I enjoyed the flight, waiting around on the ground was a waste of time both in the small hanger and in the aircraft. We sat on the ground with the engine going for nearly half an hour before we took off, it was noisy, after the first 5 minutes very boring and did not seem to be particularly well-organised. No explanation was given to us by anybody on the ground as to why we were having to wait around for so long.

Response From Barrier Reef Australia

Adrian we thank you for your review of your Cairns scenic flight We are thinking you would have been taxiing on the airport apron waiting for clearance for take off due to the heavy incoming traffic of other flights hopefully the low level flight would have been all you had hoped and provided amazing views of the Great Barrier Reef We look forward to your return to Cairns in the future Please call us directly as we would love to personalise some tours for you next time
