There are plenty of ways to get around the Auckland region, but travelling by helicopter is easily one of the most exciting. And now, thanks to Heletranz Helicopters, not only can you take on adventurous hobbies like heli-fishing and heli-surfing, you'll get to picnic on a private beach or even stop off at the pub.

For those big on adventurous spirit but small on time, Heletranz' latest offering is the Tailored For You Great Barrier Island Experience — a five-hour experience that could see you enjoying some of the best fishing or surfing spots New Zealand has to offer.

Heading out from the heliport in Albany, you'll get a spectacular view of the region's stunning scenery — with eagle-eyes likely to spot dolphins, whales and stingrays in the water below.

When it comes to heli-fishing, Heletranz are the OGs, and will kit you out with all the right gear and transport you to the choicest fishing spots in the Hauraki Gulf, surrounding islands and sub-tidal reefs of the North East Coastline and Great Barrier — rich and diverse marine habitats that boast great fishing such as snapper, kahawai and kingfish. 

If you'd rather be in the water than on it, Heletranz will transport those after access to epic waves in out-of-the-way surf spots to a secluded beach on the Barrier's east coast.

A gourmet picnic lunch on a private beach is provided with either option. And if you want to top off your day with a trip to one of Auckland's top country pubs, for an additional fee you can stop off at the Sawmill Brewery in Leigh for a bite and a choice of 15 tap beers.

Heletranz' Tailored For You Great Barrier Island Experience starts from $1095 per person based on five people travelling together. For more information head to heletranz.co.nz.
