This 30 minute helicopter flight departs Cairns General Avaiation airport and tacks out from the mainland with views of Cairns and Trinity Inlet, passing False Cape where you can see the remnants of WW11 defences still in place, Mt Yarrabah, Mission Bay and Cape Grafton.

From there we strike out to the inner edge of the Great Barrier Reef and Green Island, a 6,000 year-old coral sand island that boats its own native rainforest eco-system.

Tracking to the north, we explore the western side of Arlington Reef, home to a diverse range of marine creatures - turtles, sharks and sting rays. 

Continuing north we'll circle Vlasoff Cay a tiny sand island in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef that reduces to onle a few hundred square metres in size at high tide.

When booking ask to have the helicopter land here so you can get your feet wet and sandy and capture some amazing photographs of you on the sand cay beside the helicopter.

From Vlasoff Cay we head west, over Upolu Cay and back to Cairns taking in fantastic views of the Far North Queensland coastline framed by the lush rainforest-covered eastern slopes of the Great Dividing Range behind Cairns city.
