Did this last week as part of a holiday package in Port Douglas. Transferred to and from the Sheraton Mirage by car. Lovely half hour flight out over Low Isles, Batt Reef etc, saw rays, sharks and amazing colours of coral, blue, green, red and white plus the unbelievable changing colours of the ocean itself. Lucky enough to see air-sea... More

These guys are great. Really great. We booked an hour rainforest/reef ride and lucked out with perfect weather. Our pilot, Andy, was informative and friendly, and took us out over the rainforest and Mossman Gorge first, then over to the reef. It was all so beautiful. We had been picked up at our hotel, on time, and our driver was... More

What a phenomenal way to see the Great Barrier Reef, absolutely recommended to anyone. Once in a life time experience. If you can ask for the two window seats at the back of the helecopter - we'll worth it, and great to take pics and videos outside the window during your flight.

Being mid November, the wind was strengthening across the Coral Sea and we had heard in the hotel some people were experiencing sea-sickness when trying to view the Great Barrier Reef by boat, so I booked a helicopter trip to see the reef from the air. Mrs NOG was very apprehensive of taking the scenic flight however. After meeting our... More

My family & I loved our flight over the reef. We jumped on it while out with Quicksilver. One experience we will never forget. It was fantastic.

What a flight took the delux scenic flight as our only view of the reef. Worth every dollar. The views were fantastic with beautiful colours and excellent knowledge from the pilot "Andy" turning the helicopter to show us the best views. JUST DO IT :-) :-)

We took our tour from Port Douglas Marina. Pick up there to check in and board the helicopter was smooth and efficient. The ride out to Agincourt was spectacular. This was such a great opportunity to have a birds eye view of the coast and the beautiful sea colours. The flight itself was smooth and the pilot shared information about... More

This was without a doubt the highlight of my trip to the reef and Port Douglas. We cruised out to the reef and took the helicopter back. Our pilot (Grant) was both capable and informative and made sure we saw as much as we could by going back over a number of areas to ensure that those on both sides... More

A once in a life time trip flying over the barrier reef and heart reef and landing on white have beach was a day I will never ever forget. I was fortunate enough to fly for 45 mins over the Reef. The clarity of the water and the fish and the different colours was indescribable!!! I highly recommend this to... More
