Quick & easy bookings for Taupos Floatplanes
Flightseeing at its best! Discover NZ’s most scenic & spectacular vistas.
Enjoy a unique flightseeing experience over Tongariro National Park, the Bay of Plenty and, of course, Great Lake Taupo! Scenic flights by seaplane are a magical way of gaining a true perspective of one of NZ’s most scenic regions.
Get on board our high-wing Cessna 206 seaplane for a Bay of Plenty/Taupo scenic flight you won’t forget: experience your take-off (and landing) from the water, then enjoy unrestricted views, looking down on sparkling lakes, snow-capped mountains and volcanoes, geothermal wonders, rolling surf beaches and lush forest. Check out our scheduled scenic flights, or book one of our packaged combos.
In the summer our scenic flights operate daily (except Christmas Day) from 8:30am until 5.30pm (twilight flights available for advanced bookings only!), weather-permitting. Our winter flightseeing schedule runs from 9:00am, weather-permitting.
Why drive when you can fly to this geothermal paradise. Experience a water landing on the Waikato River before stepping off the plane to take a walk around the amazing silica terraces, steaming geysers, boiling mud pools and geothermal cave of Orakei Korako, situated amongst lush New Zealand bush. Rejoin the Floatplane afterwards for your return trip to Taupo via the Wairakei steam field and Huka Falls.
