South Coast Discovery Helicopter Flight

Scenic Flights Sightseeing Tours
Explore beyond Wellington City with a helicopter flight west towards the majestic Makara Wind Farm, taking in the rugged south coast, Karori Rock Lighthouse, and Cook Strait.

Enjoy a spectacular helicopter flight over Wellington’s pristine southern coastline. Pass closely by the majestic Makara Wind Farm where you will get a fantastic view of the giant windmills, remarkable examples of modern engineering and sustainable energy.

It's then flying south to the wild, dramatic coastline where numerous seal colonies hug the rugged shores as waves batter into the towering cliffs.  Spot Karori Rock Lighthouse, an enduring testament to the shipping dangers of the Cook Strait, one of the world’s most notorious stretches of water.  On a clear day you may see views of the Marlborough Sounds, the top of the South Island.

On returning to Wellington Harbour you will enjoy an incredible view of the capital city, the surrounding landscape and its impressive landmark buildings.  Landing opportunity for photos if weather permits.

Allow 40 minutes (22 minute flight).  Minimum passenger numbers apply.
