Kaikoura Whales by Helicopter

  • Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Christchurch, Canterbury
  • Product code: KAIWHALES

One of our most memorable adventures is a helicopter flight to

see the whales of Kaikoura. Fly north from Christchurch following

the pristine coastline with magnificent views of the Canterbury

Plains and in the distance the spectacular Southern Alps. After

landing in Kaikoura you will be transferred to the Whale Watch

helicopter team.

Being airborne provides the ultimate vantage point to explore

Kaikoura and its many natural wonders. Experience the true

scale and majesty of whales in their natural habitat, as your pilot

gently manoeuvres the helicopter to maintain the best possible

view. The sight of a whale diving is something you will never

forget, the huge tail rising high out of the water as it begins its

decent to the heart of the ocean.

The large pods of dolphins will delight you as they play, jumping

and spinning across the waves. Explore the unique and rugged

coastline, then fly in awe amongst the towering peaks of the

Kaikoura seaward ranges.

After your flight, why not stop for a delicious fish & chip lunch,

or experience fine dining at one of Canterbury’s award-winning

wineries as an optional extra?

Allow 3 hours. 

Minimum passenger fares are required for trip to depart.

0 - 2 years old infant free of charge, must be seated on a fare paying passenger.
