What you can expect

See the Tasman Peninsula in all its glory during this scenic helicopter flight over the region. An experienced pilot takes you soaring over famous natural and manmade sites, including the Port Arthur Historic Site, Cape Pillar, Crescent Bay, and Ship Stern Bluff.

Your journey through the sky begins after meeting your pilot and getting buckled into your seat in the helicopter. Lift off the ground and watch the world shrink below you as you ascend smoothly and begin coasting over the Tasman Peninsula, your pilot providing commentary on the way. First head south, passing over the former penal settlement of Port Arthur Historic Site to the tip of Cape Pillar. Marvel at the cape's colossal, sheer cliffs, which tower as high as 984 feet (300 m) over the water.

Fly next to Cape Raoul, catching sight of the gorgeous Crescent Bay, fascinating Remarkable Cave, and Carnavon Bay's shack community on the way. From Cape Raoul, which sits at the southernmost part of the Tasman Peninsula, look for brave surfers toughing out the southern swell in hopes of catching the enormous waves of Ship Stern Bluff. Savor the views on the picturesque flight back to your starting point.
