Kaikoura Marine Life Adventure
On November 14, 2016, shortly after midnight, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Kaikoura, resulting in landslides and major land movement. Whole sections of the seabed rose and the coastline dramatically changed.
This incredible tour lets you see the full extent of what happened, from the air. Also included is a scenic plane or helicopter flight over the ocean to enjoy views of the marine life that Kaikoura is famous for. Then on your way back to base, fly down along the coastline for another chance to witness seals, dolphins and whales in their glorious natural habitat.
Our pilots will personalise this experience for you by sharing their local knowledge and insights of our big backyard as you fly over remarkable sights and landmarks, including; secluded sandy beaches, Gore Bay, Pegasus Bay Winery and more.
We have plenty to share with you and can’t wait for you to experience it.
Bring a camera, sturdy foot ware, and warm clothing – especially for the Rivers and Mountains tour.
Arrive at least 10 minutes before your flight to allow time for a briefing.
