When we were visiting the Marlborough Region of New Zealand, we had the opportunity to take a family helicopter ride across the Marlborough Sounds with Coast to Coast Helicopters. One of the wonderful things about raising children in New Zealand is almost everything is family-oriented, included adventure tourism, which meant that Holden and Gray (aged 5 and 18 months) were able get a once in a lifetime bird's eye view and scenic tour of the Marlborough Sounds.
Coast to Coast is located in the hilltops surrounding the small, harbor town of Picton. We were greeted with homemade muffins, tea, and coffee by the owners themselves who run the helicopter tours out of their home. Here are some pictures and a video from our magical adventure.
