My husband & I decided to do the Doubtful & Dusky Sounds trip & we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect afternoon. No wind & blue skies which enabled us to get the most majestic views of a magic part of Southland. We landed on a rock 3,500ft above Dusky Sound initially & again on a beach which can only be reached by air. We flew through tight gorges & up close to the cliff faces. Exhilarating. Matt and his very experienced co pilot knew every inch of the area & we had longer than planned in order to take some fabulous shots. Add it to your bucket list as it’s a trip not to be missed. Thank you to all the friendly staff involved in making it so memorable, especially Matt & Sir Richard. PS I’d love a copy of that sunset photo too pls Richard if at all possible. Cheers. Fairlie & David.

My wife and I and our kids (9 & 11 yrs) flew to the top of Mt Kidd and landed by a frozen tarn. Matt was our pilot, personable and knowledgeable.

What a brilliant experience. Highly recommend.

We went on the Doubtful Sound flight with pilot Heff. One of the best experiences of our lives. Heff was fantastic, knowledgable, and very accommodating. 100% recommend. Save up and go for a flight, it’s worth it
