Take in the views of beautiful Rangitoto and the city of Auckland from the sky with a scenic seaplane flight! Lasting for a duration of 20 minutes, this scenic flight will take you up and over the large and popular city of Auckland before venturing out to explore its neighbouring islands.

The adventure isn't all up in the air though, as this adventure will take you cruising out into the middle of the harbour for an exciting water take off! Following take off, you'll glide just 200 metres above the summit of the Rangitoto volcano, you'll soar over the Auckland Museum, fly at eye level with the towering Auckland Sky Tower and fly past the iconic Harbour Bridge. Once it's time to land, you'll make contact with the water again in the harbour.

All flights depart from Wynyard Wharf on a daily basis and take off with a minimum of two adult passengers. This experience is suitable for children aged up to 12 years of age, making this an exciting and memorable adventure for the whole family to enjoy.
