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.

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
