2 travelers
    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Vanuatu Helicopters, Lini Highway The Seawall, Nambawan Café, Port Vila, Efate Vanuatu

    After a safety briefing you will be required to put on a life jacket which will be handed out to you. A glass bottom boat will transport you to the floating heli pad about 2 minutes from the wharf. You are guaranteed a window seat in our helicopters. The pilots are extremely skilled and professional and have all the local knowledge to pass on to you as you fly over the township and the harbor spotting all the fabulous resorts and houses and picturesque bays. You may even spot a Dugong or two as some reside in the harbor most days. A great flight for those wanting to see Port Vila’s beauty from the air!

    On my last visit to Port Vila, I went on the short 7-minute helicopter tour to see many of Vila's sights from a new perspective. I was apprehensive at first as it was my first ride in a helicopter but it was a wonderful experience...More
