Blue Hawaiian Helicopters - Helicopter tour company - Blue Hawaiian Helicopters
As Hawaii's leader in aerial tours for more than a quarter century, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is dedicated to providing superior customer service and exceeding even the strictest safety regulations in its industry.
The company owns a fleet of leading-edge helicopters, including Hawaii’s largest fleet by far of the American Eurocopter EC130 Eco-Star, the most advanced and expensive touring helicopter in the world. The Eco-Star features 23% more interior space than the industry-standard A-Star, vastly increased viewing glass, raised rear seating for enhanced visibility, and 50% noise reduction. In addition, shoulder room in the Eco-Star is comparable to that offered in first-class airliner cabins, allowing for maximum comfort and movement. Every guest flies with BOSE® electronic noise-canceling headsets and enjoys two-way communication with their expert Blue Hawaiian pilot.
One of the Blue Hawaiian’s most popular options is the “Circle of Fire plus Waterfalls” tour on the Big Island. For less than $200 per person, visitors can experience stunning views of the active Kilauea volcano, which has been erupting for nearly 30 years. For a similar price on Maui, guests can opt for the “West Maui Mountains” tour, which takes them into the heart of rainforest valleys and lets them experience waterfalls cascading thousands of feet down sheer cliffs.
On Oahu, Blue’s extended tour provides aerial views of all the best Oahu sights—Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor, Hanauma Bay, the North Shore, and much more, while their “ECO Adventure” tour of Kauai brings visitors incredible views of the spectacular Na Pali coast, Waimea Canyon (the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”), Kalalau Valley, and other phenomenal sights of the world’s most beautiful island.
Recently, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters escorted the President of French Polynesia on a tour of rainforest regions with Hawaii Senator J. Kalani English. The company has flown aerial photography on numerous Hollywood blockbuster films, and won countless awards since it launched in the mid-1980s, including the prestigious Six Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, recognition as “Hawaii’s premiere helicopter tour company” by National Geographic, and being named “The Cadillac of helicopter tour companies” by Frommer’s Hawaii every year since 1996.
