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.

With so many to choose from we got a recommendation for Blue Hawaiian from a rep in the industry for Western Canada. He said this was the company to go with. They were the consummate in customer service from our advance call from Canada to the touchdown of our tour with Geoffrey and subsequent pictures of us taken by the staff. All were amiable and personable and at all times we felt that we were in the best of hands. The pilot gives you a bit of his background (thank you for your service, Geoffrey) and answers any and all questions you have during the tour. One bit of advice, if I were to do this again, I would put down the camera, be in the moment, take it all in and buy the video of our flight. It was truly one of the highlights of our lives.

This company is so professional, and so Hawaii. The one-hour tour is the best way to see Kauai - the only way.

"Must do!!"

Took this tour to see all parts of Kauai, especially the Na Pali coast and rainforests only accessible by helicopter, and the views were breathtaking! Beth was our pilot, and gave us a great trip. She was very informative and took us to all the highlights the island has to offer. She even looped around off of Na Pali when we spotted a pod of whales! Helicopters seat six plus the pilot (depending on weight) and all seats offer a great view. Be sure to wear dark colored clothing as bright colors will reflect off the canopy and onto your pictures. They offer a video of your ride for $41, but it's worth it to relive the experience. We were never on a helicopter before, but the ride was fine. Definitely recommend!!

This ride was worth the time and money! The pilots are knowledgeable, kind and clearly know how to make the ride as smooth as possible. There is no better way to get a good feel for the lay of the land than from up above. After our ride we were able to find many of the beautiful spots we saw from above that we may have missed. A great part of our trip

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.
