RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Soar above the City of Sails in an incredible 40 minute scenic seaplane flight. Experience an exhilarating water take off and landing before heading to a local waterfront restaurant for a beautiful two course meal.
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.
