Takaka: Farewell Spit and Northern Abel Tasman Scenic Flight

1. Takaka: Farewell Spit and Northern Abel Tasman Scenic Flight

Start your experience at Takaka Airport where you will check in for your flight. Be welcomed and briefed by an experienced and knowledgable pilot before boarding a light aircraft - either an 8-seat GA8 Airvan or a 4-seat Piper Archer. Experience the thrill of the take-off and you are in the air! Fly alongside the magnificent Kahurangi National Park to the dramatic stacked cliffs and islands of the West Coast. Circle over the famous Wharariki Sea Arches and Pillar Point then fly up Farewell Spit, New Zealand's longest Sandspit. Cross over to Separation Point, and view the stunning golden beaches of the northern Abel Tasman National park and the Awaroa estuary before returning back to Takaka. During your tour, you will be wearing a headset so you can talk to others and the pilot, and listen to the pilot's commentary about the places you fly over. This is one of the most diverse scenic flights in New Zealand.

Arrived at the airport and was greeted by friendly staff, they had a problem with their fuelling so asked if we would mind stopping to refuel before completing our flight.(we were more than happy to do so). Our pilot was friendly and informative though out the flight.

You have a good view from all places, the pilot was very friendly. Since only Germans were on board and the pilot spoke perfect German, communication was very easy. We had a lot of fun. Highly Recommended.
