We did the heli cruise which I thought was great value for rnoney. The first part had us taken by motor boat around the Bay of Islands being dropped off at 2 islands to explore. We then we taken out to the helicopter landing pad which is on a raft in the middle of one of the bays and flown back to Paihia after a scenic flight around the Bay. A great experience and highly recommended

Thanks very much for your review of our Heli Cruise, great to hear you had such a good day with us. We see you also enjoyed our Cape Reinga Tour a few years ago, so wonderful to have you as a regular customer - come and see us again next time you are in the Bay of Islands!

Fantastic to get a recommendation for our new product to land on top of the Hole in the Rock, we have certainly found that everyone that has landed so far has loved it. Thanks for taking the time to provide a review.

We did the heli island escape and it was the best money we spent on our honeymoon. The helicopter ride was a great way to see the Bay of Islands and we were dropped at a beautiful and secluded area with provisions for a thoroughly pleasant afternoon. What really sets Salt Air apart though, is the staff. They were friendly, obliging and knowledgeable and they really made us feel special.

A fantastic way to visit Cape Reinga. We went on the GA8 single engined aircraft. Very comfortable for 7 passengers. Expert flying by our pilot James and met at the Cape by another great guide Stuart. A very enjoyable day in a nice small group. Many personal touches (watter, muffins and sleds) made it a great experience and certainly and unforgetable part of our holiday.
