This was an amazing place to visit, we just loved our helicopter Pilot Kurtis Smyth he was very informative, easy to talk to and a very talented pilot. Loved White Island although the sulphur was very strong on the day we were there, cool to land on a volcano.

Wonderful way to experience White Island. Highly recommended. The flight over and back was smooth and saw a pod of dolphins.
