Combo Deal $$$ Saver
  • Spot marine life on the Great Barrier reef from the helicopter, especially whales during the months of July - August    
  • Get up close and friendly with the Giant Maori Wrasse fish, Wally – he is simply huge and not shy at all

For many people, the Great Barrier Reef is their ultimate holiday destination, often a once in a lifetime experience. Why not make your Great Barrier Reef trip that extra bit special by adding a scenic helicopter flight over the Outer Barrier Reef.

Save big $$$ with this one-day Great Barrier Reef and Scenic Helicopter Flight package deal. You'll enjoy a 90-minute leisurely cruise from Cairns to an outer reef activity platform where you can take a semi-submarine tour, snorkel, enjoy the views from the underwater observatory and fly like an eagle above the Great Barrier Reef in a helicopter while trying to spot dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays and seasonally migrating whales.

Enjoy the Fun Activities on the Platform

You can snorkel like a fish on the outer Barrier Reef, or if you prefer to stay dry then hop into semi-submarine and take a 30-minute cruise amongst Giant Trevallies, sharks, sea turtles and the best coral imaginable. You could also spend time in the underwater observatory, watching the passing marine life and divers entering into the water. There is even enough time to go for a quick dive or cruise on the sea floor with Scuba-Doo scooters! The crew will let you know when it is your turn to take on the skies by helicopter – just don’t forget to grab your camera!

Buffet to Feed the Hungry

With so many activities packed in your day, it is a no surprise that your belly will be screaming from hunger but not to worry – you can indulge from a generous buffet selection as little or as much as you would like. Common choices are potato bake, vegetarian curry, pasta, potato and garden salad, cold meat cuts, chicken drumsticks, juicy prawns, bread rolls and fruit selection.

Back to the Shores of Cairns

Now that you have experienced the best that the Great Barrier Reef has on offer it's time to cruise home and go through the hundreds (if not thousands) of photos you have been taking during your day. Chill out on the sundeck or enjoy the coolness of the air-conditioned cabin while snacking on cheese, crackers and some optional alcoholic beverages. Surely your best day in Tropical North Queensland!
