I recently flew by helicopter to White Island with Steph as our pilot. She was absolutely wonderful and also gave us a very informative commentary. White Island is really something to experience as its in continuous eruption and before landing in the crater and after taking off we got to circle the island from above. Walking around the island and visiting the old sulphur mine while vents emit sulphur and steam was truly exhilirating. Its an experience I'll never forget and it was a picture perfect day. The team at Volcanic air safaris were all very helpful and friendly and even had a photo memento available when I got back which I had the option to buy. I paid $25 for it and for what you get it should be much cheaper. I'd say $10 or 15 would be a more reasonable price.. All the way I was looked after. I was picked up from my accomodation and bought back by one of their float plane pilots, David, and although the White island tour costs a bit it is in my opinion well worth every cent. You cant really appreciate New Zealand until youve done this.
