"This was really the highlight of our trip in Australia so far. The scenic flight in the morning was mind-blowing and definitely worth money seeing the reef from above - the best scenery in my life! Travelling with my non-English-speaking parents was not easy, however, the crew were so friendly and super patient to guide my parents in the water and snorkelled with them! Really good fun and good lunch as well. Highly recommended to people like us that can only spend one full day in Airlie."
