An amazing way to discover White Island from the air. Very knowledgeable staff and pilot with a lot of respect for the island and for the tragedy that happened in 2019.

Amazing. This is definitely well worth it. Saw the Whakatane coastline, Whakaari/White Island and Moutohora/Whale Island. George and Jo were so friendly and informative. Learnt a lot about the area and the islands.

This trip was amazing start to end and it was a very cool way to experience Whakaari. Jo, thank you for helping my Grandfather and allowing him to take his time getting in and out of the plane. You made this an experience that he will talk about and remember for years :) I'm looking forward to some kayaking now. Many thanks, Thomas

Today I got to see one of my bucket list goals achieved. As a young geology student 30yrs ago I had to give an oral presentation on the geology of White Island while standing atop Mt Tarawera. Over the years the weather has thwarted my landing on Whakaari and more recently the eruptions on Whakaari have halted all landing parties. Today I got to see her in the air... it was magic! We took our 11 and 9yr old daughters as well and they were mesmerised. Truly an amazing trip out to Whakaari.... just wonderful. Couldn't recommend this company and staff more highly!!

We took our two children aged 8 and 10 on this scenic flight today. The experience was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed by us parents too. The pilot Jo was very professional and welcoming. The white island volcano is a majestic site, has been here for 1000’s of years, our children are fascinated by Volcanoes, so we decided to go ahead, with a respectful thought for those who lost their lives on the volcanic island, recently and in the early 1900’s. I think it is important that we support our local business's especially after the covid-19 pandemic. If we don’t use these services they won’t exist.
