Onemea Falls, Kaiwiki Falls, Upper Falls, and the legendary 442-foot Akaka Falls—also known as wailele (leaping waters). Don’t miss this magnificent exploration of the heart of Hawaii.

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!

circle of fire tour was only okay Historic Hamakua

The first 20 minutes was interesting. Our pilot was very knowledgeable with facts and figures. The next 20 minutes was just a ride no commentary at all. We saw two waterfalls from a distance in passing. Our pilot did not point them out or share their name or any information. We did not get close enough to take any pictures. When we landed the fuel truck hurried out to refuel, so the picture they took of us in front of the helicopter has a gas truck in it (tacky).
