This is an absolutely breathtaking experience. The staff were friendly, organized and everything was on time. From the moment we lifted off the scenery was spectacular our pilot was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We took the afternoon trip to see the Volcano as well as the Valleys in the north. Stunning! Would highly recommend this tour - it is... More

We took the 2 hour tour over the volcanos and the rain forest. Our pilot, Eric, was very knowledgeable of the island and volcano history. We learned so much! Our only concern/complaint was being on the helicopter with a 5 year old placed near the control panel on the floor (which he planted his foot on) and given a mic... More

My wife and I did the Big Island Spectacular tour with Greg (Gogo) today in the Eco-Star. Although a little pricey, would highly recommend. Greg was an awesome pilot and made the tour what it was. Loved his choice in music too which makes the experience better. Great tour, definitely a must-do.

Although I think Blue Hawaiian is one of the top notch tour companies, I can't say the tour over the volcano was exciting. I found it interesting, but wish there was a little more activity

Marco was our pilot. He was from the same area where my wife and I grew up and live. Marco did an awesome job of making sure everyone was afforded the same great views on the trip. He took time to share information and to go show us some whales as they were moving. What a fantastic adventure.

After some initial hesitation about going for a helicopter ride, a couple we met at our resort recommended that request Ian Robinson as our pilot. We booked a trip but since it was several days in advance we had time to back out, given our nervousness about being in a helicopter. I am so glad we didn't cancel because this... More

This is an amazing way to see the big island - "The Big Island Spectacular" tour (2 hours) allowed a unique view of the currently erupting Kilauea volcano, getting up close and allowing multiple views from all angles. Also enjoyed seeing the other volcanoes, highlands and the amazing lush north coast with its unbelievable topography and waterfalls. It was truly... More

This was an amazing way to see the island. During our tour we saw lava, humpback whales and the landing at Punululu falls was the icing on the cake. A special thanks to our pilot Shane, for a wonderful tour with breathtaking views.
