The Bay of Islands – Summer sights

Tags

IMG_1305.JPG

Ever a popular spot to watch the sun set, Russell’s waterfront offers a spectacular view at any time of the day.  Last week, the bay was home to a number of visiting super yachts, here to compete in the Millennium Cup.  The fleet provided quite a sight on the water.  This year’s winner was Tawera – read more of The 2017 Millennium Cup results and race highlights here.

Summer is proving a busy one for the region which is welcoming visitors from around the country and the globe.  That trend appears set to continue with The Bay of Islands soon to be seen on billboards across Melbourne in an upcoming campaign by Tourism New Zealand.  The area was also the chosen location for the latest Air New Zealand safety video (Pictured below: Long Beach in the ‘Summer of Safety’)

The Bay of Islands – Sky high views

Helicopter charter Bay of Islands

New Zealand offers stunning views from land, sea and air.  With its beautiful coastline, the flight north to the Bay of Islands from Auckland, can be nothing short of spectacular.  In addition to fixed wing craft, helicopters can make for a short and sweet ride.  There are a number of helicopter charter operators available on the Auckland Airport website: Auckland Airport Helicopter Charter.

The NZ Herald reported this week that a new terminal and hangar is due to open in November catering to increase demand from luxury tourist market.  The new terminal will be 200m from the international terminal, allowing helicopters to be Auckland Airport-based.  It will be built, owned and managed by Helicopter Me.  Along with many operators, they offer packages for flights and luxury accommodation to places such as Eagles Nest and Kauri Cliffs.  Locally, Salt Air in the Bay of Islands also offers charter flights.

However, it is not just luxury tourists who are looking to the sky.  New Zealand property owners and those such as my clients who are in the market for property, find helicopters an efficient and convenient way to travel.  Given the layout of the Bay of Islands with its waterways, peninsulas and islands, an aerial view is certainly a quick way to get your bearings.  It is also a very enjoyable way to take in the superb views.
That’s the thing about helicopters though – they may be undeniably fast but can leave you wanting to spend more time in the sky.
