Are the prices per person or per aircraft?
Volcanic Air offer two products. Tours sold on a per person basis and charters are sold on exclusive aircraft. This is clearly stated on our website under each tour description.
What do I need to bring and what should I wear?
This depends entirely on what tour is chosen. If no landing or guided tour is chosen then no specific requirements are needed. For excursions where you are landing and/or undertaking a guided tour such as White Island or Mount Tarawera, comfortable walking shoes and clothes appropriate to the conditions on the day. It is always a good idea to bring a light jacket, water, sunscreen and of course your camera!
