‘All it took was one look at the rolling hills, seaside cliffs and sweeping islands shimmering in the pristine ocean below to understand New Zealand is truly unlike anywhere else in the world. And that was just the setting for the world's most spectacularly scenic driving range, perched high above the rolling landscape and ocean cliff views."
Fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs that plunge to the sea – so take some spare balls! The beautiful inland holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland. Kauri Cliffs is currently ranked #80 in the world on the Golf Magazine World Top 100 list so you’ll get an idea of just how good it is. The golf complex includes a world-class practice range, putting and chipping greens, a well-stocked golf shop, club rental and ladies’ and men’s locker rooms.
Away from the course, everything else is just as special – the luxury dining and elegant style of the Kauri Cliffs Lodge for example, where you will enjoy a relaxed and memorable lunch.

All venues on Waiheke have high demand for landing slots and table bookings especially in the peak season. It is best to book well in advance, and if you only have one date that you would like to fly, please enquire before purchasing, as we may need to suggest a different restaurant or time of day depending on availability.
This Heli Me experience departs from our City Heliport at Mechanics Bay in Auckland City. Other departure locations such as Auckland Airport, Ardmore Airport and North Shore Airport are available but may incur an additional charge. Please contact us for pricing.
Passenger Weight and Aircraft Occupancy
Unlike large airliner aircraft individual passenger weight is critical for a helicopter. For a full helicopter the average passenger weight must generally be 80-85kg or below. There is also a maximum individual seat limit of 125kg. Heavier loads can sometimes be carried but it depends on the distribution of weight. Please let us know passenger weights at the time of booking.
Each helicopter has a maximum occupancy equal to the number of seats. Infants may be carried on an adult's lap but are counted towards the total occupancy, so by law a spare seat must be kept for any children carried on a lap.
On shared scenic flights, passengers over 100kg may require an additional comfort seat to be purchased.
In the event that the weather is unsuitable on the day then your experience will be cancelled and rescheduled at no cost to you. When booking please provide us with suitable contact information so we can get hold of you on the day in the event of a cancellation. We suggest you call on the morning of your experience if you have any doubt about the weather suitability.
