South Pacific Helicopters is a local family owned and operated company. Dan and Monique Stevenson first opened this company in October of 2016. Unfortunately, a few short weeks later, a major earthquake struck Kaikōura completely cutting off access to the town, and changing the landscape forever. Daniel and the South Pacific employees were invaluable to the recovery and relief effort, working tirelessly on the rebuild to restore access to the town of Kaikōura 

After a year and a day, roads once again reopened to Kaikōura and tourism returned to the town. Our goal is to share the beauty of Kaikōura, as well as the local marine life which make this place one of the best in the world for marine wildlife encounters. With every tour we convey our passion for this beautiful place and offer exceptional customer service to provide one-of-a-kind and unforgettable experiences.
