We have been on 3 helicopter tours in the past, so cannot say that we are experts. However, based on our limited experience, Blue Hawaiian is the best company. They were not the company promoted by our resort and they cost slightly more. However, we asked a couple of locals and were told that this company was the best. We... More

With their refusal to reconfigure customers wanting to take photos among their seats and their MANY flights, they are truly the wrong outfit for anyone wanting to take any photos. If you get "computer selected" for their dreaded 5 or 6 seat, you're better off just staying on the ground. Of course that will screw up their "computer generated seating... More

We took a tour of Kauai via Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. Our pilot was great..I am hoping they all are. He was very knowledagble, funny and interesting. We covered the entire island and if there was a place you wanted to get in a little closer to he had no problems showing you. Yes, it was pricey but worth the hour... More

My husband and I flew on a 1 hour trip with Trevor on helicopter KQ on January 4, 2015. This was an amazing experience, exceeding our expectations in many ways. A helicopter tour is the only way to experience some parts of Kauai including the inaccessible arts of the Na Pali Coast. Furthermore, hovering in Kalalau Valley, Waimea Canyon, or... More

I'll be honest, it wasn't my idea to do this. I was pretty much encouraged by my husband. It wasn't that I was scared...well, maybe a little...but my main objective here on the amazing Island of Kauai was to hike the NaPali Coast and we'd done that. I just wasn't sure a helicopter tour would add all that much more... More

I've been visiting/staying on Kauai for the last 20 years and have always wanted to see it from the air. I've been on plenty of boat rides around the island, all the back roads by car or hiking, and practically every beach on the island but knew I was missing out on the inaccessible interior of the island. I was... More

Out of this world.....great experience!!! pilot was a great guide and knew the ins and outs of the island. Views were unbelievable. Recommend to anyone. Brought a video of our flight, cameras in and out of helicopter so you have the whole experience on film to buy (DVD). Music plays in your ear, along with talking to pilot back and... More

We have visited Kauai many times in the past several years and have always planned on taking a tour of the island to see other 65% that we have never seen. We flew with Brodi yesterday and were so impressed with his knowledge and history of the island. The fact that he grew up on Kauai made it even more... More
