We love it!!

The staff was welcoming, and were very patient and two of our group were a bit scared. The pilot made a huge effort to find a whale which we have seen at the end!! We all got a great view of it!

Great experience

Air Kaikoura's crew is very friendly and highly professional. Flying over the bay was one of our trip's best adventure. We got lucky to see one spermwhale. FYI, you are high up in the sky so it can be disappointing for some to see just a tiny whale from where you are. But there are no ways around it and the pilot will surely make sure you get the best views of the whale. The Kaikoura range is very impressive from the sky. Big bonus!

Worth it !

Pilot really friendly, nice organisation. Would do it again! 40 minutes flight is the minimum if you want to enjoy what Kaikoura as to offer ! We saw a sperm whale, dusky dolphins and a couple of orcas chasing a fur seal :) Great experience !
