all about the money!

What an awesome flight out of Maui over to Kauai. The cliffs the valleys and waterfalls. On the way we saw a couple of whales swimming and he flew down to show us a closer look. Neil our pilot was smart witty and fun. On our return all the good he did he blew it, there was a pod of whales 8 to 10 swimming below us , he was more concerned in getting back, this is very unusual to see that many whales together. It is a huge anomaly, few people have ever witnessed such an event. But Neil did not even slow down, he commented and kept going. Such a disappointment!.

I never thought I’d take a helicopter tour but our concierge Holly at Westin Princeville highly recommended it. I’m so glad we decided to do this. Our pilot Greg was fantastic! He was engaging from the start asking us questions, telling stories and pointing out special sights . The views were awesome! Great way to see things we would have never seen otherwise!

Total of 6 riders (+ the pilot) - great overview of the island. Our pilot, Dave, was awesome - pointed out highlights but didn't speak the whole time, so you could enjoy the experience.

Unreal & unforgettable!
Jan. 2020 • Couples
We had the most unforgettable, exhilarating, breathtaking, spectacular experience on Blue Hawaiian helicopters today. But I am mostly motivated to write this review because our pilot, Dave Weston, absolutely made the experience. He not only is expertly trained and made me immediately feel at ease, secure and safe but his confident energy was also equaled by his warm, personable, entertaining energy – providing not only the most informative, educational and fascinating tour of the island, but also the most perfect Oscar award worthy soundtrack!! This was without a doubt an experience that is worth every penny and more — and I would strongly recommend anyone even considering a helicopter ride to immediately book with this group!!

Amazing Kauai tour out of Princeville
Jan. 2020 • Solo
I can be a fearful commercial airline flyer but absolutely loved this chopper tour ! Chris as pilot and fabulous weather on top of much research—I knew this was the firm to go with. These choppers are new and used by EMS providers. It was truly a day I shall never forget. Don’t hesitate — it’s a bucket list bestie :)

Nice flight.
A nice flight with Kris with a K. He was a great pilot and knew a ton about the route. Our flight was late with no explanation or apologies. That was a bit disappointing as it gets dark quickly.

They Are Not in the People Business - They are in the Money Business!
Thoroughly disappointed in our experience with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters today. I booked a 4:15 pm flight at 9:00am this morning for myself, my wife, and my 4 year old son. Total cost of just under $1,000 for the three of us. Mind you, this was the most expensive on the island but we thought it would be worth the price given their good reviews. We arrived early as directed, only to find out that they canceled our flight without notifying us. It was cancelled because they were short one person for our flight. Our entire day was planned around this activity. The one activity my 4 year old son had been talking about since we got here.
They called the owner to see if they could make an exception since we were never notified. But the owner said no. They are not in the people business, they are in the money business. Was pretty tough having to let my son down and see him get emotional as we left. Hope no one else has to go through this too.

AMAZING!
Nov. 2019
We flew with Blue Hawaiian out of Princeville, Kauai and wow what a way to see the island! It's not cheap but its really worth it! They have the most up to date and modern helicopters available which have the best views from the front two seats! Our pilot was so friendly and knowledgable about the whole island and it was so smooth and exciting flying in and out of the canyons! This is 100% the best way to see the island, as well as hiking it. But best to see it from both perspectives! 100% would recommend Blue Hawaiian to anyone wanting to do a scenic trip around Kauai. (especially out of Princeville airport)

Fabulous and not to be missed
Oct. 2019
We flew with Blue Hawaii helicopters out of Princeville over the ranges, beaches and cliffs of Kauai with an x military pilot who was friendly, entertaining and extremely competent giving us a fabulous flight. My wife was a little apprehensive but afterwards claimed this was one of the best experiences she has had and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Not to be missed!!

Terrible experience and total lack of customer service
As a couple of first timers at Kauai my partner and I obviously desided experience Kauai from above. And since we were living in Princeville, this exact company and location was ideal for an airial experience. As you may have figured out, we were not pleased with our experience. Actually we was disappointed to such a degree that we wrote a long thorough complaint explaining why we thought their service isn't anything they claim.
Our email explained the bad experience we had on 3 main areas.
- Seating. Why on earth do you sell a helicopter trip with bad seating for 2 out of 6 passengers?!?! On top of that was clear that everyone in the back of the helicopter was seated randomly and not according to weight.
- Safety. If seating is disturbed by a computer, why can money overrule this supposedly safety-algorithm? For the simple price of 100$ you could be guaranteed a front seat despite weight height etc.
- Room. The helicopter used here, do not fit a 6"5 man and even though you file your height on the information sheet you have to fill in before departure, they do not take your height into account when the seats are distributed.

Our reservation was made over 2 months before take off because we were keen on getting an unforgettable experience because of the magnificent views Kauai has to offer. Instead we got an unforgettable experience because of their dishonest way of doing business.

Our trip was 24th of July this year and filled our complaint through their website on the 26th same month. Since we did not receive a reply on our feedback, we filled another note through the website the 28th of August. Again no answer.

I strongly recommend anyone NOT to use Blue Hawaiian Helicopters in Princeville because of their total lack of customer service and a supposedly dishonest way of doing business. I though have to emphasize that all personnel we interacted with on the location was friendly, kind and helpful.
