White Island Helicopter Flight
White Island is an active volcano in the middle of the sea. Located 52 kilometres off the Bay of Plenty coastline, White Island is a link in a chain of volcanoes called the Pacific Ring of Fire. Fly over the rugged, unspoilt coastline of this volcanic island, viewing moon-like surfaces, steaming craters, flocks of seabirds and sulphur-yellow landscapes. You will see the remains of the old sulphur works, destroyed by a White Island eruption.
During the flight, keep your eyes peeled for sea life such as schools of fish and dolphins.
This is a flight only and does not include the crater landing and tour.
If you wish to land on White Island see our White Island Tour product for crater landings and volcanic tours.
