Awesome flight out over Farewell Spit. Amazing views. Decent banter from Mit made the experience even better. It’s quite handy that he is also very good at flying planes. 100% would recommend.

Flying with Mit over Golden Bay and the Abel Tasman National Park was an incredible highlight of our New Zealand trip! The views were absolutely breathtaking and Mit was a professional pilot and very entertaining tour guide! We would absolutely recommend this experience with him.

The landing strip is quite close to Browns Hut, a 20 to 30 minute walk. To get an exact idea I would advise emailing Mit directly at Adventure Flights.
