Soar over the beautiful island of Efate in a helicopter during this small-group adventure. Take a glass-bottom boat for a quick ride to the helicopter pontoon to board your flight. Fly over white, sandy beaches, lush rainforest, and scenic waterfalls over the course of 10 minutes. Land at Summit Botanical Gardens and quickly explore the area before heading back to the point of departure.

Enjoy sweeping views along the Vanuatu coast on a Port Vila helicopter trip that lifts off from a floating helipad just a short distance from the wharf. With a perspective and access that you can’t get from sea level, spot clear harbors, elegant resorts, and exclusive properties as the pilot points out landmarks on the ground below.

See these incredible Turtles from the air then up close and personal!

This tour departs from the seafront in Port Vila, flying you past the stunning Cascade waterfalls and Hideaway island then down into the beautiful Havannah Harbour, where you have a good chance of seeing turtles and Dugongs swimming in their natural environment, before landing at the conservation sanctuary. 

Get up close and personal with the turtles and meet the staff who will explain the great conservation work being done at the sanctuary.  Your helicopter flight back passes Lelepa Island with more stunning coastal views before landing back at the seafront.

First time in a helicopter, friendly welcoming staff, no problems. We probably could have done without the garden stopover, but that was the package and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend this company if, like us, you have a bucket list to tick off!

We booked prior because we weren't there for long and wanted to fit as much in in our time. We paid directly to the helicopter pilot and he was great and even better he was from Melbourne

The Resort Transfer to Eratap is approximately 8 mins, not long and it will seem shorter as you will be taking in so much as you fly over the beautiful coastline and township.
