Helicopter Flight – A Taste of Vila

Seeing Port Vila from a helicopter flight allows you to admire the beauty of the harbour and coral reefs. See if you can spot your hotel or resort. Have a peak at the houses of the people that call this paradise home. Wonder at how many different colours of blue the sea can be and admire the yachts moored in the harbour.

Timing and inclusions

The helicopter flight lasts approximately 7 minutes and starts and finishes right on the seafront from our floating pontoon. Our glass-bottom boat will transfer you from the shore to the pontoon. Each passenger has a headset for communication and your pilot will give you a commentary throughout the flight.
