Wings over Whales

Wings over Whales offers a very special and unique experienceEmbedded_Map_Kaikoura.jpg of viewing whales from the air.

After boarding one of the two small aircraft, get ready to set off on the action packed 30 minute flight. During the flight you will see the majestic sperm whale preparing for his next dive and up to 500 dusky dolphins playfully swimming.

Occasional whale sightings include the southern right, humpback, fin, sei, Bryde's, pilot, southern bottlenose and blue whales.

The smaller of the two aircraft is a 4 seater Cessna 172 and the larger is an 8 seater Gippsland GA8 Airvan. The experienced pilots provide an in-flight commentary whilst you are enjoying the panoramic views of the sea and mountains and looking out for whales.

Wings over Whales is located at the Kaikoura Airfield which is about 8km south of the Kaikoura township.
