Many consider this area to have the most spectacular scenery on the Big Island. The towering sea cliffs open into the dramatically deep and meandering valleys of the Kohala Mountains. Beautiful waterfalls cascade thousands of feet into the rainforest below and remnants of ancient Hawaiian settlements are still visible. (see tour options ECO-Star and A-Star)

We had an amazing experience and would highly recommend this business. All staff is friendly and professional. We definitely felt we were in good hands. Our pilot was knowledgeable, interesting and friendly. He managed to engage my sons (ages 11 an 8) in conversations. Everyone loved the flight, the scenery, and the entire experience.

This is not an inexpensive activity, but it's an amazing one! The geology and landscape of this island is incredible, and this trip shows you a lot of it! Our pilot was Marco, and Marco is such a nice guy. He engages with the guests, and is very good about explaining the various aspects of the island - the volcanoes, the various lava flows, waterfalls, valleys, etc. Marco is also good about explaining what's going to happen next (e.g. it's going to get a little bumpy, but it's perfectly safe).

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!

It wasn't a first for us but if you've never been in a helicopter you just might want to take the two hour trip around the island of Hawaii. The helicopters are clean, comfortable and maintained. From the air you will fly into the valleys, see the spectacular coastline, fly over the volcano and more. We even saw some whales. While the experience isn't cheap, the trip is definitely worth it and if you pay $100 more you can get a front seat. Our pilot, Shane, was interesting and provided a lot of information.
