Once in a lifetime experience

This day was probably the most exciting and memorable day in my life. I’ve invited some German friends to a flight over whales as is was a wish from them while visiting NZ. Wishes still come through and we had tears in our eyes while doing some loops over the whales in Kaikoura. Spectacular landscapes, unforgettable ocean views, dolphins and 100% pure New Zealand adventure. Very experienced pilot was the icing on the cake and made our day even more amazing . We will be back with more friends in the future. Wicked trip ;)

Spectacular experience

We were lucky enough to go out on a fantastic day weather wise. The views from the plane were stunning and, of course, catching sight of a sperm whale was great - especially when it was the last pass of the area for our flight!! Staff were great - we really appreciated the call saying now would be a good time to come in if we could there a bit earlier. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Amazing experience

We had an amazing time on the flight. The weather was great and we were able to see two whales! The pilot was great and told us a lot of things about the whales. Overall great experience for a reasonable price!

Whale

The flight was good, the weather fine, and staff helpful. A bit of commentary by the pilot on the biology and behaviour of the whales would have improved the experience. Also it was billed as a 40 minute whale watch and scenic flight, which led me to think there would be a scenic portion to the flight, other than whale watching. This did not occur; we landed after 30 minutes. I thought the extra 10 minutes could have been used to provide a scenic component.

Really good value

Always an experience, flying in such a small aircraft! We saw 2 Spermwhales and a big group of Dolphins. The team is extremely professional and well organized, huge recommendation from me.
