To appreciate the beauty and contrasts of Kaikoura, there is nothing better than seeing it from the air.

Experience for yourself the stunning beauty of a place where mountains meet the sea, and marine life abounds.

Fly past Mt Fyffe, high above the Kaikoura township, taking in the beauty of the Seaward Kaikoura mountain range and Blue Duck Valley; then do some seal-spotting as we make our way back down the rugged Kaikoura coastline with its black sand beaches and breaking white surf. You may even spot large schools of fish on the way.

A truly magical flight, not to be missed!

Memorable experience

The experience was really great! Our pilot, Stephen, was very friendly, kind and patient with us. He showed us the greatness of Kaikoura. His enthusiasm & passion for his work aided us to trust him so we can be less scared of heights and just enjoy the ride. Highly recommended activity to do when in Kaikoura! :-)

Great staff

Even though we had to wait until the next day due to the weather it was totally worth it. Murray our pilot was friendly and informative.

It's a fantastic experience, totally worth it. I loved it, it's something you don't get to do every day. Mel is a great and sweet instructor, really chill. She explained everything really good and let you explore flying, but in a safe way. If you get the change, go for it, because why not?
