Wings over Whales

45 minutes

Price from £95 per person

On a typical flight see the majestic Sperm Whale preparing for his next dive and up to 500 Dusky Dolphins cavorting with each other. On occasion sightings include Southern Right, Humpback, Fin, Sei, Brydes, Pilot, Southern Bottlenose and the mighty Blue Whales, and also Common, Hectors, Risso's and Southern Right Whale Dolphins and of course, Orca, although these are all less frequent visitors to the area.  You may also fly over Kaikoura Peninsula and see evidence of Maori fortifications (Pa sites), New Zealand Fur Seals resting and the Kaikoura township itself.  For some, conditions will allow a spectacular flight over the Seaward Kaikoura Ranges rising to approximately 2800m. After the flight, relax in the Log Terminal over a light meal and drink (own expense). An upstairs lounge looks over the sea and local mountains and the gift shop offers mementos of your experience.
