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.

"Bucket Half-Empty "
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

Riding in a helicopter was on my bucket list. I had recently been skydiving so wanted to add a helicopter ride to my completed list. I decided to do so while on Kauai. It wasn't inexpensive but I thought flying along the coast in the helicopter would be wonderful. However, most of the tour consisted of hovering at different places which lended itself to motion sickness. Even while along the coast we moved it a very slow pace and the pilot would turn and hover often. I will say the pilot was fantastic and the staff was also very nice. I had just wish there would be more excitement to the trip.

"A must-do when in Kauai"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 22, 2017 NEW
I knew as soon as we booked our Kauai trip that we had to do a helicopter tour, and i was right. It is well-worth the price. We did ours near the end of our trip, so it was awesome to get an aerial view of all the places we visited. The Jurassic Falls were breathtaking. Our pilot/tour guide was very friendly, professional and informative. I'm glad we took their advice to wear dark colors. All of our photos turned out really well despite being taken through a window. I do get motion sickness, and wish I would have taken a stronger dose of Dramamine, but still enjoyed the flight. I would book another tour if we came back, because I can't imagine views like this get old.

"Volcano and waterfalls experience "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 19, 2017 NEW
At first, the thought of spending USD589 is daunting, but the 2 hour experience is unforgettable and you quickly forget about the cost. Our pilot, Shane was very knowledgeable and answered everyones questions during the flight. It took some time for us to get to the volcano, but there was plenty to look at and Shane shared a lot of information as we flew towards the horizon. We arrived at the volcano and mother nature put on a show for us and Shane circled the crater ensuring all 6 passengers got to see the red glow of the lava. We followed the smoke plumes escaping from the lava vents to where it flows into the ocean and we again circled so everyone got a good look. We then continued down the spectacular coast and it became clear that our pilot had left the best until last. Shane expertly manoeuvred the helicopter into deep valleys with towering waterfalls which were hard to believe. We skipped over one valley after another with more beautiful waterfalls before taking us back.

"Jurassic Falls"

This was my first helicopter tour and I'm glad we chose this one. Our tour guide was very informative and was a good pilot. The falls were beautiful and did remind me of Jurassic Park. You also had a full tour of the island which is beautifully breathe taking. I would definitely do it again.

"Highly Recommend"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 18, 2017 NEW
We started our trip with the helicopter tour and we were so impressed. It was great to see the island from above (especially since most of the island is not accessible unless you are in a helicopter). We were able to get a great overview of what to expect from the island, where we would be visiting and tips from a local. I highly recommend.

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.
