Breathtaking views of the reef

The scenic flight was a very great experience. Breathtaking views of the Whitsundays and great barrier Reef. We had our pick up organised from Airlie beach. Each seat was a window seat and the pilot ensured the heart reef was shown to both sides. Excellent trip and would definitely recommend.

Absolutely loved this. It was truly amazing to see the Whitsundays from air, this close. Commentary was just right, letting us know where to look, history, when to take our photos and then time for us just to absorb this amazing scenery. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful experience

The experience was wonderful with beautiful scenery. Only thing that can be improved was, it flew over the heart reef too fast. Since the flight was to see heart reef, I wish it had hovered over it a bit more, enough to capture couple of photos.

Seeing the Great Barrier Reef from above was amazing! The pilot was friendly and efficient. Would recommend to any one. I was a bit surprised though that passengers weren’t asked to keep their masks on during the flight.
