The 2 hours flight is a MUST DO on Big Island. It surpassed my expectations by far! Spectacular view into the lava lake of Kilauea and Pu'u 'O'o Crater. Amazing close ups of the lush, green valleys and incredibly high waterfalls up in the north of the island. Super friendly and knowledgable pilot Toshi. Carefully selected music added to the... More

It's expensive. Let's get that out of the way. We debated about this aspect but in the end did it and I am so verybgrayefyl. The sights are amazing, you can get a recording of your flight, and you see parts of the island you can't see any other way. Our pilot was great. Be serious about not wearing white.... More

We took our boys, ages 13 and 16, on the Big Island Spectacular, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! If you are already splurging on the helicopter trip, you MUST go all the way, and book the optional waterfall landing!!!!!!!!!!!! The helicopter lands in front of a huge waterfall, and you are surrounded by jungle on all sides, very "Jurassic Park", very secluded. Our pilot... More

Although not inexpensive, this is a must-do when on the Big Island. The pilot/tour guide was excellent at showing and explaining things we overflew including the fresh lava flow and the active caldero. Another party on our flight were locals and he made special effort to allow them to find their home outside Hilo. Highly recommended.

We had the best time on Blue Hawaiian Helicopters on the Big Island. Everything was organised very professionally, and our pilot Marco was fantastic!! I could not recommend this trip enough! We saw lava and the volcano steaming, and we also saw some lovely waterfalls, including one of Marco's secret favourites. We were on the cruise ship, and he even... More

This was the highlight of the trip. We had 7 people on one heli. Yes it was expensive$550+ a person. It was worth it. Listen to the instructions the people who schedule the trip give you. It will make sense when your in the heli. We did the two hour tour and went over the lava and volcanoes into Hilo.... More

We did the 7:00 am two hour flight on 7/21/2016. Our pilot was Jason and he did an excellent job. We felt safe the entire time and saw so much beautiful scenery. A great opportunity to see the volcano with lava flowing if you don't want to hike it.
