It was incredible to see the detail of the whale and how it moved in the water. Viewing it closely from above gave us a perfect view. The dolphins were a bonus.
The trip up to Mt Fyffe that followed was fantastic as we could see the details of the landscape from the sea, to the flat farmlands and then the hills and snow-covered mountains. Flying up to the peak and being able to get out of the helicopter and walk about.
Dan's helicopter is not a Robinson, and so we felt perfectly safe in it. It was very comfortable and Dan's commentary added to the experience. Thank you to team at South Pacific Helicopters.
