This unassuming location gave us the most private views. Mark was great! We took 3 kids, girls ages 14, 11 and 3 on this tour and they all loved it. We touched down in 2 places and they loved the zip through the canyon to...More
My husband and I went on a flight for our anniversary. We knew it would be out of our comfort zone but it was one of those things that we always wanted to do! My husband loved it but unfortunately my nerves got the better...More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your flight (even with the nerves) and service with us :)
Why get on a boat when you can see so much more from a helicopter? Unbelievable life experience, we couldn’t all stop saying “wow”. While the weather wasn’t so good, still a breathtaking simply beautiful part of the world, both Dusky and Doubtful sounds. Our...More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review Melissa! It was such a pleasure showing you & Darren our backyard and hope to see you back here in the future :-)

Flew from Milford to Te Anau. Amazing view of the Sound, and a complete new prospective on the size and shape of Fiordland.
Clearing the lip at 6000ft over Sutherland Falls was just something else. Pilot was both informative and courteous throughout.
I took the Doubtful and Dusky Sound flight on November 7 and it was AMAZING!!!!! There were just two of us plus our wonderful pilot, Mark, and we all fit in the front seat (bench seat) so we both got great photos. Had a bit...More
I recently took the Dusky & Doubtful Sound tour with Fiordland Helicopters. What a great choice. I have exhausted the adjectives in describing this trip to others. This tour was just exceptional. To get out and view areas that are just inaccessible otherwise is incredible....More
