Man O War Heli Flights
Departing from our city heliport on Auckland's waterfront, fly over the sparkling Hauraki Gulf enroute to a truly magical lunch destination. This incredible Waiheke experience with Heli Me includes either a one way or return flight, to Waiheke's only beachfront restaurant with a helipad onsite.
We suggest booking a table online with Man O War directly, but one of our team can always help if you have any questions about how it all works, get in contact any time!
If you want to fly one way only but need transport for the rest of your journey, you can book a seat on the Man O War Coach through their website, or we can book you a private transfer to the ferry terminal or elsewhere on the island such as accommodation or another vineyard.
This Heli Me product includes just the flight(s). All food and beverage purchases and on-island transfers if booking one way are additional costs.
We highly recommend having your transport sorted before you go, as its quite a journey out to Man O War by road and it can be difficult (and a long wait) to get a taxi to come and get you on the day if it is not pre-booked.
Of course booking return flights will avoid any hassle!
Pricing Per Helicopter:
2-3 Passengers: From $1580 One Way, $2900 Return

Our packages for 2 and 3 guests are based on flying in our R44 or B206 helicopters. Upgrades to our luxury Airbus H130 helicopters will mean paying for the 4-6 passenger rate.
Please contact us to confirm aircraft and restaurant availability.
Take a 3rd Person for no additional flight cost!
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.
All gift vouchers are valid for 6 months from the date of purchase, or are otherwise specified if bought during a promotion. They are non-refundable but are transferable so they can be used by any other person.
