Do it!
Absolutely incredible experience. Was a little pricey, but definitely worth it. If you have an extra $100, would splurge for one of the two front row seats next fo the pilot. The back row has four seats but is not cramped at all. I was in one of the middle back row seats and still had a great view, so if you don’t get a front row seat - it’s still amazing! Our pilot, Barrett was very knowledgeable about the island (he was born & raised on Kauai) & made sure to rotate the helicopter near big views (aka the Jurassic park waterfall) so that all seats could see perfectly. I had never ridden in a helicopter before & will admit I was a bit nervous but the entire staff was very professional & Barrett was a perfect pilot. I felt entirely safe the whole time. Couldn’t speak more highly of Blue Hawaiian Tours - absolutely recommend!

Must experience in Kauai
- The entire booking process, check in was very straightforward.
- The tour covered almost all aspects of Kauai.
- Our pilot (Greg) kept the entire party of 6 very engaged throughout the tour. Greg made the tour lively and entertaining.
- It would be good to book this tour earlier during the trip so that you get a chance to see the entire Kauai and then select areas which you want to explore more during the remainder of the trip.

The views and our tour guide Chelsea was fantastic. Chelsea was very informative and very friendly. In fact all employees were great. Don't miss doing this if you go to Kauai it is worth every penny.

Great experience. I was a little unsure as this was my first helicopter tour but our pilot Greg was top notch and the tour was excellent. There were 6 of us on the trip but the helicopter used accommodated all of us comfortably.

Great special occasion excursion
My first helicopter ride and everything I was hoping for! The freedom to go into canyons and over mountains is exhilarating. Our pilot Keith new every waterfall and how they were changing that day and week. Covers the entire island with all its different aspects. I don’t know to express what it’s like to fly into the central extinct volcano with vertical yet green walls 3,000’ high, mists above and waterfalls streaming…transcendent? Be aware there are 6 seats, 2 in front with the pilot, 4 in the back. Without question the best seat is front right window. You can pay extra $100 to guarantee front row and I’d say worth it. Also the right side seats are favored 80% of the ride because it’s basically clockwise tour. If you weigh 250+ you will pay a bit extra and take up two spots. They will literally weigh you on site it’s part of flight planning. Window seats can take excellent photos and videos through the windows with iPhone or real camera. They also take a continuous HD stabilized video of the whole flight with an external camera including audio from the pilot and passengers which they will sell to you after for $60. I was happy with my own shots. My wife doesn’t like to fly and gets seasick but had no motion sickness problems and said although she was anxious it was well worth it! We had about 20 seconds of turbulence at one point early and I was worried but it ended and the rest of the ride was very smooth. I was worried they might cancel for weather, we had 15-25 winds and scattered rain (which is like every day in Kauai…) and it wasn’t a problem. We briefly went through a rain shower which was amazing! Mostly sunny. Amazing smooth landing. I highly recommend doing it once and paying for best seats!

Read this to avoid disappointment !
Sep 2021
We booked a helicopter tour for the morning after our arriva in Kaua'i. During breakfast that morning we got a call that our tour was cancelled because of maintenance issues with the helicopter. We rebooked for a few days later. When we arrived we did our check in and safety briefing and as we were about to be led out to the helicopter we were informed that the helicopter had a maintenance issue and we should leave, rebook, and come back another day. Unfortunately this was our last full day in Kaua'i so it was not possible to rebook. We were unable to do our tour, which was a great disappointment.

In summary, this company has a lot of maintenance issues. That said, if you do get to fly it can be a great experience. Next time we will use their 24 hour cancelation policy to book a tour every two days and hopefully actually get to fly on one of them. From experience two reservations are not enough.

Best Helicopter Tour on Kauai
Absolutely the best activity I've ever done. Our pilot, Barrett, was awesome. Great at pointing things out and had a great sense of humor. We sat up front, totally worth the extra $100 a person. Highly recommend!!

Helicopter Adventure
This was my first time on a helicopter and I enjoyed every minute of it. Our pilot, Barrett, was an amazing pilot and a great tour guide. We saw probably about two thirds of the island in an hour. I would highly recommend this tour.

Helicopter Ride a must to see the whole Kauai Island.
The helicopter ride was great. Worth the money to see the whole island and the waterfalls and canyons up close.

Can't miss activity!

This is an incredible experience and can't miss on Kauai! The staff was knowledgable and made us feel safe and secure. We had a safety video and were easily explained how to board the helicopter. The views were absolutely breathtaking with the etherial music. The helicopters were modern and in terrific condition. Our pilot was fantastic and very funny! Definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity!
