One word PERFECTION. Celebrating our 72nd birthdays, we looked at the rest, and went with the best. From the moment we were picked up, excellence was experience. A huge thankyou to Sebastian, our amazing Helicopter pilot.

What a horrible waste of money! We did the ‘exclusive’ heart reef swim. The pilot, where do I begin, what an absolute condescending arrogant person. So, the people from qualia demanded they be seated in the front, so, of course the pilot agreed, us peasants were expected to choose one person from each couple to sit in the front on return, yet, the couple from qualia got to see everything from the front! Then, the front couple were screaming through the mich, oh wow look at the whales, the pilot only let the front people see them, didn’t bother banking the chopper so, the mere peasants in the back could see them. Then, once we landed on the reef pontoon, we were told the water was a warm 24’, what an absolute lie, I actually went into shock (as I found out once we landed and I went to the medical centre), as I stated I hadn’t breast fed all weekend and I couldn’t go into cold water, I asked for a wetsuit, they laughed at me, and told me not to be a ‘wuss’ and hop in, might I add the ‘professional’ helicopter pilot, went snorkeling as well…🤔 it was meant to be a super special experience, we were celebrating our 16th anniversary and a weekend away from the children as it was my mother’s 20th death anniversary, so, needless to say, I really wanted this to be a memorial experience, yet, we were left feeling very underwhelmed and ripped off. Get a personal pilot (local) and spend your money there, not with these arrogant pilots that clearly don’t need tourists money, as they don’t care about their conduct. Only positive was we got to sunbake next to a chopper. HOWEVER, be careful not to get pronged by the huge spikes on the helipad…

Our seaplane trip to Heart Reef was incredibly. Our pilot and assistant (Callan and Luke) were fantastic. They made the flying experience fun and relaxing. We were first reluctant due to the cost but it was well worth it. The seaplane experience is worth it alone. The flight over the islands and the coral reefs was amazing. This is a must do experience.

OMG, I have no words to describe what an amazing Best of both worlds tour we had. Our helicopter pilot Davide was just awesome, so friendly, knowledgeable & went above & beyond to make sure we had a fantastic time. We seen whales, turtles, sharks & stingrays from the air. Snorkelled at Reef World & hand feed the fish. Swam at Whitehaven beach. Weather was on point! It is an experience my husband & I will never forget. Thank you so much Davide & Hamilton Air
