Eli was our pilot, he made the trip more interesting informing us about life on the island. He knew a lot about the volcano, he gave safety tips for hikers and was very knowledgeable about the area. His calm demeanor and skill helped ease my fear of first trip in a helicopter.

I think I'm still hyperventilating about how great an experience this was. Taking a helicopter ride was something I had on my bucket list and what better place to do it but on the island of Hawaii! We flew over most of the island and saw some amazing and spectacular views. For me there were two parts of the trip... More

Thank you for a great tour! Toshi was our pilot, and super informative about the areas that we were seeing! We originally booked the 2 hour tour; we thought we might as well go for the big time given this was the first time we had been on a helicopter and it was Hawaii! Unfortunately though, it had to be... More

What a beautiful experience we saw snow, lava and incredible waterfalls. Blue Hawaiian has an amazing staff, fabulous aircraft and a commitment to safety. Highly recommend- book for the start of your trip in case you have to reschedule due to weather- easy to reschedule for future dates. Best way to familiarize yourself with the island as well!

Well worth going with Blue Hawaiian helicopters, Pilot/tour guide very knowledgeable and made friends with all onboard. Views and sights were second to none, couldn't have asked for a better helicopter trip and with the pilot answering all questions posed to him made this a very memorable honeymoon for us.

We went on the kohala coast tour and it was amazing.... The staff was pleasant and professional. The helicopter was beautiful seats were comfortable. I was a little apprehensive at first because my husband gets motion sick but Greg' s expertise as a pilot made us feel like we were just floating in the sky. Greg shared his knowledge of... More

I live here so I was waiting for the "perfect" day. With work and other things getting in the way I was running out of time to cash in on my gift. The day I booked was raining and many flights on the east had to be cancelled, but ours was not. I was concerned that the views would be... More

We did the Big Island Spectacular tour and got to see far more of the island's volcanos, lava, coast and waterfalls than we ever could even in several days on the ground. The local knowledge, enthusiasm and passion of our pilot, Chase, really made this tour great and added huge depth to our experience.

We booked the Big Island Spectacular with the waterfall landing in an EcoStar helicopter. Our pilot, Marco, made it a memorable and worthwhile adventure. We flew past the telescopes at the Keck Observatory, lava flows at Volcano National Park, the beautiful coastline and made an AMAZING landing at the base of a secluded waterfall that is only accessible by copter....

We booked Blue Hawaiian on our own so we probably paid full price. That being said, we got the trip we wanted, when we wanted and with a fresh enthusiastic pilot. We set in the front seats next to the pilot, in the new Eco class helicopter. The amount of glass and overall visibility was excellent; contributing to a fantastic... More
