What You Can Expect

Cairns Sky Dive, Great Barrier Reef Helicopter Tour and Cruise

Cairns Sky Dive, Great Barrier Reef Helicopter Tour and Cruise

Your day starts with morning pickup at your Cairns hotel and transfer to the skydive headquarters.

Meet your professional skydiving instructor and receive a safety briefing, all necessary gear and a skydiving lesson from your guide. When you're ready, board your skydive plane and enjoy views over the Cairns landscape as your plane ascends to the jump height of 11,000 feet (3048 meters). Your instructor jumps in tandem with you, and you free fall for about 30 seconds before your instructor releases the parachute. Drift back down to earth, taking in sweeping views of Cairns and the Coral Sea, including the Great Barrier Reef.

After your exhilarating jump, you are transferred to the heliport for a 25-minute helicopter flight over the Great Barrier Reef. Your helicopter pilot points out the many visible features of this vast ecosystem that can even be seen from the space station.

Your pilot touches down gently at a pontoon located on North Hastings Reef. Switch from the helicopter to a deluxe boat for the afternoon. Enjoy approximately two hours to snorkel and swim around in the Great Barrier Reef, observing an array of coral formations and colorful schools of fish. Snorkeling equipment is provided and instructors are there to assist as needed.

Scuba diving is also available for both beginners and experienced divers (own expense).

The boat crew serves up a buffet lunch on the boat and later offers a complimentary glass of wine for the return cruise to Cairns. Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel after a fun-filled day out.
