    Great Experience. Highly recommend.

    Did this tour on February 27, 2017. The staff was very professional and polite. They welcomed us into their beautiful facility. The pilot was Jesse. Using picture slides he gave a short and interesting talk on the geology and why the whales live here and which kind of whales we might see. He was very good at picking clues to where the whales might be and flying there. We saw the famous sperms whales, a humpback playing with Dolphins and a few others.

    Amazing experience!

    The guys were incredible and really made it special for us and our little 2 year old!! Would highly recommend them! The small plane was an experience in itself and seeing the humpback whale was fantastic! Thank you!

    Amazing trip

    Wow! Really enjoyed the whale watching by plane, had a very clear calm day, so excellent visibility. Saw two whales and a large pod of dusky dolphins. The pilot was very informative. Would definitely recommend.

    Fantastic experience

    We were so impressed with the service and quality of experience we had with 'wings over whales' Edward our pilot was awesome. We saw sperm whales which was great but the flight itself showed the stunning coast of kaikoura. I can't find any fault of this trip

    Amazing experience

    Really worth it. We got lucky and saw four blue whales. The view over Kaikoura and the time shared in a small plane with the friendly pilot (oscar)was amazing. The briefing at the beginning is really interesting and put you in a good mood for flying. Thanks a lot for this amazing experience Oscar.
