I booked Pete for a surprise birthday flight for my husband and what an amazing experience it was. Pete picked us up from Couran Cove and showed us all the beautiful sights the Gold Coast has to offer. Something we will both remember for ever. Thanks so much Pete for making it such a special day.

Absolutely awesome day. Beautiful location, sensational seafood and champagne topped off by a fun and even funnier host in Pete. The flight was so fantastic, we saw a whale and her baby breaching so close and totally enjoyed the whole experience. For a special occasion get on and book it!!!!

Best way ever to go whale watching - see them from 1000 ft above without the hassle of spending all day on a boat in possibly choppy conditions. And the bonus is you get to see the Gold Coast and hinterland as well. Gives you a... More
