Wings Over Whales Activity Options

Whale Watching Flight

Fly in an 8-seater Gippsland Aeronaturcs Airvan. This aircraft has high wings and with each seat being a window seat this allows for unobstructed panoramic views of the sea and surrounding landscape.

In a typical flight you will see majestic Sperm Whale preparing for their next dive and up to 500 dusky dolphins playfully swimming. Occasional sightings include Southern Right, Humpback, Fin, Sei, Brynes, Pilot, Southern Bottlenose and Blue Whales. If you are really lucky you may spot Common, Hector’s, Risso’s and Southern Right Whale, Dolphins and Orca!

After your flight, sit back and relax in the log terminal or have a drink in the upstairs lounge overlooking the sea and local mountains. What better way to see whales, whether you have a little time or the whole day seeing whales from the air is a unique experience.

The flight also takes in the spectacular scenery and craggy coastline. Operating from Kaikoura Airport since 1991 with a perfect safety record.
