Now it can be experienced up close and on foot, landing by helicopter on our exclusive helipad on top of the island. Visitors have the option to land on the island with a 15-minute stop with the pilot or be hosted on the island by a local Maori Guide, who will share the islands’ unique history and its cultural significance.

Very few people in history have ever ventured on the island in this way before. Being surrounded by steep cliffs and stunning scenery it's sure to be a memorable and unique experience you won't forget.
