A fantastic experience and one that I would certainly do again. Doing the helicopter tour was the best way to see the reef!

It was really fun but I thought I would be skydiving over the Great Barrier Reef but it was over cane fields in cairns. Still worth the money though.

Great day out! Started of the day by skydiving from 14000ft, then had a sceneic half an hour helicopter flight over the Great Barrier Reef to Hastings Reef, then a few hours snorkelling around the reef!! We upgraded our jump to 14,000ft and had solo camera man to take photos and film our jump, certainly worth while paying the extra for this to have the experience filmed! Overall a good value day out and a fantastic experience!!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

A bit of a rushed day. The sky diving was great! Everyone was really friendly. The views from the helicopter were amazing, but by the time we got to the boat for the scuba diving there was little more than a hour before the boat sailed back. I also found that after the sky diving my ears would not equalise properly so the scuba diving was uncomfortable. The information about my trip was limited as each activity and hotel transfer is with a different company, but they all tried hard to get me where I needed to be. Might be better to spread the activities over two days.

Poor coordination makes this an inefficient trip. Our sky dive group was the last to arrive at the airport. It was noon before we were taken to the helicopter hanger. Again, we waited until two other couples arrived before the helicopter lifted off. It was nearly 2 p.m. when we arrived at the snorkeling cruise ship. We had less than two hours on the ship before it began the cruise back to Cairns. Rather than a buffet lunch, we were served ready made plates of leftovers. Even this was not given to us until after 3 p.m. There was approximately one hour to snorkel. There was no time to scuba dive or participate in the submarine cruise around the reef. Hurry up and wait with very little time to enjoy was the theme of the day.
