Full description
On this 50-minute helicopter ride, fly past Mount Maunganui and head up the coast to Coromandel. During your flight path, see loads of beautiful private bays and absorb the views of the vast inner Tauranga Harbor. During the summer season be sure to keep your eyes peeled for sea life.

As you arrive to the coast, watch as the scenery changes from imposing cliffs to heavenly isolated beaches. Land on a beautiful secluded beach and hop out of the helicopter for a walk around. Take photos, enjoy a light refreshment, and listen to your pilot as they tell you about the local area before heading back towards Tauranga.

Head inland over dense bush and farmland to the Waihi Gold Mine, you won't be able to miss it. The best way to see the mine is from above. Enjoy the remainder of your ride as the flight path returns via the impressive Tauranga Harbor and Matakana Farmlands.
