Had a great trip over to Waiheke from the Northshore to go Ziplining.
Pilot was fantastic, pointing out all the spots on the shore, flying around the crater on Rangitoto was very cool.
This was a combined package including Helicopter, Ziplne and Ferry home. Very good value for money.
What a great afternoon/evening to fly in a Helicopter. Brother and I had a great time flying around Auckland
We only had a very short amount of time left in our trip to see Auckland and were thrilled with our fantastic flight over Auckland and neighbouring bays and islands. The staff and pilot at HELETRANZ could not have been more helpful, polite & informative.
My husband’s 60th birthday surprise flight from Albany to Waiheke Island. Our Pilot – Nick – was great – happy to take photo’s for us before flying, and after flying; really informative about everything, and happy to answer people’s questions. Thanks so much! We had a blast! (Wish we could travel like this more often!)
Awesome guys, great service, loved the whole process. Took our 71yr old Aunty who is very nervous flyer and worried about he fishing etc and she had a ball, no fears of any of it now. Our pilot was so wonderful helping her out over the rocks and with the fishing. We all had a wonderful time, took great photos and made awesome memories. Love d it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our flight to Stonyridge vineyard on Waiheke with Heletranz. The pilot was terrific and made the flight extra special. Next time we will fly back with Heletranz as well ! Highly recommended
