The range of aerial experiences on Oahu is astonishing. In the Honolulu area, there’s legendary Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, and Pearl Harbor.

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

The highlight of our trip was a tour of the island by helicopter. Different view and flying over USS Missouri and to see the sunken ship under the Pearl Harbor museum was more than words can say. The waterfall and the lush mountains were beautiful.

The ride was smooth and the pilot Spencer was nicely experienced and knowledgeable. You get to see a lot of the island, but wish we could spend more time at the Arizona. I would recommend the 60 minute flight and enjoy!

Thank you so much Blue Hawaiian Helicopters for the epic tour around Oahu. The value was amazing and my Wife and I will never forget this experience. Christopher, our pilot, was superb. He helped everyone to relax and have a great time. The music was fun and added to the experience. Very comfortable shuttle to and from the airport too. We will highly recommend you.

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
