We thought that Peter did an excellent job introducing us to whale spotting, watching and took time to explain whale habits, their environment and put us in good positions to take photos. We enjoyed the explanations around earthquakes and road restoration works and it was quite spectacular to land & stop for a very cold but spectacular photo on the top of Mt Fyfe. I wonder if pilots or ground crew have any particular tips to offer relating to photographing with telephoto lenses. Maybe high shutter speeds, Tv, auto ISO. The photos we took where good and reasonably in close but not as sharp as I hoped for. Pretty tricky with moving chopper, sea and whale I guess. Overall 10 out of 10. Thank you. Very memorable!

We got an awesome and friendly driver, our guide, Scott, for informative commentary on the way to whale watching activity. Great thanks to Scott for takiing there. Also there was a professional, informative, helpful and friendly team on board. The team tried their best to help tracing the whales and eventually the world’s largest whales, Blue Whales were viewed. Great thanks to the team for making our trip fantastic and unforgettable!

We were told no whales were to be seen and offered a full refund if required. We decided to fly anyway. Our pilot Mike found an orca for us but no other whales so he gave us an amazing flight over the snow capped mountains, it was amazing we had so much fun

Great trip even if the birds were a limited in number. we did get to see a few species up close. Excellent skipper too who knew his stuff.

Perfect conditions, took heaps of photos. Skipper knew lots about the different bird species.
