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 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.

Big Island - Hilo

**I recommend it for any seeking a helicopter adventure** My family and I have always had a positive experience with Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tours. First, they are focused on safety which includes passengers wearing their property flotation devices, guiding passengers to and from the helicopter, etc. We felt very safe during the entire flight, including ascending, descending, banking, and turning. Each passenger will get an opportunity to view the Hawaiian beauty. The seats are better by the front and the windows if sitting in the back. Sitting in the middle doesn't give you a similar viewing experience. Unfortunately, you're at the mercy of balance. Staff will need to properly balance the helicopter, so you can't easily swap seats at a whim. Great music during the tour. Our pilot was Kai. Great pilot. Easy going and casual. Ground staff provides excellent customer service. They even gave me great Hilo restaurant recommendations. It's better to ask the locals to find the best meals ever.

Big Island - Waikoloa

Dropping onto a small landing pad next to an half mile long waterfall, priceless. Spotting whales, flying between and through the mountains, breathtaking. The coastline filled with cliffs and waterfalls. Shane, the pilot was extraordinare.

Oahu - Honolulu

One of many highlights on my vacation in Oahu. The staffs were friendly and professional. Clear on instructions before and after boarding the chopper. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, gave some tips on which beaches to go based on the season. Flew by some great beaches, mountain and waterfalls. I highly recommend Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. Best experience ever

Unique experience to see the island
Big Island - Hilo

First time riding a helicopter, was a little nervous at first, but became comfortable after a few minutes. Views of the island, lava, and volcanos were great. The pilot was very knowledgeable and also showed us some waterfalls.

Kauai - Lihue

It was excellent. I was a bit hesitant at the beginning. I decide to do this tour with my husband and son as the coastline had very high tides. We were instructed in safety procedures and on we went with John. He flew so well...I did not feel any bumpiness. He gave us a wonderful tour with sights and explanations of lore, terrain, etc. Everyone was able to take photos as he made sure to fly around a few times. We saw the Na'Pali Coast, Volcano, waterfalls, movie setting for Jurassic Park. I recommend this if you go during Winter as our boat tour cancelled on us. I saw si much more than I thought . My husband and son loved being on a helicopter. It was my first time on a helicopter. Will do this again in Maui. You can also buy photos and the video of your tour. Customer service was excellent.

Amazing flight! Hawaii is definitely one of those places that should be seen from the air. Mountains and values with views of the coast and waterfalls! We had a tour of Maui and our pilot Mike was great!
