Scenic Helicopter Flight and Jetboat Adventure

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from €608,13 EUR / Adult
Bring your adventurous spirit and set out on an excursion that pairs high-flying excitement with high-speed aquatic fun. Begin by boarding a helicopter and taking to the skies above Akaroa. You'll fly along the rugged coastline of Banks Peninsula and venture above the surrounding bays, including Taylor's Mistake and Godley Heads. Zip over the bustling port of Lyttelton before soaring above the Port Hills and across the sweeping city of Christchurch. Touch down along the Waimakariri River, where you'll meet up with your jetboat driver for the day's second adventure. Hop into a high-speed jetboat and hold on as your pilot hits the throttle and you zoom across the river beneath the towering walls of Waimakariri Canyon. Witness the Southern Alps, cascading waterfalls and breathtaking scenery, as you rumble through rapids and glide through calm stretches. Afterward your thrill ride, re-board your helicopter for the exhilarating flight home.
