So much fun and highly recommend this! Our guides were knowledgeable and spent so much time showing us the area, you could also tell they loved what they did. I was nervous to fly but it is totally fine and safe. Well worth it.

This is definitely a must do when visiting the Northland. We went by plane (there is also a helicopter tour available). A nice low altitude flight with fantastic views, a few stops by car after the half way touch down on a grass field, and...More

Nice flight over the Bay of Islands but got caught in some rain which spoiled the view. We should have postponed our flight and waited for clearer weather but we had another trip in the afternoon This would be fabulous on a clear day. $...More

Thanks for your review. We always try and avoid the rain and showers for our scenic flights but some days it's harder to achieve - but glad you enjoyed it anyway!

We went on an overcast day but it didn’t matter. The views and the ride are still spectacular. The bays have a beautiful green colour and the islands look magnificent. It is well and truly worth while.

My husband and I, on a whim, seized an opportunity to fly around Northland via Salt Air. It was worth every penny and every second we spent. From the north cape, to the sand dunes, to the visual topography at 2000' up in the sky....More
