Exclusive Port Douglas helicopter scenic flight to a remote sand cay in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef for a romantic day for two or for a family to enjoy sometime together.

There are two ways to see the amazing sights of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and that is diving and snorkelling under the water and also flying above the water on a Port Douglas helicopter flight.

We offer a very exclusive 3 hour scenic flight tour in our state of the art helicopters for guests staying in Port Douglas to fly out to a remote sand cay in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef where they can snorkel, swim and sun bathe in total privacy.

Our helicopter takes off from the Port Douglas helicopter pad near the Sheraton Mirage Resort and flies guests past the Low Isles and lush green rainforest clad mountains of the Daintree Rainforest out to the centre of the Great Barrier Reef to Undine Sand Cay.

Once the helicopter is landed at the sand cay your private pilot sets to work to set up your beach umbrella and gourmet picnic hamper which includes a bottle of sparkling wine whilst you explore the sand cay and do some snorkelling in the azure waters and coral gardens that surround the remote sand cay.   

Our private charter helicopter flights are in high demand for those romantic occassions for just two and for families who wish to experience something so memorable and so special together as a family.
