Wonderful, amazing experience!

Such an amazing experience!! Professional and friendly pilot and stuff welcomed me immediately and the flight was magnificent! We saw 3 blue whales!! To see their full magnificence is only possible from above. We were all so happy in our hearts, it was super and atmosphere was great all the time too. Thank you!

Just a perfect day !

The view was amazing , we saw one sperm whale and was great moment . The pilot did the best he could for try to find also one more . The weather was perfect and colour of the sea and sky gave us unique experience . On the way back there where many dolphins . If you are in Kaikoura just do it .

Air Kaikoura Rocks

We had an incredible time with Air Kaikoura. Our pilot, Stephen, warned us before we went up that the weather wasn't great for finding the whales - it was too windy so the waves were quite large. He told us we had around a 65% chance of seeing one instead of the usual 95%. But as soon as we got into the whale watching area, Stephen spotted a whale! We were so delighted and had a great experience overall. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Is a fantastic memorial for life

Our schedule had been canceled at 0830 and reschedule at 0900. We just a 3 persons little group so it's a tiny airplane. The pilot take care about us a lot even we cannot see any whales up there. We keep flying around 50 minutes because they want us to see the whales! Unfortunately I am sick and vomit up there so the pilot landing immediately. I think they do a very good job and that's a incredible flight experience cause you can see the whole sea and mountain view in the sky!
