An absolute highlight

This tour was absolutely amazing and definitely a highlight of my whole trip. Jo was an excellent pilot and I enjoyed the flight very much. The weather looked so so when we started but it was sunny at white island and we had the most amazing views.

Mother’s Day Gift

We bought 2 tickets to fly over White & Whale Island as Mother’s Day gifts! For our beautiful 85yr old Nana and our (my) awesome Mum - they had the BEST time exploring our White & Whale Islands straight off our back door of the EBOP!!! Their smiles upon return were priceless and worth every cent and for that we’re sooo grateful to their lovely pilot (sorry I didn’t catch her name) but you definitely made their experience and 2019 Mother’s Day an unforgettable one :) xx

Awesome flight ! Couldn't expect more !

Very good activity ! Plane is brand new, professional safety requirements, pilots are awesome and friendly ! The flight above the volcano is just unbelievable !!! Couldn't expect more. Plus, the plane has its wings above the windows, providing excellent viewings and the fact that it is small (3seats only) means that if you're two, you'll have all the chances to be on a "private" scenic flight. Definitely would recommand this tour as it is one of the best we've made so far !
