My friend and I decided to splurge and go on a two hour Eco-Star heli tour of the Big Island. It was exciting and marvelous to see most of the Island in this way. We saw the active volcano, the dormant volcano, as well as the gorgeous Waimea Valley and waterfalls and eastern coastline. I highly recommend this to others... More

I went years ago and it was one of the most memorable vacation moments of my life. You can't beat the views of the mountains, waterfalls, and rest of the island, and our pilot was also entertaining. A trip I will never forget!

Our first ever helicopter ride and tour took place yesterday and we were blown away. We took the West Maui and Molokai tour, it was absolutely spectacular ! Just seeing those incredibly deep valleys, the waterfalls, the jagged mountains, the coastline, the whales, sea turtles and mantra rays in the ocean form above was beyond our expectations. We had a... More

Hawaii's beauty can not be seen and fully understood until you fly over these islands. Must see with your own eyes the landscape, the seascape in 3D and the helicopter ride is the way to go. It is expensive, understandably not everyone can afford to pay over $200.00 for a 45 minute ride, but if you can, you should go.... More

The West Maui/Molokai tour is a great way to see the inaccessible seacliffs in the North Shore of Molokai and the valleys within West Maui. I took the noon tour and we lucked out with great weather. The trip starts from the Kahului heliport ($7 parking) which is somewhat confusing to find because the address they gave is not in... More

I’m so glad you were able to fly with us and thank you for your excellent review! The airport charges for parking, inside the gate. The address on the homepage of our website should now get you directly to our location with a GPS. You’ll also find a downloadable .pdf map next to the address. This tour turns around just... More

I was terrified to get on a helicopter. Did it because Hubby wanted to so bad. It was spectacular! Smooth and comfortable and the scenery was spectacular! I would do it again in a heartbeat. I think our pilot's name was Chris. Thanks for the wonderful ride Chris and Blue Hawaiian!

We just had an amazing flight with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters around the big island. The live volcanoes were incredible to see up close and the valley and waterfalls were truly nothing short of spectacular. Our pilot, Jason, was a wealth of knowledge. It was a mini course on Hawaiian geology, topography and culture to boot. We were lucky with weather... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 45-minute helicopter ride. Blue Hawaiian is very professional and safety minded. Greg did a great job of telling us about the volcano, then took us over some beautiful waterfalls, then out over the water to see Humpback whales! Be sure to wear dark clothing per their website, but be aware that skin counts, too! I wore... More

$275 each for 45-50 minute ExoStar ride (1/3 time over ocean, not Maui) ultimately did not seem worth it to us. Yes it was a one-of-a-kind unique view of the beautiful west Maui mountains and the Molokai cliffs, but the pilot did very little "narration" of the sights and overall it seemed very impersonal and methodical. You can pay an... More

I'm so sorry that your tour did not seem to be worth the cost. I'd love to know which pilot you flew with as we check our flight videos on a regular basis and I'm baffled at which one does not give good narration. We do ask our pilots to be sensitive to those times when the music should be... More
