Cairns Helicopter Flight and a luxury Great Barrier Reef Tour. Join us for the ultimate Cairns reef trip a Fly/Fly Half Day Reef trip with a barbeque lunch. If you only ever visit the Great Barrier Reef once then this is the way to do it, see it from above the water and below the water.

Book your seats early for our half day Great Barrier Reef tour on a scenic helicopter flight departing from Cairns and meeting a luxury boat out on the Great Barrier Reef to enjoy some snorkelling, a barbeque lunch and a 25 minute return flight back to Cairns by helicopter.

This unique Great Barrier Reef tour offers 2 x 25 minute low level scenic flights over the coral gardens, islands and sand cays on the reef, and then lands on a floating helicopter pontoon with guests then being ferried over to the boat where you are offered a barbeque luncheon and given your snorkel gear to explore the coral and fish from under the water.

Your actual time on the Great Barrier Reef is limited to around 75 minutes so this is the perfect Great Barrier Reef tour for those who wish to see it from all angles in a short amount of time.

This Cairns helicopter flight and Great Barrier tour combo package deal is extremely popular.

We offer one helicopter departure per day with only 6 available seats to enjoy this unique Cairns tour, so if you are thinking of joining us you must book in advance.

Please be in contact if you have a large group of people for more details.

Half Day Great Barrier Reef Tour

If you are arriving in Cairns or Yorkey’s Knob on a cruise ship tour then this very well may be the prefect Great Barrier Reef tour for you to book and see it all in the time frame of your cruise ships arrival and departure.

Once you are weighed and outfitted with all of your flight gear it’s time to clamber aboard our luxury helicopter and begin your 25 minute scenic flight across the Great Barrier Reef.

Our helicopter pilots will give you a running commentary of all the sights you will see around about 500 feet or so below the helicopter and out the glass windows.

Once you land on the floating pontoon a boat will transfer you to the luxury boat sitting on the reef and you will be offered a barbeque luncheon and also give the choice to do some snorkeling.

Total time out on the Great Barrier Reef is around 75 minutes so if it is snorkeling you wish to do it may be best to eat a nice meal before your helicopter flight and just spend all your time in the water before you next 25 minute helicopter return flight to Cairns.

You may also like to book a seat on the semi-submersible submarine tour whilst you are out on the reef.

This fly/fly helicopter and combination Great Barrier Reef tour is the perfect option for non-swimmers as you get to enjoy every aspect of the reef just like everyone else.
