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.

"Airsick passenger"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed February 13, 2020
We were in the 2nd row. I was at the right window, my husband next, a young guy and then his friend at the left window. Shortly before take off he mentioned he gets airsick, but was trying again. Let's just say this was a huge mistake! He was sick the entire flight and vomiting throughout the flight. My husband was next to him and had to see and smell it. I could look at the coastline without seeing him vomiting. I felt sorry for him, but more for us. I feel the pilot should have returned him instead of submitting us to this. It's expensive so it was money down the drain. The company would not do anything about refund or even partial one. It was basically "Sorry, that's the luck of the draw" Luckily we did get a 10% refund from the company that booked it for us at the Aston Kaanapali Shores.

We took the Complete Island tour and it was incredible! We saw the nicest waterfalls and we got to explore the West Maui Mountains that are not accessible by foot or car. I highly recommend. Rick was an amazing tour guide.

"Maui Island Tour"

We went on the full 90 minute island tour but couldn’t fly around the east end of the island due to weather conditions, so we were given the option to fly to Molokai to make up for that air time. On the way to Molokai, we saw the resident “Great White Shark” lounging close to the ocean surface, which was absolutely amazing. The tour was fabulous and our pilot, Deryk, was the best! We highly recommend Blue Hawaiian for an unforgettable trip!

Frequently Asked Questions about Blue Hawaiian Maui 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.
