Start your tour at our town office and enjoy complimentary transport down to the helipads where you receive a brief informative talk and safety briefing from our experienced pilots before heading out over the Kaikoura Whale Sanctuary in search of the resident sperm whale population.
As we head out over the Pacific Ocean you are surrounded on all sides by the gorgeous scenery of Kaikoura, with the coastal mountains as a backdrop. Slowly orbit the whales so you can see the whole animal from head to tail, minimising your impact on the animal while maximising your time and viewing, its perfect for photographers. Cruise back along the coastline keeping an eye out for any other animals that may be around, including our resident population of dusky dolphins and New Zealand fur seals, as well as any other whale species that may be migrating through including blue, humpback, fin, and killer whales. 
After completing your wildlife viewing we head for the Seaward Kaikoura Mountain Ranges, which tower 2500 meters straight out of the Pacific Ocean. Fly along the coastline to see the impact from the magnitude 7.8 earthquake that changed the entire landscape of the coastal mountains and view the new Papatea Fault where it scars the land and runs out to sea. Fly inland along the Clarence River Valley and back up through the mountain range for a landing at the turquoise waters of the newly created Hapuku Dam Lake, which was created during the November 2016 earthquake.
Enjoy the scenery as we fly back through the mountain range to land back at the helipads where complimentary transport is waiting to take you back to town or your hotel.
