Scenic Flights from Cairns, the Gateway to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef at an awesome great value price. Every passenger has a window seat to see the brilliant lace like coral reef formations below on your Cairns scenic flight.

Our Great Barrier Reef 60 minute scenic flight from Cairns will have us heading north to view the best parts on the outer Great Barrier Reef that no other scenic flights see such as this one, nor at such an affordable price.

Sit back, relax and take in the beautiful views as our pilot takes you on a magical low level one hour scenic flight of the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.

Your pilot will converse with you along the way and you will fly out over towards Green Island, then head north along the Great Barrier Reef up towards Port Douglas.

As we know the Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the World, and the amazing contrast of colours is something that’s best experienced from the air on a scenic flight.

 After becoming airborne you’ll immediately begin to enjoy seeing all the local Cairns reefs on this magnificent world re-known coral reef as they are all so close to Cairns thus the tagline “Cairns is the Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef”.

We then head north to Port Douglas, do a few circuits and then make our way south back towards Cairns along the mainland coastline.

As you sit in your window seats you will be flying quite low so we may see some of the marine life and on water activity down below us. Whilst flying along the reef your pilot will point out all the Great Barrier Reef islands, sand cays and coral reefs and advising you of their names and other bits of information about them.

Sights you shall see will include Cairns, Green Island, Arlington Reef, Middle Cay, Michaelmas Cay, Upolu Reef, Batt Reef, Tongue Reef, Port Douglas, Double Island and Palm Cove

This is the perfect Great Barrier Reef tour sightseing option for cruise ship passengers berthing in Yorkeys Knob or Cairns.
