Great staff. Knowledgeable pilot. Great background music during the flight :) The views were great, despite the overcast condit...ions. Now I want to go back and dive at all those reefs I saw and hike up to those waterfalls. I never realized just how small Pearl Harbor was until I saw it from the air with my own eyes. This is something a visitor should do at least once. If I did it again, I wouldn’t bother taking my own pictures and videos (they take video for you) and just enjoy the view. more

It was the first time in a helicopter ride and let me tell you guys it was the BEST experience EVer in my life. From the quality ...of the staff to the helicopter pilot was Great. I'm very happy I choose Blue Hawaiian, its a must do if you are visiting Oahu. more
From beginning to end, which came too soon, was a delightful ride. Our pilot Julie, made it very informative, very interesting and... a delight to be with. She made us feel at ease and wanting us to come back again to do another helicopter tour on some of the other islands, especially the big island. We both had a wonderful experience, thanks in part to Julie and the staff of Blue Hawaiian. We would definitely recommend this to anyone who really wants to see any of the islands. It's something that we will never forget. more

We stayed in Oahu for a week and it wasn't enough time visit all the placed that I had panned. The helicopter tour was a grea...t way to see the entire island within an hour. The pilot talked about all the major points of the island. Especially looking down the Pearl Harbor was an experience that I never forget. more
This tour is "Spectacular". It was way beyond expectation. The views from above are really breathtaking, and well wort...h the cost. You will not be disappointed!! This was my first helicopter tour and I couldn't be happier with it:) more
We went to Hawaii in 2007. We had to go back because my husband didn't get to take a helicopter tour. The helicopter ride was... the best part of our 8 day stay in Oahu. more
Bill & Debbie Pytak
Wonderful trip. Super pilot. The view great, beyond my expectation. I enjoyed the shuttle from and to the hotel. The trip in the ...air. It was a suprised when i found that we can have a film from it. Really worth the money! more
This was my first time ever taking a helicopter trip or tour of any kind. So I was a tad nervous in doing it. But I said to hell... with it I am going to do it. And I am sooooo glad that I did. The pictures from high above Honolulu was so worth the money and time I spent being a part of this like once in a life time adventure! Julie my helicopter pilot with Blue Hawaiian was a great professional and very friendly and pointed out all the highlights of our 50 minute tour. Blue Hawaiian was the best and for an extra $25 dollars at the end of your tour you can purchase a DVD of your flight with camera's in and out the helicopter. I had a blast and look at my pictures daily from my helicopter tour. I totally recommend this company and tour for memories of a lifetime! Can't go wrong with Blue Hawaiian at all!!! more
We both thoroughly enjoyed our helicopter flight. The pilot was very informative and also friendly. We would defiantly recommend... your company to our friends and family more
I have flown with Blue Hawaiian on the other Islands and have always found the experience to be excellent. This time was no excep...tion. It was a beautiful clear day and our pilot, Kristi (sp), was extremely good at narrating the tour of the Island as she flew and was also very funny. The only disappointment that I had was that the video recorder on the helicopter was broken so I wasn't able to purchase a DVD of our flight. Had I known this before we took off, I would have taken many more pictures. My fault for not asking! more
On our first day we got rained out so we booked for the next day. So glad we did! Saw a rainbow arch across the sky line along wit...h so many water falls. more
A once in a lifetime experience.. From the pickup at our hotel to the drop back after the tour, it was all well organised and prof...essional..the view from the helicopter, and our pilots narration was excellent!! We absolutely loved it!! Superb!! more
Blue Hawaiian made it a truly perfect addition to our holiday with their professionalism, knowledgeable staff and top-service. The... little extras made the difference such as the ability to buy the video immediately after the flight for a very reasonable $40. A great first-time helicopter experience for us and hopefully not the last one! more
I've lived in Hawaii for about 8 years and I thought I've seen everything. Just getting to ride a helicopter was alread...y an amazing experience. Getting to ride it over Hawaii made it even better. I felt like a tourist seeing Hawaii for the first time. I'm also a big fan of Jurasic World and I kinda freaked when I found out they used Blue Hawaii Helicopter for the movie. I would recomend this tour to anyone; even locals. more
In celebration of our 11th Year Anniversary, my husband and I agreed getting on a helicopter tour. At first, I was worried about ...motion sickness, and all these negative thoughts we had in our minds especially that we have young children but as we were heading to the helicopter site, the fear that we've had before is turning to an excitement, even more so after we were checked-in by Vincent, who was very helpful, funny, and was able to answer some of the questions and concerns I had before the flight. The weather was cooperating with us too as it was sunny, bright blue skies, with no high winds considering that there was a storm and strong winds the day before. We were asked to check-in 45 minutes before the flight and I thought that was too early but once we got there, the time actually went by too fast as we watched videos of these great sceneries taken on the flights that got us even more fired up! Adam was our pilot that day and he was very professional, friendly, and informative. He even had us take our time to see the whales as we spotted them swimming in the ocean (we saw 4), and also tons of turtles floating above the water. I like how he communicates with everyone as well and made sure that we are all doing okay. We are local residents by the way, we've been living in Oahu for 19 years and I have never seen the island so remarkably beautiful until we took this flight! It was amazing and I never stopped talking about it! The sceneries were breathtaking, especially the views of Kaneohe Sandbar! Just incredibly stunning, and what a stress reliever! I don't know how else to express myself but our experience was beyond our expectation! I never appreciated Mother Nature as much as I do now so thank you Blue Hawaiian Helicopters for showing us these and the wonderful experience that will truly last a lifetime! Lucky to live Hawaii..INDEED! more
First time on a helicopter and it was the best way to see all of the island. The crew was great and the pilot Christy was awesome.... more

Nothing compares to see the whole Island from above. Definitely must-do for every visitor. Take Eco-Star it is quiet and you fee...l like on the flying carpet. more
pilot was friendly. scenery was great. be aware some passengers might get nauseous!
Best way to see the Island from a birdseye view. From the time we were picked up at our hotel until we returned everyone was very... friendly and helpful. Darren was our pilot and was very informative of the entire island. Gave each side of the helicopter a great view and time for photos as we traveled. more
Amazing. Worth every cent. The pilot Lauren was really entertaining and funny and made the trip that bit more special.
What a great day. The flight was great, pilot was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

This was by far the highlight of our trip. If you want to really see all of Oahu do it from the air. Our pilot Darren was terrifi...c! I was seriously thinking about booking again for the next day....it’s that much fun. more
This was my very first helicopter ride. From the beginning, I had confidence in the pilot and the helicopter. Everyone was fri...endly and helpful. I would do it again. PS FYI - NOT PART OF MY COMMENT You have a typo in your Board Writing Guides in the Comment Writing Standards. You typed "Be through," think you meant thorough. more
Everything ok. Just some delayed pick up at hte airport. Very good service.
Amazing view of Oahu Hawaii! It was such an exciting experience that I've never had before. Our pilot Julie was awesome. She ...made good narration during the whole trip. The only thing that disappointed me was my seat. Seats were allocated randomly, and mine was not a window seat, so that I didn't have the best perspective to take pictures. more
