Take off from Waikoloa

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - AIR TOURS -

Most Hawai‘i Is­land he­li­copter tours orig­i­nate from Kailua-Kona or Hilo. But there is one com­pany that flies out of Waikoloa on the Ko­hala Coast. Blue Hawai­ian Helicopters main­tains a pri­vate he­li­port in the high-end tourist area, mak­ing it con­ve­nient for Ko­hala Coast vis­i­tors to book a tour.

Blue Hawai­ian Helicopters, which con­ducts tours through­out the Is­lands, is a well-re­spected com­pany with more than 25 years of ex­pe­ri­ence. One tour flies over an ac­tive vol­cano and lava flows in Hawai‘i Vol­ca­noes National Park, then turns to ex­plore the mag­nif­i­cent rain­forests and wa­ter­falls of the Ha­makua Coast. An­other tour takes you to the Ko­hala Coast, where more wa­ter­falls, tow­er­ing sea cliffs and an­cient Hawai­ian set­tle­ments blend into deep val­leys and acres of rain­for­est.
