Experience a dozen worlds in one flight! Enjoy the drama and mystery of Auckland’s stunning rainforest and thundering west coast surf, and swoop around the dramatic Auckland cityscape. Simply breathtaking.
NZ $379.00

Imagine taking off from our modern heliport and flying over the best sites of Auckland. Wave to the people at the top of the volcanic craters of One Tree Hill and Mt Eden. As the city appears you will swing out and down the harbour to get a close up view of the city’s waterfront area and city backdrop including the Skytower.

Up and over the Harbour Bridge head west across the Waitakere Ranges rainforest before sweeping across the rugged headlands of the dramatic west coast. Feel the power of the thundering surf of the Tasman Sea, then swing south past Bethell’s Beach and the high volcanic cliffs that hang over the world renowned black sand beaches.

Experience a different mood as you swoop towards the mouth of the Manukau Harbour where the turbulent sea gives way to a calm, wide waterway leading up to the exciting entrance back to Auckland Airport and see large airliners depart and land before you.

Enjoy incredible unobstructed views all the way with our specially designed helicopter sightseeing windows and be entertained by one of our multi-talented pilots and his knowledgeable commentary. Individual microphone headsets allow passengers to talk to each other and the pilot throughout this breath-taking adventure.

In the event that the weather is unsuitable on the day then your flight 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.
