See the Cape Brett Hole in the Rock from the air on a Bay of Islands helicopter tour, departing from Paihia. All seats on board the helicopter provide spectacular bird’s-eye views, and your pilot provides commentary on each stunning natural landmark.
Select one of three options at booking: a 20-minute scenic flight, a 35-minute tour that includes a Hole in the Rock landing or a 1-hour experience with a short nature walk upon landing.
Scenic Helicopter Flight: (20 minutes)
This Bay of Islands helicopter tour soars over the historic townships of Russell, Paihia and Waitangi, and above crystal-clear waters and island beaches. Hover above the Hole in the Rock, a natural feature at Cape Brett that can only be accessed by air or water.
Hole in the Rock Landing: (35 minutes)
Fly over the Bay of Islands before landing on the helipad atop the Hole in Rock, where you can exit the helicopter for 5 minutes. Take photos of the surrounding cliffs and natural features before returning to Pahia by helicopter.
Hole in Rock Landing and Walk: (60 minutes)
Your Bay of Islands helicopter flight lands atop the Hole in the Rock for a short walk with a Maori guide. Learn about the region’s historical, cultural and ecological significance, and revel in the fact that few people have visited the rock island this way before.
