Blue Hawaiian Helicopters

Experience Oahu’s most thrilling sights on one incredible tour!

From the Aloha Tower to Diamond Head, from glittering Hanauma Bay to the pristine Koolau Mountains, from Sacred Falls and the breathtaking North Shore to the emotional power of Pearl Harbor, nobody shows you all of Oahu’s iconic sights like Blue Hawaiian—the only helicopter tour company serving all of Hawaii. Plus, on Oahu, only Blue Hawaiian flies the 21stcentury, quiet-technology Eco-Star, the world’s most advanced touring helicopter. So forget about sitting in a tour bus or rental car and fighting traffic for hours. Give Blue Hawaiian just 50 blissful minutes of your time, and you’ll see all of Oahu— the way it should be seen.

Voted #1 – Hawaii’s best helicopter tour company

“Hawaii’s premier helicopter tour company”

Every Year Since 1995 Blue Hawaiian is the only activity company in Hawaii honored with the coveted Star Diamond Award.

Every Year Since 1996 “Blue Hawaiian is the Cadillac of helicopter tour companies”

‘Iolani Palace

Downtown Honolulu is a rich mix of beautiful

historic buildings where ali‘i (members of Hawai‘i’s nobility) once lived and modern-day structures reflect the mid-day sun. Architectural buffs will not be disappointed. Hawai‘i is unique to the nation’s states in many ways, but a visit to downtown Honolulu best illustrates the state’s unusual place in history. It’s the only one to have once been ruled by its own monarchy. At the cross section of South King Street and Punchbowl, visit Ali‘iolani Judiciary Building with the statue of Kamehameha the

Great in front, then cross Punchbowl to Kawaiaha‘o Church and Mission Houses Museum. Across the way is Honolulu Hale, then cross Punchbowl again to ‘Iolani Palace, ‘Iolani Barracks and the Coronation Pavilion within the same block. On Beretania Street, see Washington Place behind the wrought iron fence. ‘Iolani Palace is one of three of Hawai‘i’s royal residences— the only ones in the nation. Architecture buffs will find a treasure trove of jewels in Honolulu’s Capital District of which ‘Iolani Palace is a great example. Three architects were employed in its design, which features double lanai (porches) lined with Corinthian

Delicious & down to earth

Hawaiian food

If an island lu‘au is on the itinerary, you’ll definitely have the opportunity to sample the delicious fare of our host culture— Hawaiian food. If you’ve never tried it, draw on the adventurous tastebuds of Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern and make it a point to do so!

Hawaii Tourism Japan

Laulau - It’s like unwrapping a gift—peel away the outer ti leaves to find edible taro leaves that look and taste much like cooked spinach. Inside, you’ll find either pork, chicken or butterfish. Usually cooked in the imu (underground oven), laulau is also steamed on the stovetop.

Kalua pig - The highlight of every lu‘au is the uncovering of the kalua pig that’s been cooking in the imu for hours. Its flavor is smoky, salty; consistency is tender and juicy. It can also be cooked in a slow cooker or oven for the same delicious flavor.

Hawaiian food Lomilomi salmon - It may not be a traditional Hawaiian dish, but lomilomi is a favorite. It’s made with diced salmon, tomatoes, green and round onions and salt to taste. Let it marinate overnight to enhance the flavor of the salmon. The salmon’s omega-3 fatty acids are a plus!

Poi - Certainly an acquired taste, poi is made from mashing steamed or baked taro root, and adding water to create a desired consistency. Its flavor varies as each day passes. It’s low in fat, high in vitamin A and complex carbs, and is easy to digest.

A word on Poi

Taro is highly regarded by Hawaiians, who believe that the plant is the original ancestor of all Hawaiian people. Because the taro plant is central to the Hawaiians, its cultivation is an honored tradition.

C

hoosing the right fish from the menu is like selecting fine wine—each has its own taste, aroma and texture. People eat twice as much seafood in Hawai‘i as the U.S. per capita national average. What does that mean to you? Every restaurant has fresh fish on the menu with a not-so-familiar Hawaiian name. Use this guide to find the fish that has the qualities you enjoy the most.

Onaga

Long-Tail Red Snapper: Soft and moist with a delicate flavor, onaga can be baked, steamed or sauteed.

Opah

Moonfish: Popular with chefs, opah has a juicy, rich flavor with a roast pork-like aroma. Texture is very tender.

THIS WEEK OAHU

Shutome

Opakapaka

Pink Snapper: This delicately flavored fish has a tender texture perfectly suited for baking, poaching and sauteing.

Swordfish: This fish is tasty without any seasoning. It has a delicate, slightly fruity flavor and a subtle aroma. Texture is succulent and meaty.

More fish choices Ahi Tuna, Yellowfin/Bigeye Tuna

Mahimahi, Dolphin Fish

Considered one of Hawai‘i’s most popular choices, ahi is served raw as sliced sashimi or cooked rare.

Mahimahi is for the finicky fish eater. It has a mellow, lemony, sweet-rich flavor with a silky, yet flaky, tender texture.

Ono, Wahoo

Eat fresh fish

A distinctive, yet delicate, tangy-citrus flavor simillar to poultry or veal. Chewy and firm texture.

Enjoy fresh cuts of isle fish in sushi rolls, fresh sashimi, in a poke dish, as ceviche or in a seafood chowder. Ono! Delicious!

There IS a suit that will showcase YOU in a way that makes you feel comfortable. You can have fun while being tasteful, and show a lot without showing a lot—you know what we mean. • Self conscious about your bod? Consider a tankini or one-piece that shows less skin, but can be just as appealing as a bikini. • Just as with regular tops, a v-neck looks good on a lot of women.

Get outdoors to experience activities for every age level. From the Ko‘olau Mountains to Pacific Ocean, O‘ahu has lots for you to do!

Explore O‘ahu Catch Your Thrills

Rev up your adrenaline as you get behind the wheel of an electric kart at the indoor Podium Raceway. After a short intro, gear up, then hit the gas, easing into tricky hairpin turns, then racing down the straightaway at speeds of up to 45mph. Great fun for the family! An arcade and cosmic mini-putt available too. With names such as Da Flowrider, Tornado and Raging River, you know you’re in for a fun day at Wet’n’Wild, Kapolei’s 29-acre tropical waterslide park. All ages can enjoy a leisurely float ride in the Kapolei Kooler and swim in a simulated beach environment. It’s fun for the whole family. Experience a thrill of another kind—the kind that makes your hair stand on end—with Oahu Ghost Tours. Visit our haunted places on daily tours; Waikiki picks ups are available.

Unless you intend to wing it, travel requires careful planning in order to make the most of each day—be sure to include a few days of relaxation too! Turn the pages and make special note of our top sights. Also see the backcover fold-out for O‘ahu’s top 10 attractions. Exploring Chinatown is a must, page 104, as well as the North Shore, page 122. Whether you’re a history buff or not, the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites is a definite must visit; page 112.

ities to do on the Big Isle

HTA / Joe Solem

One way to visit the Arizona Memorial is via Hawaii Duck Tours. Sign up for the Pearl Harbor Duck Tour and ride on a fully restored, amphibious WWII DUKW or ‘‘Duck.’’ A limited number of tickets for the Arizona Memorial are available, as well as a stop at the Battleship Missouri Memorial. Additional tours aboard the Duck are available. Park Hawaii, and you’ll still wish you had more time. See the 300,000-gallon aquarium housing Hawai‘i’s native sharks; learn about dolphins at the Dolphin Cove Show; laugh out loud at the Kolohe Kai Sea Lion Show; hear trainers as they share facts about threatened penguins; and there’s so much more to do! You can even interact with dolphins, rays and sea lions. Ask about it! Conveniently located in Waikiki are Waikiki Aquarium and Honolulu Zoo. Be sure to visit these gateways to the animal world as well.

PHOTO Focused

O‘ahu’s geographical features and tropical locations are a photographer’s dream come true. Blue Hawaii Photo Tours caters to photographers in search of that inspirational shot. A professional photographer guides each tour, sharing Hawai‘i’s culture and history, and provides expert tips to help guests capture their own unique images that tell a personal story. Limited to seven adults.

GET BEHIND the Wheel

In order to explore O‘ahu from Makapu‘u Lighthouse to Turtle Bay and Kaena Point to Barber’s Point, you’ll need a car. Tip: Even though it looks like you can drive around the entire island in one continuous loop, you can’t. You can only access everything south of the Wai‘anae Mountains via the H1 Freeway/Hwy. 93. So take your time.

A snorkeler’s paradise

Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve (Map G:S10), the state’s first designated Marine Life Conservation District, is home to abundant marine life in all colors. The scenic bay is a remnant of the island’s volcanism and is edged by a 2,000-foot, crescentshaped beach that’s protected by an offshore reef teeming with tropical fish. Conditions here are ideal for novice snorkelers and the park has an informational video and short, walk-thru exhibit introducing its marine life. See schools of vibrant butterfly fish; black-striped manini, or convict tang; the aptly named trumpetfish; pastel-colored surgeonfish; and multi-colored parrotfish. You might even spot a Hawaiian green sea turtle munching on coral! Restrooms, showers are available bayside. Open 6 a.m.-7 p.m. daily; closed on Tuesdays. Fees: $1 per vehicle, $7.50/person, 808-396-4229. Tip: Go early to avoid long lines and a full lot.
