What an incredible way to see such a beautiful part of Australia! We had a great time on this tour and felt very safe the whole time. Definitely the best way to see Whitehaven Beach, highly recommend!

Stacey_W May 2021

It was the most incredible experience at a very good price. Highly recommend! The weather was perfect and the beaches are second to none.

Had an amazing experience on our heli tour ..my partner had never been in a helicopter before and she was blown away The views and the course the pilot took ( sweeping turns to beach and close up of a waterfall) made a good day one to remember forever Extremely happy and would love to do it all again someday Dave and kerrie

Wow! What an awesome experience! Garry arrived right on time to take us to the Airport. A nice 30 minute drive with loads of information about the area and things to do. This was surprise for my husband on our 41st Wedding Anniversary and surprised he was. Cam our pilot was great, and the views were amazing. Day was slightly overcast but didn’t disappoint. The water was so blue and we had a good view of stingrays and a few turtles as we helicoptered above Whitehaven beach. Landing on the beach was perfect, Cam set us up in a sheltered spot with an umbrella and picnic rug. We brought along our own beach shelter too which made a huge difference. We had a lovely platter and bottle a wine and music from our boom box. After a little snack we went for a swim, water was warm and so clear. A good hour and a half of total relaxation! Couldn't have asked for a better day! Flight home was just as awesome taking in views on a different route. Jen our tour bus driver was very entertaining on the trip home giving more tips on places to go and a good laugh on her Corning jokes!

I want to start off by saying our driver, Dylan at GSL Airlie was wonderful. He was so genuine and really cared about us. The weather wasn’t great and we were both worried the pilot may need to cancel but luckily it went ahead. This is totally worth the money. Helicopter to Whitehaven is the best way to see it all, full views and I feel like you just wouldn’t get that with the planes. This experience was unforgettable and our pilot even gave us some extra time at the beach as they were having to drop someone at another island during our time at the beach. Overall the experience was well worth the money and I highly recommend.

Was amazing, pilot Cam was awesome good flight. Had a large bunch of Whitehaven beach to ourselves. Platter was nice. And more importantly she said Yes!

Kristen_A March 2021

Amazing experience! The trip was certainly ticked off the bucket list. Viator was wonderful to deal with from start to finish. Would recommend to anyone.

jhnoo February 2021

If I could add more stars I would.. 5 stars is not enough to describe our private helicopter tour to Whitehaven beach Chris was our pilot and he was amazing with knowledge, skills, he really made our flight fun, comfortable The private charter was 3hrs and the price was spot on.. It was the best.. AMAZING Already planning our next trip

Ssuchard December 2020

The crew at GSL is phenomenal. From the office staff to Pilot Tristan. Coming from Hamilton Island, the crew were very mindful of the fact I needed to catch a ferry back and made sure I was on it. I highly recommend and I will be doing this tour again.

Lachlan C December 2020

10/10 day with our Pilot Tristan. Bucket list life tick here. Couldn't have been more perfect. Amazing customer service, tour commentary and flying. If you haven't done this tour you haven't lived.

raymond_h December 2020

To see the reef close up it's a bucket list item everyone should do. The whole experience was mind blowing and a fantastic pilot.

Y9025HYpaulw November 2020

The complete package. EVERYTHING. One of the best things you'll ever do. Just do it. From booking , to the pilot Tristan a great young fella. As big Arney said " JUST DO IT "

Fbgrays September 2020

A most amazing, special experience with spectacular views. Tristan entertained us with his knowledge and choppered us in for a smooth landing to Whitehaven Beach for 1.5 hours. Once back, Kevin was kind enough to drop us back to our accommodation. The whole experience from booking in to getting back home was effortless. Thank you to the team at GSL for helping us create lifelong memories. We highly recommend this experience.

Nzkrishke August 2020

A very fun experience. Great commentary provided during the flight. Pilot was really nice pleasant and informative. Whitehaven is exactly as described a tropical paradise. The flight was a highlight of our trip to Airlie.

colinm250 July 2020

Flew around Whitehaven beach a few years ago and always vowed to come back and land on it. Time didn't permit a boat trip so went via helicopter. Cost a bit but well worth it. Great pilot Chris who left us on beach and some magnificent photos taken. All in all fantastic.

AngRoff69 July 2020

We were super lucky to have amazing weather. The views were postcard perfect and better than we imagined. Such an exciting way to view the Whitsundays. Bucket list stuff.

Laurakranyak December 2019

Whitehaven beach is honestly something else, the most stunning views, white sands and clear sea and the odd sting ray went by. The staff and the pilot are lovely and friendly. Once we had landed we went off to do our own thing and had long enough to walk for a bit, take pictures and have a swim before heading back on the helicopter. Helicopter flight isn’t too long.

W7529RSmarieb December 2019

We just came back from the 2hour heli tour and we simply loved it. Everything ran smoothly and the team was very nice. We can only recommend to get up early and take the flight at 8am, as we just did. We had the whole beach to ourselves and enjoyed the cool water and the great views during the flight. Thanks again to the team for this great experience!

Nittya M October 2019

We had an awesome time. The views were breathtaking. I would recommend everyone to visit this place.

Christopher_M September 2019

Absolutely amazing, such a beautiful part of the world. Our pilot Dave was very friendly and accommodating, so too were the transfer drivers. The ride itself is so smooth, wasn’t expecting that! And the views are simply beautiful. Definitely worth every penny getting the helicopter, views just can’t be beaten.

trvljnky01 September 2019

We took the helicopter from Proserpine airport and flew to Whitehaven Beach. The bus staff were nice, and the office staff were friendly too. Our pilot Dave looked after us and made us feel very comfortable (I am very scared of heights and was very nervous before the trip) The views of the islands were simply amazing and we got very lucky with the weather while we were on Whitehaven Beach. I can certainly recommend this tour to anyone visiting this area. Great value and great service. Thanks Dave for an incredible memory!

StanWeston September 2019

What an amazing part of the world, and seeing if from the air was only the beginning! Being able to spend some quality time with my wife relaxing on the beach just topped it off. We would highly recommend this tour and hope to fly with Dave again on our next trip to Airlie Beach.

shoalhavenstreet August 2019

A perfect way to see Whitehaven beach. You get the amazing views from the helicopter - including of Hill Inlet - and you land on a secluded part of the beach. We had considered a boat trip there from Airlie Beach but that takes most of the day and we didn't need another day on a boat. The pilot, Dave, made us feel very welcome and comfortable during the flight. We were really glad we chose this heli tour instead of a boat cruise.
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
