Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours

Freddie and I took a helicopter tour of Kauai when we were there about 4 years ago.  We were so impressed with the staff and the equipment we decided to try it again, this time on the big island of Hawaii.

We talked our traveling friends into coming with us. They are terrified of heights and we weren't too sure how it would go.

We weren't disappointed, in fact, the tour was magnificent. Our friends loved it as much as we did!
We not only saw the splendor or water falls,

but we saw macadamia nut, pineapple and cattle farms that were picturesque from the air.

The largest black sand beach in Hawaii where King Kamehameha grew up.

We also saw the majesty of volcanoes. They are a force to be reckoned with. The lava vents in the neighborhoods (or what use to be neighborhoods) was frightening.

The most incredible sight was the lava flowing, really exploding into the ocean with big chunks of red hot rocks being tossed into the wind like feathers.
