What is more value for money whale watching , boat , plane or helicopter ? Another silly question but for us this is once in a lifetime experience balanced with a budget already battered black and blue ! Thanks for all help . anuj India

You really should wait until the day of the whale watch because weather conditions will favour different options. The boats can be very uncomfortable in rough weather. I would save the heli flight for the mountains around Fox Franz or Milford Sound.

Thank you very much . We have already included a 20 minute helicopter ride with snow landing off Fox Glacier . It will cost us nearly 200 $ per person .
