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.

We loved our 45min trip with pilot “Kirsty”! Incredible photo ops and lots of information about the sites we flew over. I now feel I have my bearings of the island. Would 10/10 recommend this company!

"One of the 'MUST DO' activities in Kauai!!"

Very glad I took the helicopter tour in Kauai. I had very limited time in Kauai but wanted to see the island as much as I could. Came across Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tour while browsing Tripadvisor and thought I'd check out their website. After watching some short videos I've decided to book with them. To be quite honest I thought for $200+ USD it's a bit steep considering the experience is roughly one hour. Only after the tour did I realize it was a steal. I got to their location (conveniently located right beside the airport) and they have a very quick check in process. Afterwards we were briefed on safety we boarded the helicopter and off we went. Everyone has to wear headphones as the pilot will be explaining/narrating the whole trip. The feeling I got from the pilot is that he is very experienced, humorous and knowdgeable. We visited various filming spots of Jurassic Park (Jurassic Park theme song playing in the background, how fitting), historic sites and MANY jaw dropping scenic views of the island. This tour is definitely one of my highlights of this trip! HIGHLY recommended!

I've never been in a helicopter before, so why not now? This was the perfect way to see the island from another perspective. Our pilot Chris was great, cracked some jokes and made the tour perfect. I was lucky enough to have a window seat, and the views were simply amazing. One of the coolest things have done to date. Worth it!!

A very professional company. We were lucky to have great weather and actually saw some lava in the Pu'o'o crater. The pilot circled the good views in 2 different directions so everyone had great opportunities for photos from both sides of the helicopter so no-one missed out. Unfortunately the circling also made many people feel sick so wish I had taken some travel sick medication beforehand. Look to the horizon to feel better!

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
