Saw there sign on street front advertising short flight for 99 Australian dollars. This price is false as when we went to book we we're told the price had increased. The company needs to correct signage and website immediately.More

Highly recommend, you get picked up and dropped back to the ship, Duty Free is a short walk away at the yellow building.

This is a newer flight which is worth every cent. We flew to the extinct volcano and discovered it was too cloudy to land up on the rim, so we landed at the lower level, and hiked to the rim. Fantastic views! We jokingly said...More

My husband has been in a helicopter before, it was my first time. The pilot had great knowledge and he showed us what Vanuatu is all about, mountains, waterfalls, beaches and coves. An experience I will never forget.

Had a fantastic time, the pilot was great and pointed everything out to us and we felt very safe and was sad when the ride was over. I would definitely recommend this excursion to everyone

We booked prior because we weren't there for long and wanted to fit as much in in our time. We paid directly to the helicopter pilot and he was great and even better he was from Melbourne
