Full Description

For many years visitors have come to the Bay of Islands to venture through this top New Zealand icon the Hole in the Rock on boats, we have flown them over it thousands of times, and it has been admired by many for its unique appearance and history.

Now, with the formal blessing of Motu Kokako Ahuwhenua Trust, you can experience it up close and on foot, landing by helicopter on our exclusive helipad on top of the island. 

Very few people in history, including Maori, have ever ventured on the island in this way before. Being surrounded by steep cliffs (over 150 metres high) and stunning scenery looking towards Cape Brett and its surrounds, this unique landing location will no doubt appeal to the adventurous.

This flight is 35-minutes in total duration which includes a 15-minute landing on the Hole in the Rock hosted by the pilot.

The adventure of the scenic flight, exciting landing on the Hole in the Rock and cultural aspects will combine to reward visitors with a thrilling and utterly unique New Zealand experience.

*Please note all departures are subject to weather and minimum 2 passengers.
