The Bay of Islands offers some of the best coastal and island scenery in New Zealand, so this helicopter scenic flight offers exceptional views of these beautiful islands leading to the infamous “Hole in the Rock”.

Departing from the beachfront helipad in Paihia the flight heads across Russell with views over to Opua and surrounds before tracking along the stunning peninsula coastline to Cape Brett and it’s lighthouse where you will experience an exciting turn to fly around the Hole in the Rock.

The return portion of the flight fly’s directly over the main islands of the area with birds eye views of their white sandy beaches, inviting turquoise waters and some of the luxurious private residences.

Coming into land you will fly past the Paihia township. An exciting way to see the must-visit hole in the rock while in the Bay of Islands!

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Salt Air has been flying visitors over the Bay of Islands for 30 years! After beginning with a Seaplane operating tours from the Paihia waterfront, Salt Air has grown into a fleet of Helicopters & fixed wing planes operating from the Paihia heli pad, Haruru falls & Kerikeri airports! We wanted to offer Helicopter flights all over NZ in our gifts, and a trip to see the iconic hole in the rock was the perfect experience to add to our repertoire!
