Spectacular flight over the Reef with our family from the Reef pontoon. Something we highly recommend, we did the 10 minute flight over the famous Heart Reef. Just long enough for the kids with wonderful memories made.

What sounded like a great value tour ended as a most memorable experience. Door to door service, and a super flight in a beautifully restored 1964 De Havilland seaplane. A sea landing at Whitehaven Beach, one of Australia's best. A beach blanket, umbrella and chilled...More

When you book the Whitehaven beach getaway, it's $330 per person with a minimum of 2 people. They might try to book maximum 2 other guests. Or you might want to pay $660 just for your self.

We had two so I can't say for sure. They may book in with another solo traveller if you ask
