We took the whole family, two adults and two kids 10 and 13. What a great start to the vacation. The island, the history, the views, and of course the crew. First class from the time you walk in the door. Mark is a very knowledgeable pilot and made our tour very enjoyable while in the air.

I was so scared to get on a helicopter but from the moment I walked in, everyone was trying to keep me relaxed. By the time I was in the air a few minutes I was at ease. I enjoyed a smooth ride while our pilot explained details of the island. It was comfortable and air conditioned. I highly recommend... More

This was one of the best things we did! It is the great way to view the island because so much of it is inaccessible and its beauty is amazing! Our pilot, Geoffrey, was informative and handled the helicopter with such ease. He made sure everyone got a good view. We could have stayed up there all day.

Tips: Leave your hotel/resort early. Despite a short distance, traffic in Lihue can slow you down. Bring only your wallet and cell phone (and/or small camera), they do have free lockers to lock up your belongings, but they won't let you take anything else in the helicopter, so don't bother bringing it. Review: Most of Kauai is not accessible by... More

Best helicopter tour I've done!!! Our guide Brodie was fantastic and personable made sure we were informed along the way. The views are stunning, I was lucky enough to be in the front on the window side so had some amazing views!!!! Only downside toward the end the helicopter was incredibly hot!

This is probably the best way to see this amazing island. There are some many remote places that can only be accessed by helicopter. The pilot was able to get very close to a lot of the mountains and gave us great vantage points for all the scenic highlights. We went with a 2 yr. old and he slept through... More

Took my first helicopter ride with Blue Hawaiian and couldn't have asked for a better tour! We had Mark, and he was very knowledgeable about the island of Kauai and we felt very safe with him as our pilot. The views were absolutely stunning! Our day was very clear so we got to go inside the crater which doesn't happen... More

In an hour you can see more of the island than you could in a few days — jungles, waterfalls, canyon, coastline, town. The highlight of my trip to the island. Shay was a great pilot. Tip: the helicopters fit 7 people total, including the pilot. 6 is the max number of guests, and about 3 take off in each... More

We chose Blue Hawaiian due to a recommendation in a guide book and we were not disappointed. They have a first class operation. Their Eco-Star helicopters have larger windows than most other operators and it made for amazing views. They assign seats based on weight distribution. If you are lucky (like my wife and daughter), you will get up front.... More
