Waterfront Spectacular – Helicopter

Your scenic flight takes you along the coastline, over the lagoons and reefs of Mele Bay. You will enjoy a bird’s eye view of the resorts and houses along Dream Cove and Paradise Cove. Then you will see the colours of the reef as you fly over local dive sites and cross the bay to Devil’s Point. Following the coastline we will take you past the famous Cascade waterfall and over Mele, Vanuatu’s largest Village. We head back to our floating pontoon via Hideaway Island Resort and marine sanctuary.

Time and inclusions

The flight lasts approximately 12 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.
