Best Kona Helicopter Tours

As one of the top vacation destinations globally, countless activities on the Big Island claim to be “must-dos.” And while it’s true, beach days and luaus are must-dos as part of the quintessential Hawaiian experience, no activity comes close to the magic of a Kona helicopter tour above the Big Island.

When you look at the Big Island on Google Maps, you can see the island’s dramatic change in climate, from the blanket of green rainforest covering the island’s Hamakua coast to the arid deserts that reach up to the towering peaks of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. However, while the difference in climate is easily discernible on the drive from Kona to Hilo, nothing shows the extent to how different each corner of the island is more than via helicopter.  Here are our picks for the top Kona helicopter tours.

Top 5 Maui Helicopter Tours

Maui is arguably the best island for helicopter tours because the Valley Isle simply has it all. Every corner of Maui reveals something entirely different from the rest, from the Mars-like desert at Haleakala Crater to the curtain of waterfalls deep within the West Maui Mountains. With vast swathes of impassible, isolated terrain, a helicopter tour is the only way to get a taste of what Maui is really all about.

Top 5 Oahu Helicopter Tours

When you think of towering waterfalls, lush mountain ranges, and miles of white-sand beaches, the island of Oahu might not be the first place that comes to mind. While islands like Maui and Kauai are known for their lushness, on Oahu, Waikiki’s cosmopolitan streets garner most of the attention. However, Waikiki only takes up a fraction of space on Oahu. Beyond the city, the island is home to craggy sea cliffs, verdant mountains, miles of beaches, and the occasional 1,000+ foot waterfall (no biggie). Yet, the blend of both manmade and natural beauty are what makes Oahu helicopter tours so appealing. On a single trip, you can peer down into the metropolitan heartbeat of the island, and mere minutes later, find yourself deep within a narrow valley.

Best Kona Manta Ray Tours

The seas around Hawaii are typically known for their abundance of dolphins, sea turtles, and whales. However, another creature is so intriguing that it compels our land-dwelling species to slip into the ocean after dark. That creature? Manta Rays. Manta rays can grow to colossal sizes, and unlike their stingray cousins, manta rays don’t have barbs or stingers on their tails. Harmless and graceful, manta rays can be found in excess off the coast of Kona. In fact, Kona is the only place in Hawaii that hosts manta ray tours.


Swimming with manta rays in Hawaii is obviously amazing, but narrowing down which tour company to go with can be difficult. We have made it easy for you by sharing our favorite manta ray tour companies on the Big Island. Here are our top five picks:
