First thing we did on the island. First time for all 4 of us to ride a helicopter. Fantastic experience! Our pilot was great and full of information. He welcomed our questions and made it a great trip. I HIGHLY recommend this tour!

Great experience had no complaints! Pilot brad was unbelievable smooth flight and even more knowledgeable with the island we were able to see everything we wanted to see and wouldn't have had it any other way! All staff were friendly only complaint was long time after flight to get merchandise but besides that FABULOUS!

It can't get any better than this sightseeing tour! Our pilot, Barrett, was awesome! Very smooth flight. His knowledge of Kauai, the people and the land, was seamlessly added to the trip. His music selections fit into the tour whether it was the beauty of the land, the culture or just the flying experience. His flying expertise brought us close... More

Loved this adventure! Our pilot was awesome, very friendly and knowledgeable. It gave a bird's eye view of Maui. We saw so much more in 60 minutes than our week in Maui would have allowed. The ride was perfectly calm and smooth and we felt entirely safe. We saw whales in the ocean and a rainbow up in the clouds.... More

Very fun and interesting helicopter flight over and around Oahu. 45 minute flight from the airport over absolutely beautiful and very rugged mountains to the northern "wet" end of the island. Was able to fly over the sites where several movies were filmed (Karate Kid II to the latest Godzilla). Was able to fly over Pearl Harbor to see the... More

We flew on Feb 23, 2015, with pilot Geoff, and had a terrific time. There were 4 members in our family, including my 6 year old and 8 year old, they were seated so they could easily see, they had lots of questions for Geoff but he was patient and good humoured in his responses to them. We are prone... More

Flew with Miguel 2/4/2015. He was great. Talked will all of the passengers. Lots of great info about the island, and answered all questions. We were in seats 2 and 3, in the front. They are assigned prior to trip. It was perfect. It did rain lightly during part of the trip. It was interesting to see the changing climate.... More

Blue Hawaiian had great reviews so my husband and I booked with them. We were not disappointed. Barrett our pilot is a native and did a fantastic job. We purchased the video not only for the narrative.

The tour is not cheap and neither my wife nor I had been in a helicopter before, so we were somewhat reluctant. Our reluctance changed to pure excitement once we learned of our pilot's (Brad) credentials and we went airborne. The ride was smooth, yet exhilarating. We learned so much about the island, the people and their culture. One other... More

I hesitated to do the helicopter ride bc of the price but right before we left on our trip to Kauai I heard from a couple people or sources that it was seriously necessary to any trip to the island. You simply can't see the whole island unless you fly or are a crazy hiker person. With a 10 yr... More
