I like to recommend the Tour with Air Taxi to the Land Diving at Pentecost Island. It is an shocking experience which you will never forget. Don't miss it if you are in Vanuatu between April to the end of June, as this is the only time when you can visit the Land Diving Tours Festival. Air Taxi offers a... More

We did the greatest Gaua tour in March with Paul and it was a highlight of our trip. Flying right over a steaming volcano then landing on the huge crater lake was spectacular. It is a very different experience going from flying through the air to racing across the surface of the water in the same vehicle! Getting to actually... More

Hello Paul, we hope you are well! We hope you remember us from Rah Island. We can't thank you enough for the two trips you made for us. Both were highlights of our trip. As soon as we get back to Santo we will be taking another trip with you. I'm really looking forward to visiting those less accessible volcanoes... More

This tour is not to be missed when visiting Espiritu Santo - I can highly recommend the experience from the very first moment when of climbing into the sea plane until the final touch down. Excilerating and exciting, but always with a complete feeling of safety, even when flying very low over the islands, reefs and water. One of those... More

Having flown some hours in a Jabiru, it was great to do some hands on flying in the buccaneer around Pt Villa seeing the sights from a few hundred feet off the ground. Paul is a great pilot and enjoyable to fly with. He may even tell you a great aviation poem if you ask him nicely. A fly in... More

Took my GF on this for her 40th. We did the 30min Southern Spectacular (I think it was called). Was an excellent adventure, not having done anything like that before. Paul was polite and informative and is a real nice guy. Though it was a 30min flight it seemed like we were up for much longer. It was certainly 30min... More

You will be wowed by the little 3 seater that whisks you between islands. Fun, quick, and you will enjoy pilot Pauls conversation.
