TOURS
HELICOPTER / AIR TOURS

From Waikoloa cross the Alenuihaha channel to Maui and view Haleakala Crater before landing at our Kahului Heliport for a brief visit.

Explore the largest rainforest in the United States seeing hundreds of waterfalls in Maui’s lush Hana rainforest.

After crossing back to the Big Island you’ll fly along the towering Kohala sea cliffs and explore the dramatically deep and meandering valleys of the Kohala Mountains.

Beautiful waterfalls cascade thousands of feet into the rainforest below and the remnants of ancient Hawaiian settlements are still visible. (6 passenger minimum). 

HIGHLIGHTS

BLUE HAWAIIAN'S FLEET 

  • Choose either A-Star or Eco-Star Helicopters.
  • Our aircraft incorporate all the latest in cutting-edge technologies, materials, systems and avionics, and offer incomparable passenger comfort and fantastic sweeping views.

ECO-STAR 

  • The introduction of the incredible new Eco-Star is the dawn of a new era in helicopter touring.
  • Since the late 1980s, the Airbus A-Star has been the tour helicopter of choice for professional tour operations worldwide. In Hawaii it is the industry standard—favored by all the top helicopter tour companies for its open cabin design that affords a 180º sweeping view for each passenger.
  • This feature has been further enhanced in the revolutionary new Airbus Eco-Star—the first touring helicopter of the 21st Century.

A-STAR

The AS350 is the most utilized tour helicopter in the world, and all of them look virtually the same. The only significant difference is the type of engine employed. There are four variants of this model:

  • AS 350B2: Used by Blue Hawaiian, Safari Aviation and Island Helicopters. This is the most powerful model A-Star and is an original manufacturer model. Employs the Ariel 1D1 engine rated at 712 Shaft Horse Power.
  • AS 350BA: Used by Air Maui, Makani Kai and Jack Harter. This is an original manufacturer model. Employs the Ariel 1B engine rated at 641 Shaft Horse Power.
  • AS 350FX: Used by Sunshine and Makani Kai Helicopters. This is not an original manufacturer model but utilizes an FAA approved conversion to the Honeywell LTS 101 600 engine rated at 650 Shaft Horse Power.
  • AS 350 AllStar: Used by AlexAir. This is not an original manufacturer model but utilizes an FAA approved conversion to the Allison 250-C30M engine rated at 650 Shaft Horse Power.

The cabins in all of these AS350 models are quite similar, but Blue Hawaiian's A-Stars afford increased comfort – with BOSE® aviation-grade noise-cancelling headsets, passenger microphone, inside camera integrated to the live tour video, and more. Safety enhancements for the pilot include a state-of-the-art terrain awareness warning system and emergency pop-out floats to enable safe landing on water.
