Great crew, well managed flight, you don't even get your feet wet. High flying. I recommend their additional digital photo package, a personal movie and about 120 still high resolution photos from an attached go-pro camera. Good value for those priceless memories. Recommended

Amazing views and friendly staff who are experienced in what they do. Gliding 1300ft up is the best way to see all of the bay of islands! Definitely recommend this awesome experience for all ages!!!

Hi Larry, Yes that is our maximum weight but if the conditions are perfect no problems to fly you together. If not then we would just fly you separately which is just as awesome.
