Kaikoura Ultimate Adventure is an incredible experience capturing the best of Kaikoura's magnificent vistas of coastal shores, picturesque landscapes, majestic mountain ranges, and diverse marine wildlife in a way only a helicopter can. Kaikoura's 7.8 magnitude earthquake carved impressions in our landscapes, raising coastal shorelines and impacting the entire mountain range and main highway in the South Island.
Come and see the immense restoration effort by North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery (NCTIR) and alliance of local authorities and businesses to repair the damage.
Soaring above Seaward Kaikoura Ranges, towering over 2500 metres straight out of the Pacific Ocean, or orbiting above our multitude of marine animals including our resident sperm whales, dusky dolphins, and NZ fur seals and other whale species migrating through.
The tour duration is 1 hour and 20 minutes and includes a landing at the newly created Hapuku lake which was formed during the November 2016 earthquake.
