Dave was an excellent pilot and a knowledgeable guide. White Island is uniquely interesting and worth both the time and cost.

30 minute travel time and landing on active volcano was a tremendous excursion.Pilot and staff were very accommodating. Walking near the active volcano was very interesting and we felt we were walking on the moon .Flying there passing remote islands also very interesting

We flew to, and landed on White Island. For us it was a once in a lifetime experience and well worth it. Our pilot was a great guide on the island and pointed out many features of the volcano, the scientific equipment and former workings on the island. We were very impressed with his professionalism.

Amazing experience. Dave our Pilot was very knowledgeable about the Island, both Volcanic and historically. We had chosen to go via Helicopter to avoid the sea journey, but we also gained a more intimate experience on the island as we where the only ones on the Heli tour for that morning. The flight in and out is also out of... More

This was a great present for my husband. We both loved it and got to see our home from a different view. Our pilot was full of information and it was a great flight.
