What a brilliant way to see the changed landscape of Kaikoura coast and surrounding area after the 2016 Earthquake. Would recommend this trip as something special. Daniel(pilot) was a wealth of knowledge about the area and fault line, certainly made for a great flight. A special peek into a slice of New Zealand history.

Timing was impeccable - we saw two whales - and your service was super friendly and knowledgeable. Daniel you are a charmer! We felt so safe so the experience was focused on the view. What a great way to see our second home from the air. Thank you! What a birthday treat ! 👍👍👏👏👍👏

A wonderful trip to Mt Fyffe for the two boys. It was the highlight of their holiday. We went out over the ocean and spotted a pod of dolphins before flying over the hills. Beautiful views from the top

Took a heli flight up to the top of Mount Fyffe, over the ocean where we saw dolphins and then we flew through the valley which was incredible! We landed on the top of the mountain and spent time taking in the amazing panoramic views of the ocean and snow covered mountains. Pilot Dan was great and so knowledgable.10/10 would recommend!! Thanks South Pacific!!
