Amazing experience!

This was our first ever small flight and Jo was an amazing pilot! Very knowledgeable and super friendly and chatty. It was stunning seeing White and Whale island from an aerial view and flying over the Ohope Bay. Highly recommend! You will be able to watch our experience on our YouTube channel soon! Dan n Kirsty

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.

White Island Flight

Amazingly smooth flight on small single engine plane. View of volcano and commentary from pilot was super. Best way to see an active volcano.
