Thrilling. Amazing. Fun. We three had an awesome experience on the Kaimai Classic. Our view from on high gave us a new perspective on the familiar, or what we thought was familiar, and took us to new places we'd never seen. 45 minutes of flying, with a brief landing mid-flight, was a really decent amount of flying. Other, shorter flights have flashed by way too fast. This was Just Right! Though who wouldn't like more sometime!! Pilot Will was considerate, informative and friendly. A wonderful gift or treat.

I felt like such a superstar riding with these guys. What an absolutely cool thing to do. My boyfriend and I flew around Mount Maunganui, getting the most amazing view, and over to a small island that you can't get to from land or sea. Then we were dropped off in Waihi for lunch before driving their AC Cobra back from Waihi to Tauranga. It was one of the best days ever. And the rain kept away long enough for us to drive in the roofless car! Such a cool experience. Of course it's on the pricey end of the scale, but well worth it for a different adventure or celebration.

This was a first helicopter flight for one of us and we both had a great time. The views were spectacular and stopping off at the beach was great (thanks for the photo taking). It was amazing to see the area from the sky, seeing the 'little people' climbing The Mount and beautiful colours in the bay. Thanks for a great experience!

Lawrence and the guys were amazing, they provided us with pretty much a "charter flight" out to White Isalnd at our request (not landing on it, which was fine!) Somuch knowledge on the Bay of Plenty and things to look out for both in the water and on land as we flew down the coastline before heading out to White Island. We did several laps of the island, and was explained so much about the island and volcano and dropped down to see sea and birdlife. Landed on the flight back for some out of chopper photos - just an amazing awesome experience. Thanks heaps guy - was worth every penny!!!

Thanks for taking time to review your experience with us! White Island is such a beautiful and unique landscape, unlike anything on the mainland, which makes it so devastating with the events which occurred. We are glad you enjoyed your experience, I'm sure it'll be one you'll never forget!
