a awesome experience !

we are totally delighted with this flight, this agency is great, friendly, professional! we had a brief security briefing, then some very interesting explanations about the underwater pit of Kaikoura, and the different whales and dolphins that we can meet there. the flight was really beautiful, the pilot, very friendly, very quickly spotted a whale that we could admire a long time. then he spotted a school of dolphins, it was fabulous to see them jump and play in the water! we then flew over the peninsula, which is really beautiful. we loved this flight and enjoyed every second! our driver kindly agreed to take a picture of us in front of the plane on the way back. I highly recommend this activity and this agency.

Awesome experience

Awesome flight over Kaikoura with an experienced pilot in a very characterful plane. I made a mistake by booking the wrong day, and they were gracious enough to fit me in another earlier flight. Found a sperm whale soon and the pilot really took his time to make sure we all got to see it properly and got our photos.

Very honest

Short after booking i got a mail if i would change the day of my flight because the weather forecast was bad. So i did. When i came in i got told that the chance of spotting whales was very little at that moment. I could choose not to fly and get a refund or to go anyway. I decided to go and had an amazing smooth flight. No whales spotted but still an awesome experience. Thanks to Jack!

A great day for a great whale watching!

We were the first morning flight and the team didn't let us in the air until they weren't sure there is a whale near by, in that time we had a very interesting little lecture about the area and the whales. We had an amazing pilot, his skills are incredible! He found the whale and circled over it the whole time it was on surface.
