We think this 30 minute flight is probably the best way to see the whales. You obviously don't get as close as the boats but the perspective is brilliant. We saw sperm whales and a humpback that obliged with two breaches as it played with it's dolphin mates.
While Kaikoura recovers boat bookings are pretty full and flights seem to have good availability. Good value at 180 nzd pp.
Thanks to pilot Liam for a great experience.
