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.

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.

"Five stars for pilot Shae"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 13, 2019 NEW
Great trip with pilot Shae, who is probably the best guide we've ever experienced. Flying with Shae was like Jim Nantz calling the Master's, except the scenery is also really incredible. We drove to the top of Waimea Canyon and recommend doing this too, but there's nothing like seeing it from a helicopter. They put together a cool vid from your flight, which we would have purchased had it not been $60. Overall, great experience.

"Ride great, video not so much"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 11, 2019 NEW
I ave this a 3 rating because the flight itself was spectacular. The problem we had was the video that we received. When I played my video (it was a thumb drive), which came in sections of the flight and not all encompassing, the last portion was corrupted. I called BHH in Kauai (where I flew) and they said they'd ship another one out. I received the second one with someone else's flight. At this point I wasn't upset as accidents happen. I called again and they apologized and said they would send another one. I hadn't received it for two weeks and when I called back again to tell them I had received it, I was told that their records showed it was sent. I told them I did not receive it and could they please send another one. The woman I dealt with at Kauai I believe was the manager and she got an attitude telling me "we don't have to send one out", like she was doing me a favor. She said she'd have to call me back. Well it's been a month and I never got a call back. This was very important to me since memories were made and now I can't see part of those memories. My advice is NOT to buy the thumb drive since obviously there's no guarantee it won't be corrupted when you get home.

We highly recommend taking a helicopter tour your first day on the island. Our pilot, Jason, gave us a thrilling tour of so many beautiful and breathtaking highlights of the island as well as sharing many interesting facts. .

"Spectacular view of the island"

Reviewed September 10, 2019 NEW
I was hesitant to go on a helicopter but this is a must do activity. The scenery is awesome and the music that accompanies the ride is soothing and so serene. I did this ten years ago, not this trip to Hawaii but I am sure the company is still a pleasant experience for all.

"Bucket list!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 10, 2019 NEW
We were impressed with the very thorough check-in! Our pilot, David, was very informative and humorous. I was worried that this trip would be turbulent, but did not have any indication of motion sickness. At one point you can see across the entire island. You will fly into the crater of Kilauea, see Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali coast!! Don't miss this trip!!

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.
