Don’t hesitate. Just book it. Jordan was great, informative, down to earth. Managed to see both humpback and sperm whales and flew up the side of a mountain. Not your average afternoon..

The staff were friendly and the pilot did his very best to find a whale, which we did toward the end of the 30 minute flight. An amazing experience!

Couldn’t fault these guys. Being a wheelchair user wasn’t an issue. They assisted with lifting me into and out of the helicopter. Very knowledgeable about the area and the sea life. Safety with them was paramount and explained very well prior to boarding the helicopter. I would recommend Kaikoura Helicopters for an excellent experience.

My Wife and I recently had the pleasure of a short stopover in Kaikoura. The wheather was great so made an inpromptu decision to take a helecoptor flight. The office is centrally located in the town centre. An extremely welcoming young lady welcomed us and were able to book and be flying within an hour, amaizing! The pilot was brilliant, friendly, welcoming and full of information about the area. We landed on Mt Fyffe to take in the stunning views of the area then headed off following the Hapuku River to the newly formed lake, amaizing in itself. Back to base via South Bay and round the peninsula. A great experience I would absolutely recommend should you have time to kill in Kaikoura.
