That was one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced! Our pilot was fantastic, with great commentary....we flew out to Green Island and around the coral cays....we saw turtles, dolphins and mantra rays swimming along and the pilot zoomed around to get a better look...GBR has a special on at the moment so if your looking for a one in a lifetime experience at a good price try this!

Great way to see the barrier reef and Cairns. Views of the coastline and Green Island were great. Pilot told us lots of information about the are and the reef. Flying above the reef you can see how clear the water is surrounding the coral. Could even see people diving and snorkelling. Great way to get over view of wonderful area.

Our take off for Norman Reef was supposed to take off at 12:30 but did not take off until 12:50. We had been offered a houce of seats before helicopter arrival but at the last minute engineer turned up with Ox of tools took best seat up front anc basically from then on it was his flight !! We were left holding on reef landing platform for about 20 minutes as no boat available to shuttle us to to main platform leaving us very little time there before returning by boat. Poor customer service no apology nothing.

Day 3 of our holiday and we have really got the sense that tour operators in Cairns generally are unenthused when it comes to tourists. GBR are much the same in particular the pilot. He was rushed and there wasnt really a 'tour' component to the flight.

In saying this nothing can beat the views flying over to Green Island - except flying over Green Island with a decent pilot without arrogance.
