Our excellent pilot, Sam, gave us good information on the areas we flew over which included Tarawera falls, landing and guided walk on Mount Tarawera, Waimangu Thermal Valley, Waiotapu and forestry area including Rotorua waterfront. We could see right down to Mount Ruapehu and out to see to Mount Edgecumbe and Whale Island. The views were amazing! Great way to understand and appreciate the natural beauty of the many lakes and mountains in Rotorua and surrounds. Trip lasted one hour including 20 mins guided walk on Mount Tarawera. Thanks Sam

Great way to spend the morning, float plane flight from Rotorua lakefront to the natural hot pools (only peasants go by boat.) Staff and crew were very professional and knowledgable throughout the trip, would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful scenic flight in a floatplane over lake Rotorua to lake Rotoiti for a soak in the exclusive access thermal hot pools (only peasants take a boat). Pilot was awesome and full of knowledge about the local area and answered all of our questions. Fantastic way to spend the morning, great views, value and service 😀
