See the Orchid Isle like you’ve never seen it before, on this incredible Big Island helicopter tour.
Widely regarded as the most beautiful, sun drenched portion of the Big Island, the famed Kohala Coast is surely a sight to behold. Join the expert crew of Blue Hawaiian for a 50 minute Big Island helicopter tour over this pristine and untouched landscape. You’ll explore sea cliffs, the verdant Kohala Mountains, rivers, valleys, waterfalls, and miles and miles of secret beaches.
The Kohala Mountains get up to 150 inches of rain per year at the summit! Watch the scenery change dramatically from the rainforest covered summit, to green ranchland slopes, to sunny beaches and golf resorts. Get an awesome aerial view of famed valleys of Waimano and Waipio with their steep cliff sides and lush interiors. These valleys were home to ancient farms and taro patches, and you can still see remnants of those towns today. Listen as the pilots narrate your Big Island helicopter tour over the clear and quiet Bose headsets. Featuring two-way technology, you and the pilot can communicate and hold dialogue about the sights out the window. Ask lots of questions! The pilots are also State Certified Tour Guides, so they are full of useful information. Check out impressive aerial views of the sea cliffs with waterfalls flowing straight down into the ocean.
Select a seat on either of their two styles of helicopters, the A-Star or Eco-Star. The A-star is a classic. It is the most popular style for air tours in the world. Offering seating for six on a smooth, quiet ride, the A-Star is always an excellent choice. Luxury and comfort seekers prefer the Eco-Star, which showcases a 23 percent larger cabin size. Also excellent in safety and handling, the Eco-Star is truly a first class way to fly.
When you’re ready to explore the mountains and coastlines only visible by air, book your Big Island helicopter tour today. Watch the wonders of nature from your comfortable seat in the sky, as Hawaii reveals itself along the majestic Kohala Coast.
