Beyond awesome!!!

So right from booking I had exceptional contact from the pilot about check in for the next day. Super friendly & accomodating. Upon check in, awesome service, flying, commentary etc. can’t fault this wee company where 2 pilots are father n daughter. It was absolutely the highlight of our trip & I’ve already recommended it to so many people. Genuine Kiwi hospitality & good service. Epic sights that are just unreal! I’d go back & do this adventure again without a doubt! You get so close!

Exceptional White Island Scenic Flight Experience

We recently embarked on the White Island scenic flight trip from Whakatane, and it was nothing short of fantastic. Our family had an incredible experience filled with awe-inspiring views and seamless service. The pilot's expertise and commentary added a layer of depth to the journey, making it both educational and thrilling. The proximity to White Island allowed us to marvel at its unique beauty from a perspective that felt both intimate and safe. The entire trip was well-organized, and the staff exhibited professionalism and friendliness. From booking to landing, every aspect of our adventure was executed with precision. In summary, our family highly recommends the White Island scenic flight for an unforgettable exploration of New Zealand's natural wonders. It's an experience that beautifully combines breathtaking scenery with top-notch service. Thank you for an outstanding adventure!
