Description

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

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. Blue was the first company on Kauai to offer you this phenomenal, state of the art aircraft.

When you choose Blue on Kauai, you’ll enjoy:
  • Bose® aviation-grade noise-canceling headsets

  • 4-camera digital DVD in-flight recording

  • Two-way communication between you and your expert Blue Hawaiian pilot—each of whom is a State of Hawaii Certified Tour Guide

  • The most honored mechanics and customer service in the industry

Treat yourself to a first-class ECO Adventure over the Garden Isle of Kauai in the incredible new American Eurocopter ECO-Star. This state-of-the-art marvel gives you 23% more interior room, individual Business Class style seats, two-way communication with your pilot, and expansive glass for outstanding sweeping views of Kauai's incomparable natural beauty.

Sculpted by nature for six million years, Kauai’s legendary beauty is epitomized by the Na Pali Coast – 14 miles of sea cliffs ascending 3,000 feet above the untamed shoreline, with sheer-walled valleys and cascading waterfalls—and sensational Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” Most of Kauai’s awe-inspiring sights are inaccessible from the ground and can only be seen by helicopter, yet not all helicopters are equal. To truly appreciate Kauai’s epic beauty, you have to experience it aboard a Blue Hawaiian Eco-Star.

Duration of Flight: Approximately 55 minutes.

Tour Departures:
Morning - 7:00am - 10:30am

"Kaua'i from the sky!"

I had mixed feelings about touring Kaua'i by helicopter, as I feared spoiling the beauty and tranquility of this stunningly beautiful wonder of nature. I figured that I would atone in subsequent days by exploring the island on foot--and I did. But I didn't regret the helicopter tour that my wife and I took with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. There are better ways of exploring the island (on foot, by boat) but there is no better way of getting a rapid overview of what you might want to explore in greater detail after the flight. And for people who have mobility issues, it's the only way. It's not cheap (How could it be?) but you get your money's worth: a friendly ground crew, a highly qualified, knowledgeable and interesting pilot, a state-of-the-art helicopter (Airbus), and access to the most beautiful sights in Kaua'i. If you're a Vietnam veteran who misses the open-door, sit-on-your-helmet, Apocalypse Now kind of helicopter adventure, you might not find this to your liking, but, hey, you're older now, and it might be nice to take advantage of the climate control and the Bose noise-cancelling headsets. And for you photographers, the window views are expansive, there are no bad seats and you can take plenty of glare-free photos. So got for it. You won't meet Robert Duvall, but you will most definitely be spared the smell of napalm!

This is a first class operation all the way !!! I have been with many air jockeys but this one is about the finest civilian pilots I've ever flown with. His name was Matthew. The company itself has no comparison to any of the others, totally satisfying experience

Blue Horizon provides helicopter tourism flights throughout the islands. We chose to take their flight on a visit to Kauai because so much of the beautiful island is unreachable by land. Blue Horizon presents totally professional services in spotless equipment flown by personable and informative pilots. Our lasting memories are from our time at Blue Horizon.

Frequently Asked Questions about Blue Hawaiian Kauai 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.
