Awesome experience
Nov 2019
This was a great experience. Was nervous a bit but got over it as soon as the helicopter left the ground. Our pilot was knowledgeable of the island. If you decide to get the usb drive of the tour, make sure the audio is on the drive. Each file was approximately 10 minutes, 5 minutes in on each file we lost sound. Disappointed as this was an extra we paid for the memory and only have part of the voice. The tour itself though was good.

COMPLETE SCAM - AVOID THIS COMPANY!
Dec 2019
I paid for a full tour of Oahu via helicopter with the concierge at my hotel. He insisted that this was the BEST way to see Pearl Harbor. First problem - this is a lie! The helicopter tour I did barely even flew near Pearl Harbor and there was certainly nothing about the view that was special. Second problem - the van was REALLY late in picking me up at the hotel which was part of the package. Third problem - when I arrived at Blue Hawaiian, we waited a crazy long time to get things going. But, once we watched the safety video, I was called over to the desk and told that I needed to pay another $100 (I had already paid $375 for the tour) in order to sit in the front - and not next to a kid that was on the flight. They saw that I was solo and basically threatened that I pay extra or that I would be seated next to this young kid and it would be miserable. I told them right then and there that this was a complete scam to shake down people for more money. The girl at the desk actually laughed at me! I didn't want to sit next to someone else's child, so I felt that my only option was to pay the extra $100. What other company threatens customers like that - pay or we will sit you somewhere that sucks!?

Then ... they sat me in the front middle which was hands down, the worst seat in the helicopter. Visibility was poor at best. The pilot was boring. The helicopter was so HOT and had no air (and a vicious smell of oil) - it was pure misery.

Avoid this experience - it's NOT worth it!!!

Amazing experience!
At first I was terrified about this excursion but, it was something my husband and children really wanted to do. My fears were quickly put at ease when I saw the professionalism and attention to safety! I felt comfortable knowing our pilot was trained in the military! Our ride was smooth and informational. We saw gorgeous views all over the island! So grateful that I faced my fears, it was so worth it!

Good tour, shorter than advertised by ten minutes. Middle seats in the back are not good.
Good tour, if you get a middle seat, you can’t see much. It was a very hot ride today and that made it uncomfortable for all of us. We asked if the could cool it down and the pillow said he couldn’t do anything about it. There are four seat in the back, so only the two door seats have good views, the center seats can’t see much. The pilot was good and we felt safe and the ride was to be 65 minutes and it was only 55. I wouldn’t do it again.

Watch the seat you are allocated
Dec 2019
Paid in full for a 45 minute helicopter tour of Oahu and was looking forward to what should have been one of the highlights of our visit. Unfortunately, I was allocated the worst seat in the helicopter (seat 4) on the right hand side. The sights for the majority of the tour are on the left hand side. So, my tour consisted of around 40 minutes of ocean. There was an acknowledgement when we got to Pearl Harbour, at the end, that the helicopter was going to swing around so I could get a view of the facility. NOT GOOD ENOUGH and severely disappointed. If this is what looks to be a known issue, then more must be done to cater for those who can ONLY see out the right hand side window.

WOW What An Experience !
Nov 2018
What An Experience To Fly Over Ohau ! I Highly Recommend This After You Have Explored The Island A Bit. The Landmarks are More Clear and Makes it more Fun. Trip is Expensive But Worth It. Make Sure You get A Pilot That Talks Allot About What You Are Seeing. Our Pilot Spencer Was Not the Best Tour Guide I have Had in Previous Trips. He Was A Little Irritated When I asked Questions About What we Were Flying Over. But All In All A Fun Flight.

UNACCEPTABLE!
Oct 2019
I booked this tour for three adults 1 1/2 months prior to our trip to Oahu. The trip was confirmed and paid in full. Once in Oahu I called the day before the flight to again verify that everything was set for the helicopter tour and was assured the flight was set. Later that night while we were on a dinner cruise, we received a phone call telling us that if we did not agree to move our 2:10 pm flight to 8:30 am our tour would be cancelled. This cancellation was being made due to one seat being unsold on our flight. Outrageous! The three of us were looking forward to this first time helicopter ride for over a month! We were unable to book a flight with another outfit as it was last minute; nor could we move the reservation with this outfit to another day as they had "suggested", due to activities having been booked a over a month in advance for each day of our Hawaiian vacation. How this outfit justifies doing business this way is unfathomable! I would not recommend using this outfit to anyone who would be depending on confirmations being upheld by Blue Horizons.
