One of our top things to do on the Islands and would Not go with any other business. Blue Hawaiian is the BEST!! As a family of 7 we took up an entire helicopter and did the Big Island Spectacular .. Pricey but worth every penny. Ask for Tooshi the greatest pilot ever who made our two hour flight extremely... More

Great organization from bottom to top. Phone reps very helpful (important to us older customers) and pilot was very professional and really seem to enjoy the flight,even though he must do 10 per week. Take camera for some great shots and take newer helicopters I took 2 hr flight and we saw whole island inc. volcanoes and Waipoia valleys. A... More

Made the drive to Hilo from Waikaloa to do the lava and waterfall tour. I have to say, I think if you go into it knowing what to expect, than it's not a bad experience. The flight was fine. We saw a few waterfalls from afar. We went to a crater, and we were lucky enough to see into an... More

I know helicopter tours aren't that environmentally friendly and all that but this is one experience that it is worth putting aside your concerns and just enjoying. Did the volcano tour and the added landing at the base of an amazing waterfall on the coast. All the staff were excellent and the pilot was great - full of knowledge and... More

This is a great trip with a very professional operation. Here's the tip. If you book 5 days in advance you will get a discount. My saving was in excess of $50. You don't pay upfront and can cancel at 24 hours notice so it seems to me to be a no- brainer. If you are staying in Waikola I... More

We have taken blue Hawaiian helicopter tours on other islands. This was as good as others. We took the 2 hour tour that covered the volcano and waterfalls. Amazing and beautiful. Our pilot, Dell, was great.......friendly and informative. We had great weather and saw a lot. Well worth the money. Be sure to wear a dark shirt, tho. They gave... More

My daughter and I booked the 2 hour tour out of Waikoloa. It was amazing. Our pilot, Jason, provided a lot of interesting information about the island along with some fairly cheesy jokes, but it all made for a really enjoyable trip. We were able to see new lava flows up close as well as lava within the crater of... More

This was a great adventure. Our pilot was Jason and he was great. Beware if you are prone to motion sickness this helicopter will go in circles over the lava and around the waterfalls. I got pretty sick, but was still able to enjoy most of the ride. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely use this company... More

My twelve year old and I took the Volcano and Island helicopter tour ... and I can tell you, any question I had about the cost and whether it would be worth it evaporated upon take-off. We flew across the entire island, saw bubbling lava consuming parts of the rain forest, flew directly above volcano and saw the lava and... More

Unable to fly over the volcanoes due to poor weather I was more than disappointed! However the flight over the Kohala mountains and coast was very spectacular. Our pilot was friendly and informative; he skilfully steered the helicopter in and out of the valleys diving and swooping to see an amphitheatre like valley with numerous waterfalls cascading down to the...
