Overview

Treat yourself to an unforgettable Kaikoura Ultimate Helicopter Adventure in New Zealand, that will let you experience the best of Kaikoura’s breathtaking landscapes, stunning coastal shores, soaring mountain ranges, and rich and varied marine wildlife in a way that a helicopter makes possible. Kaikoura’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake forever altered our landscape. It elevated coastal shorelines, and left fissures in the entire mountain range and huge scars in South Island of New Zealand's main highway.

We invite you to witness the major rebuilding effort undertaken by the North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery or NCTIR and the collaboration of local authorities and businesses to rebuild the region.

You will be aloft for one hour and 20 minutes, allowing you to gaze down at the Seaward Kaikoura Ranges abruptly rising out of the Pacific Ocean for over 2500 metres. Circling above our impressive population of marine mammals, keep your eyes peeled for our resident sperm whales as well as other migrating whale species passing through. Also keep an eye out for local denizens like the New Zealand fur seals and the dusky dolphins.

Your tour also comes with a landing at the newly formed Hapuku Lake that resulted from the November 2016 earthquake.
