How can you truly appreciate all of Oahu’s incredible diversity? You have to see it aboard a Blue Hawaiian Eco-Star.

We debated about whether or not to purchase this excursion. I’m apprehensive about helicopters and heard it was dangerous with the changing winds around Hawaii. After careful research we decided to take the plunge and book Blue Hawaiian. With two kids - teen girl and 8 year-old boy I decided to go. It did not disappoint. It was a fabulous ride and a terrific way to fully experience the majestic views of the island and all its glory and colors. We took the one hour tour which was perfect. The only comment was that half way into it my son got motion sickness. We were prepared - thanks to Blue Hawaiian- but next time I’ll have the Sea Band BEFORE we fly. My son never has had motion sickness before so this was a new experience. The Sea Bands and Dramamine were sold in the gift store so that was a life saver! We had the shuttle service to and from our hotel. They arrived right on time. The tour itself was incredible- we even saw two Humpback whales! The pilot Kristi took care to lessen the bumpiness and extra views so both sides could see. She was an expert pilot and we felt safe. She was welcoming and funny. She made the experience great! We had a chance to see a waterfall, beautiful beaches, hills and valleys, Pearl Harbor and so much more. I think this just made our trip to Hawaii that much more special because we could see how it is connected and works on the island. The ground crew gave us a safety video and strapped us in - they covered everything. Just be sure to wear dark (black tops) to not have the sun reflect off the window. You could purchase a video of your tour and a photo. Bring extra cash! And they sell cute stuffed aviator bears and shirts etc. I’d say it’s well worth it to pay for a quality pilot! I loved it and I’m thrilled we had a chance to go! I’d do it again!

My husband and I spent 4 days in Oahu on our way back from Alaska. We wanted to see as much of the island as possible- so what better way than by helicopter. We took an amazing flight over the high points of the island; seeing mountains, rain forests, beaches & agriculture. The pilot was brilliant; she was very experienced and had a wide knowledge of the island’s history and culture. Very good service, safety, efficiency and knowledge. A must do!

Frequently Asked Questions about Blue Hawaiian Oahu 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 the Eco-Stars, since there are no cabin partitions that would block part of the view as is the case on other type
