Extended Whalewatch Flight

Kaikoura Whale Watching Heli Flight

Extended Whalewatch


An extended whale-watching heli-flight, flying above Kaikoura’s deep-sea canyon, searching for a Giant Sperm Whale and dolphins.

Trip Overview

​This helicopter flight departs from our beachfront helipads and whisks you to the spectacular environment that plays host to one of the world's largest marine mammals, the magnificent Sperm Whale.

This heli-flight allows you extra time in the whale area to view these majestic creatures of the deep, a better option for when the whales are feeding further off shore or are holding their breath for longer than expected. The longer flight time also gives you the possibility of viewing dolphins. 

You'll also have a better chance to view any transient baleen whales, which typically have short surface intervals (1-4 breaths) followed by long periods under water (often 2-5 minutes). The longer flight time gives us longer wait for them.

Approx 40 minute flight. Minimum numbers apply for flight to proceed.
