We had an amazing experience with Haast Heli. Staff were all extremely professional, they planned a great flight up the coast line landing on the beach and flying in land back over the river. Scott’s knowledge was incredible, gave us a local in sight to this stunning area, pointing out landmarks and wildlife. We saw dolphins, seals and penguins. Scotts expertise in flying ensured that we always felt comfortable and safe. The coast line from the air is AMAZING!!!
My partner was very anxious of flying in a helicopter both Scott and Sheri reassured him that if at any time he was uncomfortable being in the air that they will return and land the helicopter immediately. He loved the flight and is very keen to do it again.
Great value for money. We can highly recommend to anyone wanting not wanting to just be a number on the more commercial flight like what we saw at the glaciers.
We will return for a longer flight next time we are in New Zealand. Thanks again Haast Heli.

Could not recommend this any higher, we took a quick flight along the coast to see a seal colony and also landed on top of one of the hills to take in the amazing views.

Great value and amazing service!

Rarely have we encountered such a warm, friendly and helpful team. They went out of their way to find another couple to share the trip and this not only saved us a lot of money but we made new friends too. Fantastic trip to Milford Sound and back via a deserted beach where our new friends produced a bottle of sauvignon and 4 cups. Much better scenery than going from Queenstown and a great bunch of people who really care.

After staying overnight in Haast we wandered down to the office and asked for tour options . We choose to take a short jaunt down the coast in their small helicopter. It was great fun seeing dolphins and seals along the coast and the tour was longer than advertised which was a bonus . The staff were very helpful and very friendly .
