Our pilot’s favourite flight!
Fly past the iconic Mauao (Mount Maunganui) heading up the coast to the Coromandel.
During your flight, see beautiful private bays and absorb the views of the vast inner Tauranga harbour. Keep your eyes peeled for sea life during the summer season.
As you arrive at the coast the scenery changes to imposing cliffs over heavenly isolated beaches.
Landing on a beautiful secluded beach you will be able to stretch your legs and grab some great selfies.
Enjoy a light refreshment as you head back towards Tauranga while your pilot provides you with knowledge of the local area.
Fly inland over dense bush and farmland to the Waihi Gold Mine you can't miss this as it is 1km wide and 260m deep! The best way to witness the mine is from above, so you'll have the best seat in the house.
The flight returns via the imposing Tauranga harbour and Matakana farmlands.
Private (non shared) flights available on request
WHAT TO BRING
