Top notch. Rod, our pilot, has over 16,000 hours of flight experience and it showed. We flew through a gorge that was amazing! We were in a R44 (3 passengers). We chose the $540/each flight over Doubtful Sound and it was worth every penny. 2 landings – one deep in a gorge and one on top of a mountain. Amazing!! Rod was the perfect pilot/guide for us. Check out their web site to read about their experience and accomplishments. Their landing pad is right on the water on the main street in Te Anau. Great operation.

My husband and I had a great flight over doubtful sound. Highly recommend this to anyone thing about checking out doubtful sound. It was expensive, but worth the experience. It was great to be able to land and walk around as well in some very scenic areas! The hour went by really quickly!
