Departing from Auckland’s Rosedale Heliport on the North Shore, your helicopter will lift off across the glistening Waitemata harbour towards the Devonport naval base, capturing views of Auckland’s Harbour Bridge, flying over the Viaduct Harbour and Westhaven Marina before flying past the Sky Tower and over the lush greenness of Auckland Domain, a central recreational park. Heading east we pass popular inner harbour beaches and suburbs of St Heliers, Kohimarama, Mission Bay and Orakei Basin.
Fly over Rangitoto Island, the largest, youngest and one of the least modified of about 50 volcanic cones and craters in the Auckland volcanic field. The stunning city vista can be seen in the distance from Rangitoto’s summit on the flight back to Auckland, prior to returning to the heliport.
Flight duration approximately 18 minutes.
INFANTS: The Civil Aviation Authority stipulates that we operate our aircraft in line with the manufacturer’s guidelines, one of these guidelines is that there is maximum number of passengers allowed on the aircraft, adult, child or infant. Therefore, when an infant is booked on our flights and sits on the lap of a caregiver, we are required to leave a seat free for this infant, thus the total maximum number of passengers remains the same. This is why you will see a charge for infants.
