“Worth the trip, even for the queasy flyer.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

We did the complete island tour. Our pilot, Emery, was attentive to all 6 passengers questions and was a wealth of historical knowledge.
We were seated so that everyone on board, kids aged 7 & 10 included, could see clearly out at least one window. Safety briefing was understandable and didn't drag on forever. Then we were out to the helicopter. Be prepared, you take nothing but cameras & sunglasses with you, everything else stays behind.
As one prone to motion sickness, I was told it would be fine, but in retrospect I would've enjoyed the flight far more with gravol on board LOL. The winds today likely contributed to that.
The rainforest views of never ending waterfalls were breathtaking and hovering over breaching whales was spectacular. I'm glad we went, but won't be lining up again without my friend gravol :)

“Blue Hawaiian - West Maui and Molokai Trip”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The West Maui and Molokai trip was AMAZING!!! Very Beautiful. Mike, our pilot, was great and provided great information. Choosing the the "EcoStar" helicopter was definitely worth the money. Every one of our family of 4 had great views in all directions. Mike even spotted and showed us some great views of a Whale and it's new born baby whale. :) Mahalo to Blue Hawaiian Helicopters

“How could you not like this!!!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

I have taken four helicopter flights now and this one stands head and shoulders above the others. The staff and welcome were just spot on, the pilot very well educated on the history of Maui and Molokia, there also wasn't the obvious "how can we extract as much money from people as possible!" which I have had from other heli tours. The inflight DVD was a reasonable $25 also. High recommended!!!

“Wow! A tour well worth the cost.”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is a top notch helicopter tour company. The entire staff was very friendly. Our pilot was excellent and answered any and all questions tossed his way. The ground staff was excellent about taking pictures and ensuring everyone's safety. We toured the entire island in an Eco star heli. While our video of the tour is not HD quality, it is great to be able to watch and listen to our own personal tour. We also bought the National Geographic DVD which is a much better quality image, though it includes other islands.
