Great tour on chopper with a very knowledgeable pilot. Best I have found worldwide. Would have like to have gone and landed at the Cape lighthouse maybe next time. A definite must for anyone. Very reasonable level pricing too.

An absolute must, great commentary and the best area I have ever been across. Not only did Cape Reinga Tour (a must for everyone) came back to Bay of Islands Tour preferred the first purely for the scenery
