Much better than helicopter was this scenic flight over lakes and vulcanos with the floatplane. More space and windows to shoot photos from the spectacular landscape and of course waterstarts and landings on Rorotura's lake are absolutely special. Easy and uncomplicated booking even short term bookings are no problem thanks to a very professional and friendly office.

We did the 3hours White Island helicopter trip a week ago and we loved it. There is 45-50 min helicopter to white Island, then an hour walk on the volcano and another 45-50min back to Rotorua. The guide (Paul) was very cool, providing us some very interesting information during the flight and also during the walk on the volcano. This is not a cheap activity but it is worth it if you can afford it.

Our helicopter flight & tour to White Island with Volcanic Air Safaris in early October was incredible. Our pilot, Danielle, was very knowledgeable (answering every question we had) and patient when we wanted a few more photos in a spot before moving on.

We almost passed up going on this excursion, but we are so glad we didn't. It was more certainly a highlight from our entire 2 week vacation. Worth every penny!

The weather just about allowed us to have the flight, with the sun out on the island when we were flying over it. Angela, our pilot, kept us entertained in a very informative, expertly and friendly way which made the time fly past (excuse the pun). Flying out from Rotorua was a treat in looking at the ever changing landscape, and once at White Island all the reports we had read about the island came true. Amazing feeling in flying over an active volcano, feeling the bumps as the hot air rises. We went round the island 3 times, getting ever closer which allowed us brilliant views and the chance of taking plenty of photographs. Our trip was over too quickly and the flight back to land on the lake was lovely. A trip to thoroughly recommend.

We gave my parents for their wedding anniversary gift a scenic flight which we took on Mothers' Day - the weather was perfect and the trip was amazing. Dorienne in the office was very helpful and went out of her way to accommodate our group - thank you! Phil was our pilot and was very informative and gave us a wonderful experience - what a smooth landing. I urge local residents of Rotorua to take this trip to see our beautiful scenery from a different perspective. Top marks all around for this company and their friendly staff.
