This was once in a lifetime experience. We came to Cairns specifically to see the Great Barrier Reef and there is no better way to do it than by air. We were 3 people on board with the pilot and spent 30 minutes flying over parts of the reef. We were impressed with the safety measures taken before our flight including waiting for a quick shower to pass before our departure. Roundtrip transportation from our hotel was included in the price.
