Blue Hawaiian: See Kauai by Helicopter
Ever since living on the Hawaiian Islands, I have always wanted to go on a helicopter tour of one of the islands. Once learning about all of the waterfalls on Kauai that can only be seen by air, Kauai quickly became the top of my list for which Hawaiian Island would be best to take a helicopter tour of. While visiting Kauai, Blue Hawaiian was gracious enough to host us on a helicopter tour over the Garden Isle.
The Blue Hawaiian Difference
Deciding which company to take a tour with is never easy. Once we did our research and discovered that Blue Hawaiian provides a first-class ECO Adventure not only on Kauai, but all four of the major Hawaiian islands in their spacious American Eurocopter ECO-Star, we knew this company would be ideal for a helicopter tour of Kauai.
As soon as we checked-in, we could see that Blue Hawaiian knew what they were doing when it came to helicopter tours of Hawaii. Everything was streamlined to move smoothly and to get everyone into the air quickly. Seated inside our Blue Hawaiian helicopter with plenty of seat room and expansive windows, we already knew we had picked the right company to see Kauai by air that day. After being hooked up to two-way communication that made it easy to communicate with our pilot through the tour, we were off to the sound of the Hawaii Five-O theme song.
Sit back, press play, and enjoy the Blue Hawaiian tour with us!
It’s hard to put into words everything that took place on our helicopter tour over Kauai. We visited Hanapepe Valley, Manawaiapuna, Olokele Canyon, Waimea Canyon- the famed “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, Na Pali Coast, Bali Hai, Hanalei Bay, and Mt Waialeale by air. There was so much to see, take in, and experience. Hopefully, our pictures will be able to tell the story in a way our words cannot express. Your best bet is going on your own helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian to really experience it.
Kauai Waterfalls by Air
The amount of waterfalls we saw the day of our tour was unbelievable. It was rare to see so many at that time of the year. Due to big rains the night before, we saw many waterfalls that only happen when it’s raining during the winter.
Na Pali Coast
Hanalei Mountain Range
Waialeale Weeping Wall
The grand finale of Blue Hawaiian’s helicopter tour and my favorite part was being right in front of the Waialeale Weeping Wall. It was more spectacular and beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Just thinking back on it, gives me goosebumps all over again. The photos don’t do the Weeping Wall justice in any way.
Before you get in the air with Blue Hawaiian, be sure to brush up on your Hawaiian trivia. Our pilot asked us all kinds of trivia on Hawaii while we were in the air. Can you believe I was the only one who knew any of the answers? Every single one.
Book a Tour with Blue Hawaiian
Without much effort you can book your own helicopter tour of one of the Hawaiian Islands with Blue Hawaiian through their user-friendly website. You select date, tour, and which island you would like to see by helicopter and one of their knowledgeable customer service team members will email you with your confirmation within 24 hours.

What a sight it is to see Kauai by air! With much of what Kauai has to offer being inaccessible by car, a helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian is the perfect way to fully experience Kauai’s many hidden natural wonders.
