View whales and dolphins in their natural environment, and gain an insight into their world.

Kaikoura is home to sperm whales year round, as well as a popular migratory and feeding route for many other species of whales and dolphins. From the air passengers can experience the true magnitude of the world’s largest mammal, the whale. These animals can reach an impressive 18 metres in length and weigh up to 60 tonne!

Wings Over Whales Kaikoura operate high-winged aircraft, which allows each person their own window seat and optimal, unobstructed viewing. All whale watching flights are carried out in accordance with Department of Conservation Marine Mammal Regulations.


Wings over Whales provides comfortable flights with experienced pilots giving an informative in-flight commentary, all at a reasonable cost.

Wings Over Whales' fleet of aircraft includes a 4-seater Cessna 172 as well as an 8-seater Gippsland Aeronautics Airvan. Both aircraft have high wings and with each seatbelt being a window seat this allows for unobstructed panoramic views of the sea and mountains.
