If you are going to Fiji, consider a transfer via sea plane. Its a little more expensive than the ferry, but its faster and offers a visual experience that should not be missed

I booked the scenic helicopter flight around the islands for my partner's birthday. Email communication was a bit slow. Our pick up was about 30 min late as well, but the flight itself definitely made up for it. We had to drop two other passengers...More

An interesting experience. Bare-footed pilots, Casual departure times. Not all headsets presents, so own earplugs needed to handle the noise. Great way to arrive in your resort.

Great day on the island, staff were jovial & looked after us very well. The food & drinks were on the pricey side.

Bula and thank you for your review. Our pilots have to be in and out of the water all day long as we pull up to the beach for passengers to embark/disembark and hence no shoes! I am always reminding them they have the best...More

I would recommend this flight to anyone! We flew with our daughter & 4 y.o. grandson. The day was perfect and the pilot went out of his way to show us everything & explain all. Worth to pay for half hour trip!!

Hi All, Looking to book with PIA in September but I've been trying to get the answer to a few questions but with the time difference of 12 hours process is slow and some of the questions I've asked have been missed adding to the delay so figured I'd reach out :) We are staying on the mainline for about a week and the Westin and then looking to take a combo flight out to Tokoriki island resort I understand the helicopter has a luggage allowance of 15kg pp which given we are on a 2 week holiday we will of course have more than 15kg to travel with. So my current questions are: Are we able to take one bag of 30kg and leave the remaining luggage with PIA - And is it secure? Do PIA offer a free transfer from Westin resort to the departure? Where does the seaplane land on it's return and from there how would we get back to collect our bag? and lastly Where are PIA based as once we land back we'll need to head to Nadi international airport Many Thanks Ryan
