Looking to go whale watching in Kaikoura? Join this 30 minute Kaikoura Whale Watch Scenic Helicopter Flight for one of the best whale watching experiences in New Zealand! Witness whales and dolphins in their natural environment from the air. A whale watching helicopter flight offers marine spotting from a different perspective. Instead of looking out to the horizon from a boat- it is far easier to see the activity and marine life in the water below from a plane. Spot the whales in their element and see their actual size from the panoramic aerial views that you have from above. During the flight, you will also have stunning views of the Kaikoura Peninsula, Seaward Kaikoura Mountain Ranges and the Pacific Ocean. Flights operate daily and complimentary hotel transfers are available from Kaikoura hotels. Book your Kaikoura Whale Watching helicopter flight here!
