We booked our tour and was picked up by the company on time. When we arrived the staff was friendly and seemed helpful. This is where our whole experience turned to hell. We ask the lady who where allocating the seats if my son could sit in the middle next to me and my friend. She said the pilot is... More

This was one of my favorite activities that we did on the Big Island. While it is EXORBITANTLY expensive, it is well worth the money for that once in a lifetime view (how often do you get to see a volcano erupting from overhead? Fly into a canyon you could never hike into?). The pilots are very well informed and... More

This was one of the best moments of our entire trip- I did the Big Island Spectacular, and would give it 10 stars if I could- some of the most amazing sights I've ever seen or even dreamt of. Our pilot Toshi was hilarious, informative, and fun. I have only praise for this amazing experience.

We flew with Tom today and saw how spectacular this big island is. Lava flows, a village with flows right on the edge, incredible views of hot molten red lava, whales and more whales, the cliffs and the waterfalls. Blue Hawaiian Helicopters are safe, comfortable, have great music during flight, and Tom was funny and knowledgeable. So cool for our... More

We did see some red hot lava on the field. But we did not spend a lot of time seeing this new flow. They did NOT take us above the Caldera, So this was a Huge disappointment. $1000.00 for 2 adults, and we were told that we would be flying over the caldera when we booked. So no, I would... More

very professionally run operation, from the check in people to the safety people and the ground crew that helps you board and the pilot. We did a 45 minute trip over the volcano that is presently having lava flow, and saw the extent of the flow for the last 6 months. The pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly, we were... More

We took a different tour to see the volcanoes national park, so we decided on the Kohala Coast for our helicopter tour. The tour was about 45 minutes long and was AMAZING! We saw so many beautiful waterfalls and flew into and around the DEEP valleys. This was well worth the cost! We flew in the A-star helicopter, with one... More

Wife and I booked them for a helicopter tour and were impressed. We did a volcanoes and waterfalls tour and the scenery was great. They took us over the June 27th flow and the pilot was both engaging and professional. They have a great safety record and are easy to find at the Hilo airport. We had a great time... More

Totally professional operation with a personal touch. I swear they picked the people going in each helicopter so they would get along well. Tour was amazing and worth the gasp inducing price. We did the full island tour and I'm glad we did. I would have picked lava over valleys if we had only done half but I ended up... More

We took a 2h tour of Big Island including the Volcanoes National Park. The pre-flight preparation is very well organised. We flew aboard a modern Eco-Star chopper. The 2 hour tour is amazing and made us visit from the air about 70% of Big Island. Our pilot was a true professional and was an amazing entertainer. Even the music during... More
