We were extremely lucky to be placed in the front with the pilot, giving up views across the pilot, the whole front and to our side. The day was very calm and clear, allowing us a smooth and enjoyable flight with plenty of reef and ocean viewing. As a luxury holiday add-on, the front row seats were an unexpected benefit. That said, there were four people in the back of the helicopter and we feel that they would not have had quite the same experience as us in terms of comfort and views. The helicopter pilot was knowledgeable and guided us through what we were seeing however the ground staff could benefit from some customer service training in terms of helping guests feel excited for their upcoming experience and give some more energy/info beyond the standard forms and safety briefing.

Once in a lifetime experience! Couldn’t recommend this enough, we chose to add in a sand cay land and pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate my partners 30th birthday! Our pilot was amazing, making the experience even more enjoyable. Thank you for one hell of a birthday memory!

We flew out to the reef at 12.40. This gave us the morning free. We have three in our family and another couple were on board. The flight went from Cairn straight out over the reef and landed near the boat. The flight lasted 20 minutes or so. After a safety briefing we had 2 hrs to snorkel. Best fish and coral display I have ever seen. This was plenty of time. We returned to the boat and had our lunch, bbq, on the start of the return trip. Yes it costs a bit but the memories are well worth it.

What an awesome experience my wife and I had flying around the Great Barrier Reef and landing on Vlassoff sand key. Stopped for a drink and some photos and then headed off around Fitzroy Island. Well worth the money. Our pilot Makita was so informative and couldn’t fault the flight in any way. GBR catered for our own personal flight. Thanks to John for organising the trip. Would recommend this in a heart beat. 👌

Can't say enough positive things about the GBR Heli experience, from the booking process to the in office meet and greet through to Pilot Reece's expertise and professionalism. Definitely recommend it in the highest terms, will look to do another flight when in FNQ next time.
