At Apollo Bay Aviation we pride ourselves on offering an UNMATCHED experience and one that will leave you awestruck. Your host, Vic Bongiorno (company owner, chief pilot and long time resident of Apollo Bay) and his staff at Apollo Bay Aviation would like to invite you to fly with us and experience a once in a lifetime flight. From your seat in our Robinson R44 Helicopter or Cessna aeroplanes (the scenic aircraft of choice) you get to take full advantage of each aircraft’s UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS and the best possible photo opportunities of this marvellous coast line. Our flight offerings include short flights around Apollo Bay, to flights to the 12 Apostles and Bay of Islands, or even across Bass Strait to King Island or the wilderness of Tasmania. Take the very popular 45 minute 12 Apostles tour and SEE this isolated coastline in its entirety, where for the most parts it is inaccessible by road. LISTEN to our expert commentary provided by your pilot and LEARN all about the history and features of the Shipwreck Coast. We will pass Cape Otway Lighthouse, Dinosaur Cove & Moonlight Head on our way to the Apostles, and then you can take in the fantastic sights of the magnificent limestone cliffs and rock structures, Loch Ard Gorge and the Blow Hole. Extend the tour to 60 minutes and we will also show you Port Campbell, The Arch, London Bridge and the beautiful Bay of Islands on top of the already great sights of the 12 Apostles tour. Due to the popularity of our flights and to get you in the air as quick as possible, bookings are highly recommended. Check out our website or call us for current flight prices, terms and conditions, availability and bookings.
