"This is clearly the most exciting activity to do in Airlie beach. Seeing the great barrier reef from above is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my entire life! I still cant believe what I saw there. The staff is very kind and I felt super secure during the entire flight! Can’t recommend enough this activity!!!"
Catherine Arcand
"A must do! I did the scenic flight after doing a boat trip the previous day. You cannot come to the great barrier reef without doing a flight over it, seeing its vastness and beautiful colours is something that will stay with me forever! Dont just swim at the reef do a flight, well worth spending a little extra $$"
Sam Mc
"This time, the pilot brad skill is very good, smooth and comfortable, and the commentary on the way is very detailed, polite and polite, is a very pleasant flight. Every employee in this company is nice and smiling, and it make our mood so much easier……highly recommend this company and this handsome pilot! "
Claire Kuang
"Excellent well thought out route with good commentary to where and what the reefs are called. Excellent pilot with the heart reef left and right side of aircraft."
Roy Harris
"We have been to Airlie many times but never seen Heart Reef! I am glad we booked the one-hour Reef and Island Scenic flight as it didn't disappoint! The weather was perfect and we even lucky to see several whales as an added bonus. Seeing Heart Reef and Whitehaven from the plane was well worth the money spent!"
"Just wow. 1 hour flight over the Whitsundays and Heart reef was stunning. Very happy we chose to do this! I was a little worried about the price but it was worth every penny and will not hesitate to recommend to anyone I meet on my Australia journey."
Melanie Collingwood
"This was one of the most beautiful and special experiences of my life! Despite the cloud cover, we still were able to get amazing views of the Whitsundays, Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and the Outer Great Barrier Reef. I got some amazing pictures to show to my family and friends and also memories to last a lifetime. I would recommend this tour to everyone wanting to have a special experience in the Whitsundays!!"
