We took the Grand Tour of the island last week. Marco, our pilot, is a pro. He was a great guide of the island. He took us to see the volcano and the incredible hose of fire on the south side of the island. Because of rains on the eastern coast, we weren't able to see the sites there. However,... More

We knew when we were visiting the Big Island that we'd have to do a Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour. We chose the "Big Island Spectacular" because it offered the best viewing helicopter and the longest tour of the island. We had an amazing pilot who had the task of not only flying the helicopter, but he was conducting an 'aerial... More

While it is a little pricey, it is one of these things that you should experience once in your life time We went to many places that you can't get to without a helicopter. And as a bonus, we saw a whale with two babies

I can't really add much more than the other 5 star reviews. But I do want to add that I was scared of doing this tour. For those of you who do not like roller coasters or who have sensitive stomachs... you will be FINE on this ride! I HATE the feeling of my stomach dropping. This was a smooth... More

I did not really want to go because it is sooo expensive. The other 3 people I was with however wanted to. It is a treat for sure - especially since there is active lava right now. The trip was uneventful and smooth - I took a lot of Gravol 2 hours and 1/2 hour before. The pilot - Jason... More

We did the Big Island Spectacular with Eric as our pilot and it was such a great way to see the whole Island. Eric was a fantastic pilot and guide, very knowledgeable and entertaining and went out of his way to make sure all sides got a great view of the hottest spots. This particular tour would be my recommendation... More

Greg O was a great pilot for our one hour Eco-Star helicopter tour from Waikoloa. He immediately calmed the nerves of our worried passengers as we began the tour on a slightly windy but very clear day. He provided just the right amount of commentary and eagerly responded to any questions. He clearly loves his job and the Big Island.... More

We had a great flight despite it being fairly windy, our pilot Julie had us hanging on for dear life when she took us for a close look at the waterfall!!! Bit too close for my liking but what an amazing pilot! But the trip was great and would definitely recommend it Julie was great and informative
