We were the lucky winners of a trip to Kaikoura, which included a 30 minute Helicopter Ride with South Pacific Helicopters in February 2022. We were welcomed the minute we walked into the building by the team. This was the highlight of our trip, the pilot Dan, did a stop on the hilltop, informed us about the environment, coastline and gave us an amazing, incredible, flight over Kaikoura on a perfect day. Thanks to Dan & all the team for truly an awesome experience.

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 ! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
