If you are visiting the Big Island for only a couple of days I definitely recommend this tour, that would your easiest and more espectacular way to see it all, rather than driving around that would take longer. Try to get Toshi as your pilot, he is not obit knowledgeable but also entertaining and makes you feel safe at all times! Totally worth the price!

We had an absolutely amazing experience on the 8am tour with pilot Kai on Sept 29th a mere few hours before Kilauea erupted that afternoon. Conditions were perfect and allowed us to enter some of the narrow valleys on the NE side of the island and see some spectacular waterfalls (not always possible if too windy). Capt Kai was the best, both in pilot skills as well as knowledge of the volcanos, geology, Hawaiian history and culture. Highly recommend this trip. It’s not cheap but the only true way to see the big island.

My husband and I had an incredible experience doing the Big Island Spectacular Tour with the waterfall landing. Shane was a great host and pilot, and had plenty to tell us about everything that we were seeing. He also had excellent photography skills, great taste in music, and gave us a great recommendation for a breakfast restaurant afterwards as a bonus. Thanks so much, Blue Hawaiian for a great tour!!

My two daughters and I went on a northern 80 minute tour with Blue Hawaiian Helicopter this past Saturday. It was our last full day on the big island and it actually took me the whole 10 days we were there to talk my daughter’s into agreeing to go. Matt was our pilot and he was great. He was informative and talked to us the whole time. There was some major wind that day and the ride was still great. We got to see parts of the island that otherwise we’d never get to see. I would definitely use Blue Hawaiian again. Thanks for a memorable experience.

Wesley was an excellent pilot and took us over craters and inactive volcanoes for views we would have never been able to see on foot. Not to mention, he paired the music with the scenery to make for an exceptional experience. While there were no active volcanoes and lava flowing, it was still a spectacular site. You can tell Wesley absolutely loves what he does. He and the rest of the crew make sure everyone feels safe and is able to relax and enjoy the ride. Absolutely recommend if you're on the Big Island.
