Blue Hawaiian Helicopters departs from Waikoloa Heliport. Helicopter tours last between 50 minutes and 2 hours and provide views of active volcanic areas, sea cliffs, valleys and waterfalls. Passengers hear music, two-way communication with the pilot, and the pilot’s narration via noise-canceling headsets.
Note: Due to decompression-related sickness, it is recommended that passengers wait 12-24 hours after scuba diving before flying; the amount of time is dependent on particular dive factors. Ask about possible policies regarding minimum wait time between scuba diving and flying; weight restrictions; weather, cancellation and refund policies; and the minimum and maximum number of passengers for flights. All small aircraft may encounter turbulence.
Guided tours are available.
