Description

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

In 2001 Blue Hawaiian 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. Blue is the only company on Oahu that offers you this phenomenal, state of the art aircraft.

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

The range of aerial experiences on Oahu is astonishing. In the Honolulu area, there’s legendary Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, and Pearl Harbor. Yet just a few minutes away by air is a tropical paradise most visitors miss, with gorgeous shorelines, deep valleys and cascading waterfalls, pristine sights like Hanauma Bay, Mount Olomana, and the soaring Nuuanu Pali, which will take your breath away with its spectacular undulating ridgelines, and lush green Nuuanu Valley rainforest. How can you truly appreciate all of Oahu’s incredible diversity? You have to see it aboard a Blue Hawaiian Eco-Star.

Duration of Flight: Approximately 45 minutes.

Tour Departures:
Morning - 7:00am - 10:30am
Mid-Day - 10:30am - 1:00pm

I took the 45 minute Oahu tour in September 2017 and can not say enough wonderful things. After having experienced a 12 hour bus tour on Maui, I was keen to explore Oahu in a more time effective manner and this turned out to be the perfect option. The driver picked me up promptly and provided some great commentary on the way to the airport. Upon arrival we were briefed on the safety requirements and given an opportunity to take pictures. Our pilot Brandon was very friendly and his knowledge of the island was fantastic. Giving consideration to all passengers, Brandon made sure he maneuvered the helicopter to maximize photo opportunities for all. I was truly impressed by spectacular landscape and highly recommend this as a way to explore the island. It is well worth the cost.

My kids and I went on a tour of Oahu. 14, 12, two 10 and a 3 year old all had a great time. One kiddo had a bit of motion sickness but the pilot told him to keep his eyed on the horizon and he felt better. Blue Hawaiian helicopters staff was very nice and I appreciated all their help.

I have never experienced such beauty! From the moment we got on to the transfer bus to the departure back to the hotel, it was PERFECT. We were lucky enough to grab front row seats next to the pilot and I'll never forget the thrill of take off, diving, turning and landing. Our pilot (I'll call her lady K... I can't remember her full name) was funny, kind and caring. She included everyone on the flight and ensured every question was answered even the non-verbal ones!!! We booked the complete island experience for $60 minutes on the eco-star. Worth every $. I can't wait to try the one without doors next time. WOW!

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
