Wings Over Whales

Wings Over Whales

on-the-day excursion


Short description

Take in the sheer size of both the world’s largest mammals and the South Island’s northeast coast on a whale watching flight


Recommended for:
Activity adventure | Wildlife

With whales weighing up to 60 tonnes and growing up to 18 metres in length, it’s often only possible to appreciate their true magnitude from the air. This half-hour flight is your chance to see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat, tracking their graceful movements and delightful idiosyncrasies from a height of 150 metres. You’ll even be able to spot their glassy ‘footprints’ on the water’s surface, caused by the movement of their powerful tail. Your high-winged aircraft means that each passenger will enjoy optimal, unobstructed viewing from their window seat; it’s ideal for photography, not just of the marine life but looking back to the verdant Kaikoura Peninsula, backdropped by snow-capped peaks.
