Enjoy the ultimate whale watching experience in Kaikoura with an unforgettable 30-minute scenic plane flight. Take in panoramic views of the sea from the sky and watch with anticipation and awe as you sight some whales and dolphins thriving in their natural environment.
Embark on a scenic plane flight over Kaikoura and see the true magnitude of the world's largest mammal flourishing in the ocean from the sky. Departing from Kaikoura Airport, you'll jet off and fly above the beautiful waters of Kaikoura, where you'll spot the spectacular sperm whales who call this beautiful part of New Zealand home all year round. With optimal and unobstructed viewing from your window seat, take in the magical sight of these giant creatures thriving in the water from tip to toe. You'll orbit around them and grasp how big and magnificent they really are! Make sure to look out for other species of whales and dolphins who swim through Kaikoura as part of their migratory and feeding route.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
