About
Feel the exhilaration of flying over the ancient World Heritage-listed rainforest canopy and watching as the lush green tones change to the vibrant blues and greens of the Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef.Seeing the dramatic beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is an extraordinary experience - flying over it is simply awe-inspiring.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We travelled out to Agincourt Reef on the boat and made the best decision ever to splurge for our family on the flight back to Port Douglas. The perspective of the reef is incredible and completely missed on the boat out. It also let our boys see first hand where the rainforest meets the reef. They thought being able to see the line where the freshwater meets the saltwater was cool and the pilot giving them a bit of a tight rollercoaster turn was particularly awesome 👌. Great infomative pilot commentary, unbelievable perspective- an experience the family will always remember.

We had the best experience with our trip with GBR helicopters
Our tour over the reef was outstanding and our pilot was incredible
He gave us so much information but let us have enough quiet time just to enjoy the experience
Highly recommend as it’s a once in a lifetime trip

There were two groups on our trip. The company seated the whole of one group in the front seats and our group entirely in the back. The trip was driven to suit the front passengers leaving those behind the pilot with little view and therefore motion sickness. I would also recommend self driving to the airfield as we had a near accident whilst the shuttle driver was on a mobile phone. Otherwise a great way to see the rainforest and the reef!

Organised the helicopter tour from Sheraton Grand Mirage. Excellent smooth ride in helicopter with a great pilot (Nick)amd we were able to take some awesome photos. Nick gave us an excellent view of the Daintree with some exciting maneuvers in and around the hills and waterfalls. I was able to take some great footage on both the phone and Gopro from the front seat. Spotted a crocodile in the river and several turtles in the reef. Was a great way to experience both these areas before taking part in day tours.

A once in a lifetime trip. The views over the rainforest (drought aside) are fantastic but just the warm up act for a birds eye view over the GBR. The helicopter is quiet and the pilot pointed out points of interest as we flew low over the reef.
So glad we did this

We took a 30 min flight to see the reef. It was fantastic and I deeply recommend to take this trip. The view is amazing, the helicopter flies very softly, the pilot was very polite. I have never spent that much money for anything comparable- but it was so much worth it! Thank you for this super special experience! (Btw we had kids aged 4 and 5 with us and they liked it as well)

What an amazing experience we had with GBR helicopters today. Our pilot John was fantastic and we had a truly awesome flight with the most spectacular conditions. We were really fortunate and saw lots of turtles and also a school of sharks during our flight. We highly recommend this. It was definitely a tick off our bucket list!

We had a great time seeing port Douglas from up high it’s definitely worth doing for a bucket list item, it is a bit pricey but also a once in a lifetime experience

A must do if you want to see the world heritage sites from above. GBR handled our booking just fine, pick up included & were sweet enough to bring by the sunglasses we left in the heli. Our pilot talked us through all we saw and we loved it.
