According to National Geographic, Blue Hawaiian Helicopter is “Hawaii’s premiere helicopter tour company.”

Your tour will start and end at Blue Hawaiian’s beautiful, multi-million dollar Hawaii Operations Center, located at the Kahului heliport.

In 2001 Blue introduced the 21st-century “quiet-technology” Eco-Star helicopter to Hawaii, featuring first-class seating for every guest, an expansive cockpit, and incomparable panoramic views.

Whether you choose one of our Eco-Stars or sleek, customized A-Stars, you’ll enjoy:

Here are emerald rainforests and the moon-like vistas of Mt. Haleakala, the rolling Alpine-like meadows of Upcountry and the jagged cliffs and cascading waterfalls of the West Maui Mountains. Not to mention Maui’s sister isle, Molokai, home to the world’s tallest sea cliffs! Yet most of Maui’s magnificent hidden secrets are inaccessible except by air, and nobody knows how to show them to you like Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours.

Although I had been to Maui before, my husband had not and we wanted to do something special that would be unforgettable for the both of us. Well... we found it, and did it, and it was an incredible experience. If you have the opportunity to book the Maui Spectacular, please please please do... you will NOT regret it.

We booked the Maui spectacular to see the whole island. This was a perfect way to see the island, with a nice little stop for pictures and wine! We saw places on the island that are complete inaccessible by foot, from the dry side to the magnificent waterfalls. Our pilot was knowledgeable and skillful, making for a great trip. We booked the A-star and were upgraded to the Eco-Star at no charge without question. Highly recommended.

"Don't Hesitate -- Do It -- Great Tour"

I could go on and on. Is it expensive, yes, it it totally worth it, yes. YOu won't regret it. Suffice to say, it's one of the most awesome tour experiences I've ever had. The flight was great, the pilot / tour guide was amazing, the safety briefing, on and off boarding seamless. DO IT! I recommend Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours without equivocation. We did the West Maui and Molokai tour. Awesome. Also, it could be more, it should be less expensive, but go ahead and spend the $40 for the HD video of the tour -- your pics won't suffice.

We went on a West Maui/Molokai tour and it was great! Schedule your helicopter tour early during your vacation, so that if the weather doesn't cooperate you can still get your tour in. Our first trip up was cancelled because of clouds and I'm so glad that we rescheduled on a good day. I would have hated to have missed it. There are so many things that you can see from the air that you would otherwise miss. We were the last trip up for the day for our pilot, so he seemed a little lackluster, but he still gave a pretty good running commentary and turned the helicopter so that everyone got a chance to see the water falls, canyons, etc. Everyone at Blue Hawaiian was very professional and friendly and the trip was very safe!

Frequently Asked Questions about Blue Hawaiian Maui Helicopter Tours

Do you make a video of our actual tour? How long is it?
Every flight is captured on a high-quality DVD. Each helicopter is equipped with four cameras; three external and one in the cabin. The video recording begins during the boarding process. On the video, you'll most likely first see yourself as you approach the aircraft for boarding. To orchestrate the most interesting video, the pilot chooses between the forward, side or internal camera as the flight progresses. The cabin camera, for example, usually shows you right after lift-off as it is so much fun to capture our guests’ expressions of amazement. The recording is continuous until landing and includes digital quality music chosen to complement the changing scenery, plus all the pilot's narration. The video is available for purchase right after you return from your flight.

What should we wear?
Our helicopters are temperature-controlled so dress comfortably but wear dark clothing to minimize any window reflections. If your flight includes a landing at higher elevations, bring a sweater in case it's chilly. Hats are not allowed to be worn around the helicopters as they can fly up into the rotors and damage the aircraft. We will be happy to hold any hats for you until you return from your tour.

Do you recommend taking anti-motion sickness medication?
If you are particularly prone to motion sickness, taking a precautionary anti-motion sickness medication is a good idea. However, our flights are very smooth and turns are slow and gentle. This is a professional scenic tour, not a thrill ride. Most people do not experience motion sickness and do not need an anti-motion sickness medication.

Will we be the only ones in the helicopter? How is seating arranged?
Unless you charter the complete helicopter you will be sharing the flight with other guests. We try to seat couples and families side-by-side as much as possible. We cannot guarantee particular seating as it is often dictated by our FAA approved “weight and balance” program. However, visibility from every seat is excellent in both our A-Stars and Eco-Stars, since there are no cabin partitions that would block part of the view as is the case on other types of helicopters.
