About Blue Hawaiian Helicopters

Blue Hawaiian Helicopters flies visitors on thrilling and exhilarating aerial tours of Hawaii’s legendary islands, some of the world’s most beautiful tropical destinations. The company offers a range of aerial tours of the state’s four main islands, offering guests panoramic vistas of such attractions as Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head on Oahu, Kilauea volcano on the Big Island, the world’s tallest sea cliffs on Molokai, the Na Pali Coast on Kauai, and Mt. Haleakala and the Hana rainforest on Maui. Only Blue Hawaiian serves all of Hawaii’s main islands, and it has been Hawaii’s air-tour leader for more than 25 years. Tours generally last from half an hour to two hours; in addition, special charters can be arranged.

The state-of-the-art American Eurocopter aircraft flown by Blue Hawaiian, the EC130 Eco-Star and AS350 A-Star, are especially well-suited for aerial touring, with expansive windows, plush seating, and no internal walls, posts, or other obstructions. Guests are outfitted with Bose® aviation-grade noise-canceling headsets and enjoy two-way communication with their expert pilot, who is also a State of Hawaii Certified Tour Guide. Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is especially proud of its fleet of EC130 Eco-Stars with expanded interior space, business-class seating, panoramic glass, and a 50% reduction in noise on the ground. All aircraft are also outfitted with state-of-the-art digital video systems, including three external cameras and one inside the cabin, so that passengers can relive their tours exactly as they happened.

Travel professionals have showered Blue Hawaiian Helicopters with accolades. The prestigious Frommer’s Hawaii has bestowed its coveted “Recommended” rating on the company since 1996, and calls it “the Cadillac of helicopter tour companies.” National Geographic, in its book The Ten Best of Everything, characterizes Blue Hawaiian as “Hawaii’s premiere helicopter tour company.” One of the most impressive awards came from the Travel Channel, which ranked Blue Hawaiian’s tours of the Big Island’s Kilauea Volcano at the very top of its list of the ten best aerial tours in the world.
