White Island Helicopter Flightseeing

Imagine flying around an active volcano…in the middle of the sea! This is your chance! Located 32 miles or 52 km off the Bay of Plenty coastline, White Island is a link in a chain of volcanoes called the Pacific Ring of Fire. You fly around the rugged, unspoilt coastline of this giant, viewing moon-like surfaces, steaming craters, flocks of sea birds and sulphur-yellow landscapes. You’ll also see the remains of the old sulphur works, destroyed by a White Island eruption. On the return, keep your eyes peeled for the abundant sea life such as schools of fish and dolphins.
