A wonderful flight to the waterfalls. It's hard to even comprehend just how secluded these falls are and the grand size of the falls are only appreciated when you see another helicopter fly past! Awesome pilot too!

We want to thank our pilot Noah for a great experience on the Blue Hawaiian spectacular. The Helicopter was comfortable and quiet. Noah was very knowledgeable and shared the history and facts of the island throughout the 2 hr trip. The scenery was awe inspiring and the sound track Noah chose for the trip was great. I was brought to... More

We did the Kohala Coast Adventure 50 minute trip, and it was awesome! yes, it's expensive. But, it's a helicopter ride along the Hawaiian coast and inside a valley to see amazing waterfalls. I wish the weather cooperated a bit more during our trip, as there was some fog and rain, and the visibility was poor at times. But, that's... More

It was a wonderful trip, once in a lifetime! Amazing views that can only be appreciated from the air. Soundtrack they play during the trip is cool, queued to the sights as you go along. Only problem is that if you get a "chatty Cathy" on the trip like we did, it will also be on your recording of the... More

There is no way to view the active volcano on foot, or see fresh lava flow. The helicopter tour is exceptional. We circled Kilaeau, with Scott our pilot giving us views from both sides of the helicopter, along with very educational information concerning it, the lava tubes, as well as the cliffs, valleys and waterfalls on the north side of...

Seeing so many sights that one cannot see from car or on foot was incredible! Our pilot, Toshi, was humorous and kind. We had such a wonderful time watching the sunrise over the mountain and seeing active lava and waterfalls. There was not a better way to welcome turning 50!

We had wanted to do the 2 hour tour which included the volcano, but the morning of our trip the weather was too bad and we couldn't fly there. We were very disappointed. Tried to find another time but nothing available prior to our leaving. We were offered the 1 hour trip and at first I didn't want to do... More

Went on the Circle of Fire and Waterfalls flight with Pilot Scott. Scott was an excellent, knowledgeable pilot. He made sure everyone in the helicopter was at ease and comfortable. He would fly around a sight, then turn around so the people on the other side of the helicopter had the same view--everyone saw everything. It was not just a... More

I felt the need to post another review for this attraction after getting all my pictures back and getting to re-live the experience. We did the Big Island Tour so we were treated to the full experience of the volcanos, valleys, gorges and waterfalls. This is a once in a lifetime thing and yes, it is expensive but you will...

Eric was our pilot on the Circle of Fire Tour. The volcano activity had stalled while we were visiting the island and we were determined to see some volcanic activity. Well needless to say we saw a small fire on the hardened lava and were told that was from the lava flow. Bit disappointing but the helicopter tour was absolutely... More
