Brilliant trip, well organised and worth the cost. We were blessed with good weather which meant that the views were magnificent. There was a fun bit at the end which involved us sandboarding down a giant dune before we got back on the plane.

Highly recommended and good value for money. Fog delayed the morning flight and therefore our departure by over an hour which could have perhaps been handled better by the ground staff. Only suggestion to improve is that the worst part of it was bouncing along in their bus to and from Paihia and the airstrip for approx 40 mins each way. We had a hired car and would have much preferred to have driven ourselves but were not aware that this was an option, or the distance involved, until afterwards. All in all though an experience to be remembered!!

Beautiful views.

I'd never flown in such a small aircraft before but it was incredible and I felt safe and secure the entire time.

I had a brilliant time

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip - very well organised and our pilot Dan was extremely good and informative throughout. Would recommend this as a must for anybody wishing to see the wonderful landscape in its entirity of the Bay of Islands. Trip was nicely broken up by some fun features and a welcome cup of coffee!
