Salt Air is Barging it’s way into Heli Cruise Island Escapes

Source : Salt Air Press Release

An innovative new tourism product for the Bay of Islands has just been launched by Salt Air which includes a barge, a helicopter, a boat and stunning island beaches. Salt Air have purpose built a floating heli pad barge that will be anchored out amongst the islands from Paihia. Visitors to the Bay of Islands can opt to helicopter out to the barge, then get dropped off by boat to an island of their choice to enjoy snorkelling, fishing, swimming and island walks at their leisure. They then return to Paihia via the Salt Air boat. Alternatively, they can take the boat to the islands and then helicopter back from the barge. Grant Harnish, CEO of Salt Air is excited about the opportunities the new barge will provide for both visitors and for Salt Air to work in with other tourism operators to provide a combination of heli flights and cruising in the Bay of Islands. “We designed this product with flexibility in mind so that a variety of vessels can drop off their passengers on our barge for a helicopter flight, opening the door for some exciting tours and packages across the Bay of Islands”. Companies such as Fullers Great Sights will work in with Salt Air using their vessels the Excitor 3 and Ipipiri to meet with the barge for helicopter flights. The Heli Cruise Island Escapes are now available to book for the 2010/2011 season onwards.
