Immerse yourself in the history and culture that Auckland City has to offer. This package will allow you to not only experience the majestic Hauraki Gulf from a unique perspective both on water and in air but also taste the essence of Auckland at one of our top iconic waterfront restaurants.

Once on board the aircraft, passengers will cruise into the Auckland Harbour Aerodrome ready for take-off, enjoying views of yachts and the city skyline from the water.

Once airborne, passengers are flown past Devonport, Lake Pupuke, Auckland’s youngest volcano Rangitoto, Motutapu Island, the top of Waiheke Island, Motuihe Island, Brown’s Island, Mechanic’s Bay and the Auckland City skyline. The Pilot will provide an extensive historical commentary throughout the flight.

Passengers land back in the Auckland Harbour and cruise into North Wharf for disembarking.

Passengers are then escorted to either Marvel Grill or Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron in the local viaduct area where they will enjoy a 2 course meal with a glass of house wine. There is no time limit on the dining.

This experience is part of the Responsible Range as it was awarded an Enviro-Gold endorsement and was a nominee in the 100% Pure NZ award.
