Description

from Blue Hawaiian Kauai Helicopter Tours
According to National Geographic, Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours is “Hawaii’s premiere helicopter tour company.”

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. Blue was the first company on Kauai to offer you this phenomenal, state of the art aircraft.

When you choose Blue on Kauai, you’ll enjoy:
  • Bose® aviation-grade noise-canceling headsets

  • 4-camera digital DVD in-flight recording

  • Two-way communication between you and your expert Blue Hawaiian pilot—each of whom is a State of Hawaii Certified Tour Guide

Treat yourself to a first-class ECO Adventure over the Garden Isle of Kauai in the incredible new American Eurocopter ECO-Star. This state-of-the-art marvel gives you 23% more interior room, individual Business Class style seats, two-way communication with your pilot, and expansive glass for outstanding sweeping views of Kauai's incomparable natural beauty.

Sculpted by nature for six million years, Kauai’s legendary beauty is epitomized by the Na Pali Coast – 14 miles of sea cliffs ascending 3,000 feet above the untamed shoreline, with sheer-walled valleys and cascading waterfalls—and sensational Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” Most of Kauai’s awe-inspiring sights are inaccessible from the ground and can only be seen by helicopter, yet not all helicopters are equal. To truly appreciate Kauai’s epic beauty, you have to experience it aboard a Blue Hawaiian Eco-Star.

Duration of Flight: Approximately 55 minutes.

"Best view on Kauai "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 17, 2019 NEW
We took an early morning tour that started at 7:30. After our safety briefing and preparations we boarded our chopper with pilot Kris. He was very friendly and engaging with us. He gave us a lot of details about the history and we were told what exactly we were looking at and what movies were filmed in those locations. We saw two rainbows close up and recorded everything for our memories. We bought the recorded video as well. The cost is pricey as you might expect for a helicopter tour. The ride is comfortable and the pilot is very professional and puts you at ease. I recommend taking a helicopter tour on Kauai especially. We wanted to see the most magnificent views of Hawaii and we were not disappointed.

If you want to see Kauai in its glory, fullest, and places that no roads have or ever will get to, then this is the trip for you. I recommend going first thing in the morning before any clouds come in. We also saw a whale, which was a bonus. Definitely recommend this trip.

"Blue Hawaiian is the best on the islands "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 16, 2019 NEW
When making our reservation I always knew I would choose Blue Hawaiian. They are the best and most reputable option. We chose the tour leaving from the North Shore. It was an hour ride and covered every aspect of the island. Our pilot was wonderful and so knowledgeable. It is such a breathtakingly beautiful tour! Words can’t do it justice. Highly recommend.

"Lovely flight over the island"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 10, 2019 NEW
Expensive, so do this as a treat. Easy check in, great staff, loved our pilot Kris who took us on a smooth ride over the island. Saw the “Jurassic Park” waterfalls, Waimea Canyon, Na Pali coast and more. Quick, easy and wonderfully run. Book directly or through the hotel concierge. I think it costs the same.

Frequently Asked Questions about Blue Hawaiian Kauai 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.
