Salt Air - Northland & Bay of Islands
Northland - best seen from above
Salt Air based in Paihia offers you a variety of helicopter scenic flights around the maritime playground that is the Bay of Islands. With spectacular coastline views and stunning island scenery, our scenic flights, island escapes and exclusive package options will leave you with an appreciation of our local history, culture and coastal environment.
Our most popular scenic flights include the 20 minute and 30 minute options from Paihia that provide excellent coverage over the Bay of Islands area to Cape Brett and the Hole in the Rock. The Bay of Islands has some of the best coastal and island scenery in New Zealand so these flights offer exceptional views with bird's eye views of white sandy island beaches, inviting turquoise waters and some of the luxurious private residences.
Our newest helicopter adventure gives you the rare opportunity to land on top of the infamous Hole in the Rock. Known as “Motukokako” by Maori, the island is steeped in Maori history and of special spiritual significance, it is a truly unique and privileged experience to set foot on this previously inaccessible location.
