Mit flew us from Karamea to Browns Hut with our mountain bikes last week to ride the Heaphy.
Absolutely fantastic service, great price, nice aeroplane and friendly, knowledgeable pilot. Mit was very accommodating to our plans (which changed a few times!!) and we really enjoyed our flight. Made doing the Heaphy an absolute breeze. Would highly recommend Adventure Flights Golden Bay to anyone :)

This is a must do in Golden Bay - I was nervous but have always wanted to go up in a small plane and Mit was so great and knowledgable!! I had such a fun time, loved the view from up above of Golden Bay and learning more about the area. Really affordable for both short and long flights and Mit makes everything from booking to directions to flying super easy. Enjoy the view!!

What a great morning of flying with Mit, well versed in local knowledge and a great pilot to cap it off. We spent over an hour travelling up over the mountains to Whanganui Inlet, past the most eastern point in New Zealand which Mit pointed out, over the Archway Islands, along the Sand Spit and then around the Abel Tasman National Park. Mit was relaxed and informative the whole time even going through a little turbulence. Overall a great experience at a very affordable price. Would recommend this as option when in Golden Bay.

We really wanted to do a scenic flight but they're so ridiculously expensive and we were on a super tight budget! but we found a 15 minute flight with Adventure flights which was totally worth it and only cost around $40! Really cool, really worth it, pilot was awesome, really funny and chilled, couldn't really fault it, was just perfect and so worth the money! :D

The Heaphy Track is a NZ highlight but we found it difficult to work out our transport options. The track itself is around 80kms but it is approximately 460kms between the track ends by road. That potentially means a long drive or bus ride somewhere. After considering bus/shuttle costs and additional accommodation which would be required it made sense to look at flying and that is what we did. We contacted Mit of Adventure Flights Golden Bay and it all became simple. We left our vehicle at the Karamea aerodrome where Mit picked us up. He flew us along the Heaphy Track route and pointed out the huts and track features along the way before dropping onto an airstrip in a paddock near Brown Hut. It was the smoothest "up and down" that I have ever had. It was also my wife's first flight in a small plane and she loved it.
Although the flight made sense logistically, thanks to Mit it was also a highlight of our "Heaphy" experience - Fly with Mit - you won't be disappointed !
