Super friendly and organized staff. Well thought of details, safe, and secure. Pilots were more than just pilots - an enormous wikipedia of information and entertainment. Definitely worth the money (Big Island Spectacular) and fulfilled my childhood dream of riding in a helicopter over the volcanoes of Hawaii!

After having an amazing experience with Blue Hawaiian tours on Kauai, we were really looking forward to a similar experience on the Big Island of Hawaii. We booked the 1 hr. 45 min. Big Island Spectacular tour with an optional 15 min. stop at Hilo. The tour was on 2/19/2016 and started out at the Waikoloa site. Evidently our shuttle... More

From the shore to the volcano lava craters to whales then into and over the valleys -- this was awesome beyond belief. Pilot was very professional, gave a full commentary including background music. Accessable. Do not miss this one -- and be certain to buy the HD video of your flight --- it is priceless!

We took a two hour tour of Hawaii and must admit that it was the highlight of our trip. Pilot, Greg, was skillful and entertaining, showing us volcanoes, valleys and whales on our tour of the island. Words and photos do not do justice to what you see on this flight. We were fortunate to have clear weather which enabled... More

Has some trepidations about this two hour tour, but it was magnificent. Well structured, pilot Greg was fun and highly informative. Saw things we have only heard about. Not cheap, but this is money well spent.

Informative, pleasant, got everyone involved, knowledgable, etc. He was the best pilot we have had out of our three trips. Maneuvered to see the lava lake and mini fountains at pu' pu',... More

Booked online and arrived at our timeshare at Kings Land Hilton and could see the helicopters flying over the highway. We booked the Big Island Spectacular with waterfall landing. It was the best part of our trip. After this experience we were better able to appreciate the entire island and all the nature around. We took off from Waikoloa and... More
