Yeah, it's expensive, but if you really want to see all the big island you have to do this - especially if the volcano is putting on a show and the weather is clear. The finale through the canyons with fantastic waterfalls and shear cliffs was a real thrill. Good company and friendly staff.

This is a fabulous tour of the Big Island that includes volcanos, waterfalls and many beautiful views. The helicopters are first class, clean and comfortable. Safety is a priority. Would have rated the tour a 5 had it not been for our pilot. It's one thing to bring levity to the flight, it's another all together to be continuously flip.... More

Wanted to say a big thanks to Dale and Blue Hawaiian Helicopters for our amazing ride on Sunday! Definitely a big highlight of our visit to the Big Island. Amazing to see such diversity - lava fields, snow, volcanoes and lava flowing into the ocean. Watching a mother and baby whale frolicking in the sea and the majestical waterfalls were... More

We spent the precious day doing a drive around the route we took on our helicopter tour. The road trip was great but the helicopter took us to areas not possible to visit. The volcano covering and viewing the lava hitting the ocean was great. We then headed to the waterfalls by following the coast. This was my favourite part... More

We have seen Hawaii before from ground level and snorkeling, my wife and I decided to see it from the air. The scenery is stunning. The 2 hour trip took us over both volcanoes, the rain forest, the dry arid desert areas of the island and the ocean. Our pilot, Tom, was very knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. Yes, it is...

We booked the Big Island Experience flight and yes it was very expensive. But from the moment we took off till the moment we landed the flight was an amazing experience which was definitely worth the cost. Our pilot (Greg/GO) was friendly and informative. We loved the volcano cone and lava flow but were blown away by the beautiful Kohala... More

Lee and I were so lucky to have Toshi as our pilot. He is savvy, engaging and entertaining. This is my 2nd time in Helicopter, he made people feel safe and enjoy the unforgettable journey. Music was well selected to match the moving scenes, his guide were super informative and fun.

Since most of Hawaii Island is not accessible, from the air is the only way your going to see much of it. I flew with Marco and had a great time on the early morning tour right over the military base in the saddle between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea to Kilauea, then to the lava ocean entry, which was...

We had cloudy and rainy weather on the day of our original booking. It was hard to reach Blue Hawaii on the phone as it seemed that many people were calling, but the staff came to our hotel anyways to inform us of the cancellation. Luckily we had great weather the following day and our pilot Greg was very good... More
