Activity description

Take a scenic helicopter flight over the gorgeous Bay of Islands with coastal views leading to the infamous Hole in the Rock.

Departing from a beachfront helipad in Paihia, this adventure begins across the skies of Russell with stunning views of the bay and islands. Your pilot will provide interesting commentary along the way and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Next, you will cross over Opua and its beautiful surroundings before tracking along the peninsula coastline to Cape Brett. This flight provides a unique view of the Cape Brett lighthouse where you will experience an exciting turn to fly around the Hole in the Rock.

On your journey back, the helicopter will fly you directly above the main islands of the area for a bird’s eye view of white sandy beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, and luxurious private residences. As you make your way back down to Paihia, you will fly past the Waitangi Treaty grounds and Paihia township. Do not miss out on this thrilling and scenic adventure over some of the best coastal and island scenery New Zealand has to offer!
