Our first ride was clouded out after 20 minutes, so they gave us the option for full refund or reschedule. We rescheduled and it was amazing! All the seats are great, I was able to take great pictures from the middle rear and the front. We saw some great waterfalls then searched around the lava fields for fresh, glowing lava.... More

Let me start by saying that we had the best flight/tour of Hawaii I could possibly imagine. The weather was perfect, our pilot (Greg) was a wealth of knowledge, appeared to know what he was doing (thank goodness for that, right?) and had a very calm demeanor. It's clear he loves what he does and loves the island he lives... More

Our flight was early morning, but it wasn't bad because we were staying close. The moon was still our for part of flight which was really interesting to see. All the staff was amazing. Our pilot Tom was very nice and we could tell he was a great pilot. We did the Big Island Spectacular so it was 2 hours.... More

This business is run an a professional and safe fashion. Nice facilities and top of the line helicopters. My Wife and I went on the two hour Big Island Tour and we got to see everything from angry volcanoes, to green 2000 foot vertical cliffs, to mountain tops and beaches and everything in between. The pilot was full of local... More

We stopped by the Blue Hawaiian office to check it out and decided to go for it (veterans discount helped!) It's an expensive activity, but we hadn't ridden a helicopter before and decided to go for it. Well worth it! The staff were all super friendly and welcoming. I was a little nervous after getting sick at the manta ray... More

Woah!!! It's hard for me to describe in words about the outstanding helicopter ride I took with my family! Everything was outstanding from the moment we were greeted at check in by an amazingly friendly staff offering us coffee and water, to our pilot who personally walked us back to the check out point at the end. Pilot Steve educated... More

We recently rode the 2 hour Big Island Spectacular from Waikoloa with Blue Hawaiian helicopters and had an absolutely fabulous experience. The views and sights were out of this world as we got to see the lava flow as well as beautiful cathedral waterfalls. Our pilot, Shane, was knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. This was our 4th helicopter tour with Blue... More

This was by far the highlight of my trip to Hawaii. We took the Big Island Tour and we flew all over and saw the volcano and the waterfalls. I have never done anything so amazing before.
