This will be a highlight of your New Zealand trip - a panoramic whale flight, with stunning scenic views along the spectacular Kaikoura coastline.

View the mighty Sperm whales in their natural environment - from the air, you really get to appreciate the full size of these majestic mammals.

Dusky dolphins and other marine creatures also play in the waters over the Kaikoura Canyon, we'll see them on your flight. After finding whales,
we'll take you on a scenic flight around beautiful Kaikoura including the stunning Seaward Kaikoura Mountain Ranges to the west, and to the east, the deep blue Pacific Ocean.

Flight training and Pilot-a-Plane experiences also offered for those who have always wanted a chance to fly...
