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 15 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.
