South Westland Bounty

Top quality fishing and hunting makes for one heck of an adventure.  What makes it spectacular is the ability to fish and hunt in South Westlands World Heritage area.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my flight cost?

Give us a call, send an email or submit a form – we are happy to send you a custom quote for your adventure.  We can provide a per person or helicopter price.

Costs generally differ depending on: helicopter flight time, helicopter type, number of people & standby time.

How much gear can I take?

The amount of gear you can take depends on an overall weight allowance and how it is distributed or balanced within the helicopter.

This weight is different for each helicopter.  When you book you will be advised of how much gear you will be able to take with you in terms of weight.

If some items dont fit in the helicopter they may be able to be slung to your destination.

A tip when packing for the helicopter:  pack your gear in soft bags.  Soft bags can fit into nooks and crannys that boxes just can’t!

What is your refund policy?

We offer full refunds for flights cancelled due to weather conditions.
