There is no better way to see the majesty of the Great Barrier Reef than in the seat of a low level flying helicopter, seaplane or fixed wing aircraft with the pilot giving commentary on your scenic flight. The landing and take off on a seaplane is a unique experience as is visiting Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach this way. A scenic flight on a fixed wing aircraft allows you to fly further and see more at an economical price whereas, a helicopter is more manouverable and can land on remote sandy coral cays, pontoons, reefs, islands and beaches. The best places for scenic flights are Cairns, Port Douglas, Townsville, Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island.
