Five tips to book a Hawaiian Helicopter Tour

Booking a helicopter tour around the Hawaiian Islands is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and a great way to see the islands in all their glory. There are a few things to consider when looking into booking a helicopter tour which will guarantee you have the best experience possible.


Know where you are sitting before you get on the helicopter.

You can generally expect to have six people on board. With this seating arrangement, this means that there are four people in the back of the chopper, and two of those people are in the middle seats. This can cause a semi-obstructed view, but being prepared for this can save on some future disappointment.


Decide on the right time of day to take your flight around the island.

Late morning and early afternoons are the best time. Will the sun shining brightly in the sky, the island colors are incredible, and there will be minimal shadows to worry about!


Try to get into the sky on one of the first days of your vacation.

When you take a helicopter tour at the beginning of your Hawaiian vacation, you have a change to see what the island looks like from up above – before you spend time on the ground. This can be helpful with geographic landmarks, and gives you a literal bird’s eye view of the land before you decide to hike around.


Compare prices!

With all helicopter touring companies having their prices online, it is easy to compare prices when you begin shopping around. There are many discounts offered if you book directly with the company, and skip the third party vacation planner.


Safety first!

Always do your research on safety. Ensuring the company you decide to fly with is fully licensed, and has high flight standards is incredibly important. Again, online searches are a great way to make sure you are flying with a reputable company.

While these are not the only tips to Hawaii helicopter tours, these items are a great starting point to get the most out of your helicopter experience!
