Amazing tour around Kauai

We loved our helicopter tour around Kauai with Scotty. So personable and fun. The views were spectacular. No better way to see the island. I would highly recommend it!

The ride was great, I already reviewed that, but I just looked at the $40 video for the first time - it's bad. The lenses on the helicopter's cameras are terribly dirty film on them leaving the images dull and spotty. There is a huge black dirt spot on one of them for the whole ride. It really ruined it....

Blue Hawaiian Helicopters picked us up at the harbour when we disembarked from the Pride of America. The service as top notch from start to finish. They were professional and well organized. The ride was smooth and we felt safe with our experienced pilot.

Getting to go up in a helicopter for most people is a pretty thrilling and in many cases, once in a life time experience. To be clear, this is a luxury attraction but you do get what you pay for.

Now I only did this trip because it is what my husband wanted to do for a "big" birthday celebration. Helicopters scare me and I was very apprehensive about going but my husband booked the trip before we arrived in Hawaii and I didn't want to be a wimp and pull out. This trip is first class - from the... More

The perfect way to see Kauai is by air. We booked our Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tour from home to get the nice discount. It is located at the airport and is easy to find. They use very nice helicopters. After a pre-flight briefing we boarded our helicopter with a total of six passengers plus the pilot. Our pilot was Beth... More

We reserved this activity on-line a month before arriving in Kauai and was able to take advantage of discounted rate for 3 adults. Instructions say wear black, to avoid reflections on helicopter windows, which we did. We were given the 11am tour. I considered ourselves very lucky that day because the sky cleared up for our outstanding viewing pleasure. Barrett,... More

I was hesitant, I can't ride a Ferris wheel without getting queasy, boy was I wrong, the way the staff prepares you, the demonstrations then getting strapped into the helicopter, I was completely at ease.
