Your airplane flight departs from Cairns Airport and gives you the kind of appreciation of the reef that you can only get from the air.

Make sure your camera is fully charged as you soar over Green Island, Arlington, Oyster, Hastings and Michaelmas reefs – the views are amazing!

Guaranteed you have the best possible photo opportunities as everyone will have a window seat.

In-Flight Commentary from The Pilot

Your friendly and experienced pilot will provide the in-flight commentary, letting you know which reefs you are currently passing over and pointing out the amazing marine life such as dolphins, sharks, rays, sea turtles and whales.

Professional commentary and local knowledge are sure to make your Cairns and Great Barrier Reef scenic flight experience even more enjoyable.

Green Island Tour on The Great Barrier Reef

After your scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef and complimentary bus transfer, you will find yourself at the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal, ready to depart on a full day adventure cruise to Green Island.

Your transfer vessel is a fast and modern “Reef Rocket” catamaran which takes you to the island within 45 minutes.

Once on Green Island, you can choose between snorkelling and a glass bottom boat tour or add a semi-submarine tour for a little extra.
