Our pilot, Marty, was fantastic. The helicopter ride itself is amazing. There is NO other way to see the spectacular scenery of Kauai. It is breathtaking! It is obvious that Marty loves what he does. His commentary is not only informative, but adds a whole new dimension to the trip. The music enhances the scenery and commentary. This isa MUST... More

Our pilot was Barrett. He is native Kauai. Safe, secure, professional operation. Saw views unattainable from the ground. An outstanding part of our Kauai experience.

We were hesitant to pay the money for this helicopter tour, but a friend told me it was well worth it, and she was right!! From take off to landing, our pilot showed us waterfalls, told us the history of many different parts of the islands, flew us through the Canyon, over the volcano, along the coast... He was amazing... More

Our pilot, Beth, gave us fantastic views of cliffs, canyons, waterfalls, plantations, trees, and all of the scenery of Kauai. The high point of the flight was flying into the blown out remains of island forming volcano that created Kauai. Beth narrated the scenes below and around us with stories and history of the island and answered all our questions... More

As many times we've been to Kauai, this is the first time we've bitten the bullet and taken a helicopter ride. Now, I'm thinking of all I missed by NOT doing this earlier. We had a wonderful experience, and it was well worth the money. Weather is always unpredictable in the islands, and Kauai may be the toughest place to... More

We loved our tour of Kauai from the air. Our Pilate Marty was so knowledgable and engaging. The views were spectacular. So much to see that we would never see from the ground. The entire tour was 2 hours which included the safety video. They do show you previews of the video from your guided tour which is fun but... More

If you visit Kauai the one "must do" activity is taking a helicopter tour. Blue Hawaiian's facilities and professionalism are excellent. I particularly liked the fact that the Captain flying my helicopter was a native Hawaiian and spoke from the heart about the beauty of the island and the meaning of various sites to the locals. Helicopter touring may be... More

Loved our tour on a Blue Hawaiian Helicopter. Our pilot Barrett was excellent. He spoke to us by name and encouraged us to ask questions. After flying to a particular sight, a waterfall for example, he would turn the copter around so the "other side" had the same experience. EVERY seat provided a splendid view. Seating is determined by the... More

Geoffrey was a great pilot! It may seem expensive but it is worth it! Unforgettable scenery that you would never get to experience otherwise.

This is a first-class operation. From the minute you arrive, through the preparation for flying, the planning of entering and leaving the copter and the picture afterward are all well planned and executed. Our pilot knew the history of the island and all the places we were going to see. The views are spectacular and we were fortunate enough to... More
