Let's go anywhere

With Air Kaikoura

Scenic flights

Kaikoura – Mt Fyffe – Blue Duck Valley – Peninsula – Earthquake Scenic

To appreciate the beauty and contrasts of Kaikoura, there is nothing better than seeing it from the air. Experience for yourself the stunning beauty of a place where mountains meet the sea, and marine life abounds.

Fly past Mt Fyffe, high above the Kaikoura township, taking in the beauty of the Seaward Kaikoura mountain range and Blue Duck Valley; then do some seal-spotting as we make our way back down the rugged Kaikoura coastline with its black sand beaches and breaking white surf. You may even spot large schools of fish on the way. A great way to view the changes to the landscape caused by the 7.8 earthquake of November 2016.

Our Scenic flights are 15, 25 or 35 minutes long. Have a look in our store to see which one works best for you.

Charter flights

Nelson, Rangiora, Christchurch, Golden Bay, Blenheim, Wellington, Masterton – Between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours in each direction, to reach any of these destinations. Mt Cook is just over 2 hours away; combine a private charter flight, with a stop at Mt Cook and maybe a side trip up onto their glaciers, before returning to Kaikoura the same day.  If you only have a short time to experience New Zealand, a private charter flight could help you make the most of your trip.


From $500/hr for up to 3 adults in our Cessna 172, or from $850/hr for up to 6 adults in our GA-8 Airvan.
