It was a fantastic flight with small group. Departed from Shute Harbour (small) Airport.
So in a minute, we were already over the ocean. The pilot was friendly, very informative and spoke very clearly(so good for non English speakers, too). The flight was smooth, plenty of site of Whitehaven Beach and Heart reef. It was a wonderful experience. I think it's a must when you visit this area. You can't afford to miss out.
I did this flight with very lucky sunny day.
Thank you, Air Australia. You made my day!!

Best way to see the Reef and Whitehaven Beach is to get an aerial perspective - stunning views and smooth flight.

We had Whitsundays Scenic Flight and Whitehaven Beach Tour earlier via OceanRafting. It was a blast. First we got picked by and had the scenic flight, then did the Whitehaven Tour. My eyes is feasting to see those gorgeous islands. You get a better picture when you are in the plane. Izaak was our pilot. Nathan had a really good sense of homour. We also enjoyed being guided my Mary and Erika. They all ensured we all had fun during this trip. I’ll surely recommend it and be back.

This is my 2nd time with these guys. Having said that, i had a really good experience during my first time. However, when we were on top of Whitehaven Beach it was raining. So i said if i do comeback in Whitsundays, i will do this tour again. I wasn't disappointed. Both locations heart reef and Whitehaven was just stunning to see on a nice sunny day. Staff were really good, friendly and professional thanks Chris. I would highly recommend to book your scenic tour with these guys!! Excellent. See you again next for the 3rd time? We'll see. Haha.

I took this flight with my 6 year old daughter and we were picked up from our accommodation and dropped back to town which was super helpful. The flight was an amazing experience and the islands and reef seen this way is just an extraordinary feeling of wonder at the beautiful world we live in. The professional approach our pilot demonstrated was also beyond expectations. I highly recommend this experience as a great way to get a superb view of this UNESCO World Heritage site.

So glad we did this … absolutely amazing to see the reef and Whitsundays from above - a fantastic experience. The crew were great. I’m not the best flyer but felt in safe hands.
