​This flight combines the best of both worlds.

Only by helicopter can you aerial whale watch one minute then be landing on a hilltop high above Kaikoura's unique and rugged coastline in the next.

Land above Goose Bay at our exclusive landing site over looking Hikurangi Marine Reserve and Kaikoura Canyon

From the landing site you will see north along the coast to the peninsula, South to the Haumuri Bluff, West past the rolling green hills to Seaward Kaikouras

When the whales are close to shore, it is possible to spot their spouts as they breathe and the splashing from dolphins jumping

Approx 50 minute flight
