Great experience, the best way to appreciate the vastness of the reef and the beauty of the Whitsundays. I was a bit nervous because the plane is small and the weather was quite dynamic but the flight was really enjoyable even with some bumps. The pilot was very kind, made us feel welcome and gave a nice commentary. Everything was very well organised. Definitely worth it!

Well worth the money the flight over the reef gives you a whole new perspective. A very professionally run experience with great staff. If you could only afford one big ticket item on your visit to the Whitsundays this is the one that I would do.

One of our favourite tours ever! Best views of Great Barrier Reef, including the Heart Reef, and also of the Whitsunday Islands. The tour was everything we had hoped for and a great value for the price, truly. You will NOT regret the investment!!

Definitely a must do at Airlie Beach! Whitehaven Beach was spectacular. Heart Reef was overrated but the trip was good.

Amazing trip. We did an hour over the whitsunday islands and Great Barrier Reef. Seeing Whitehaven beach and hill inlet from the air is absolutely spectacular. It is also amazing to see the Great Barrier Reef from the air. Amazing tour, well worth doing! Would highly recommend. Plane ride was smooth and comfortable. Pilot was great.

I booked the scenic flight for my first day in Airlie Beach. However, my flight to Prosperine was delayed and I arrived in Airlie Beach one day later. I informed the tour organizer right away and they simply rescheduled me to another day at no extra charge. I was extremely grateful.
The experience itself was great! I could sit next to the pilot and took some stunning pictures. : I especially enjoyed the flight over the three reefs. I'd recommend the scenic flight to everyone!
