White Island is an active volcano in the middle of the sea. Located 52 kilometres off the Bay of Plenty coastline, White Island is a link in a chain of volcanoes called the Pacific Ring of Fire. Fly over the rugged, unspoilt coastline of this volcanic island, viewing moon-like surfaces, steaming craters, flocks of sea birds and sulphur-yellow landscapes. You will see the remains of the old sulphur works, destroyed by a White Island eruption.
During the flight, keep your eyes peeled for sea life such as schools of fish and dolphins.
This is a flight only and does not include the crater landing and tour.
