Was spectacular from start to finish. The pilot was very knowledgeable of the area and both he and the crew had a good sense of humour whilst being very professional.

Great experience. Well worth the early wake up. Unexpected rain while we were up in the air but Bob made it a fun experience. Tony our pick up driver was also awesome. Bubbles after the ride was perfect.

Always wanted to do this, and on a recent trip to Palm Cove to celebrate our 40th anniversary, we finally did. It was even better than we hoped. The team, Hitoshi, Bob and Brian were fabulous. Great camaraderie, made for a fun and beautiful experience. Felt safe the whole time. We'd love to do it again! Thanks guys, and thanks for the photos!!

My wife and I had an experience we will never forget. The experience of flying through the air without any engines was fantastic, no steering just floating with the wind. Thanks to our Pilot Josh he was great and along with his crew Doug and Hitoshi they made our 40th anniversary something we will always remember. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting that little extra experience.
