Absolute must do! Staff were brilliant from start to finish (shout out to Jenni and Liam) and the flight itself was awesome. Bucket list item for sure!

This experience is something you should do. We are so lucky to be able to do this in our own backyard.

This was a last minute decision and I am so pleased I decided to do it. The staff were great and the flight was amazing. Seeing the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef from the air was unbelievable - seeing nature at it's best. And my photos turned out well so I can relive it over and over.

This was the greatest value and most memorable experience . Our pilot Liam was friendly, knowledgeable , accomodating and what a landing didn’t even feel it We had clear skies and the heart reef was sensational

Definitely a highlight and a must! Jenni was an amazing guide, very entertaining, down to earth and went above and beyond to help us out. Liam was a great pilot, very knowledgeable and welcoming, all round incredible. Thanks guys!

Must say being in a little 6 seater plane in windy conditions was not ideal and I would not have lasted another 5 minutes in the air. Overall though glad we done it great way to see the reef and islands and the pilot was excellent. We done it the day of our wedding anniversary and both enjoyed the experience. Would I do it again, NO, Would I recommend it YES

bella98x September 2021

Incredible view, once in a lifetime experience and the pilot was very good and took us close to the Heart Reef and made a round trip so people on both sides could see it. Highly recommend, one of my biggest dreams has come true!
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
