    Top of the bucket list

    Wings over Whales has to be one of my highlights in 67 years of travelling New Zealand. the team are so professional and yet make one feel like family in the whole experience, The package says 30 minutes, however, on arrival to landing is a good hour which includes a visual presentation which is fun and informative. I recommend that this experience should be done by all.

    Great moment

    We were a bit frustrated when we saw that their competitors were flying much lower and closer to the whales but the service is really top quality. Everyone in the staff was so nice to us, we had a really good experience with them.
