WHAT YOU VISIT
Bay of Plenty Helicopter Flightseeing
Prepare for jaw-dropping views during a 12-minute helicopter flight over the colorful, historical and cultural sites that define the Bay of Plenty. Feel the excitement as you lift off of the helipad and soar into the wild blue yonder. The narrated flight includes fly-overs of Mount Maunganui Beach, a white sand surf beach that's been crowned the "Best Beach in New Zealand" by TripAdvisor and around Mauao, an extinct volcanic cone that's commonly known as The Mount. As you zoom through the harbor entrance and out over the long, white sandy coastline look out below and you may be lucky enough to see sharks sunbathing in the shallows! Another sight to behold is Matakana, a 12-mile-long island that been continuously populated for centuries by Maori tribes. Before returning to the helipad, you'll have panoramic views of Tauranga Harbor and your waiting ship.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Your sky-high perspective gives you the ultimate views as far as the eye can see, allowing for photo opportunities from the comfort of your seat.
