But sadly the whale watching not so good. We did see whales but not THE Sperm Whale! Yes, there is now only 1 sperm whale in the area since the 2011 earthquake and when we were there no tour operator had seen the sperm whale...More

Thank you Linda for taking the time to review us. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the helicopter flight and are sorry we weren’t able to show you a sperm whale. Unfortunately they were feeding very far off the coast for about a month...More
At first, we try to take the boat in order to see the whales. After few cancellations because of bad weather, we decided to take the helicopter. We saw 2 whales and more than a hundred dolphins! The sites were beautiful and the pilot (Aharon)...More
Thank you Erez for such a great review! We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your flight. Enjoy the rest of your travels and thank you for flying with us.
This is a slightly expensive but very good way of seeing large whales off the coast of Kaikoura. Appreciate that helicopters are expensive to run but without a slight reduction in the published price I might not have done this trip. However, it was well...More
Thank you for taking the time to review us and for sharing your wonderful fluke shot. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels, and thanks again for flying with us.
Our whole experience with Kaikoura Helicopters was great, from the initial booking over the phone with Aaron and Lloyd to the actual 30-min whale watching helicopter flight. We were lucky enough to see a pod of Orcas and two Sperm Whales during our flight with...More
Thank you very much for such a wonderful review and the great photos. We’re so glad to hear you enjoyed your flight and got to see not only sperm whales, but orca too! Thank you for flying with us.
Seeing whales was one of the main reasons we came to Kaikoura, and although the sky was clear, the seas were so rough that the whale watching trips warned 'severe sea sickness likely'. And who wants to spend three and a half hours on a...More
Hi Rick, thank you for the wonderful review and the amazing photos. To see three such playful blue whales is a rare sight indeed. You truly did have a once in a lifetime flight! Thank you for flying with us.
Fabulous experience today flying with Aaron on the 40 minute Earthquake Tour with my Mum and Dad. Mum is an amateur geologist - and fascinated by rock formations and faultlines. She wasn’t disappointed. The 40 minutes passed so quickly, with a wonderful commentary from Aaron,...More
Thank you for the fantastic review and photos. The Earthquake Scenic certainly is a spectacular flight. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed it.
Many thanks to Dave & Aaron (our pilot) for a fantastic 40 minute flight yesterday. We saw & photographed 3 Sperm whales and also went up into the mountains to see some of the terrible 2016 earthquake damage. The time literally flew past & we...More
Thank you for your wonderful review. It sounds like you had a truly amazing flight.
What an amazing experience yesterday. I am still wearing a huge smile on my face the day after. On our tour we got to see a Humpback Whale, a Fin Whale and a Blue Whale. Absolutely awesome. Thanks to the whole team @ Kaikoura Helicopters....More
Thank you for the great review Janka. It certainly was a special flight, as it is rare to see a Humpback Whale, Fin Whale and Blue Whale all in one day! Thank you again for flying with us.
My wife and I did the top and tail ride. We rode over the ocean and found some whales and then headed up to the top of Mount Fyffe. Aaron the pilot was extremely knowledgeable and informative about what we were seeing and really did...More
Thank you for the wonderful review. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your flight with us.
We booked for later in the afternoon, but received a call to see if we could depart asap because a whale was due to surface soon. Without further ado, we got to the offices, checked in & took off. Minutes later we were circling as...More
Thank you, we’re glad you enjoyed the trip.
