Great flight!

Our captain was adorable, knowledgable, and had a sense of humor. It was worth every dime. My sister and I got lots of beautiful video, and then snorkled the reef the next day. DO IT!

A Must Do Adventure

We enjoyed incredible views of the Great Barrier Reef from the air. Even though the offer is 30 minutes, we experienced 45 minutes from wheels up to touchdown. Way better experience than a helicopter. We covered way more sites such as Green Island, Upolu Cay, Oyster Reef, Arlington Reef, Vlassof Reef and Michaelmas Reef!. We also flew over Cape Grafton, False Cape, Double Island and Palm Cove and other Northern Beaches. Everyone had a window seat, which doesn't happen on a helicopter. A must do adventure!

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.
