Scenic Helicopter Hole in the Rock Landing

Things to do

For the first time in New Zealand’s history and exclusive to Salt Air in conjunction with the Motu Kōkako Ahu Whenua Trust, we can now offer an unforgettable adventure to set foot on top of the iconic Hole in the Rock – Motu Kōkako.

For many years visitors have come to the Bay of Islands to venture through the infamous Hole in the Rock on boats, we have flown them over it thousands of times to view it's unique appearance and learn it's history. Now it can be experienced up close and on foot, landing by helicopter on our exclusive helipad on top of the island. Visitors have the option to land on the island with a 15-minute stop with the pilot.

Very few people in history have ever ventured on the island in this way before. Being surrounded by steep cliffs and stunning scenery it's sure to be a memorable and unique experience you won't forget.
