A spur of the moment decision to fly and it is was one of the best I have made. Kylie was a terrific pilot and a great promoter of the Te Anau area (which is wonderful). I'd recommend it to anyone!

We were picked up from our Cruise Te Anau boat by the Wings and Water float plane and flown back to base, passing over the main lake and hidden lakes. A real buzz and an unforgettable way to finish our cruise and nature walk.
