Stunning 60 Minute Whitsundays Helicopter Flight

We will not be landing on a beach or an island as we will be seeing all there is possible to see in 60 minutes from the helicopter.

This Great Barrier Reef & Island helicopter tour is one of our signature scenic flights from Airlie Beach.

The 60 minute flight includes all of the best sites the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef have to offer.

It’s easy to understand why the Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the World. 

The amazing contrast of colours is something that is best experienced from the seat of a helicopter. 

As we fly at low levels, we have the maneuverability to allow you to spot items of interest such as migrating whales and other marine life.

Taking off from Whitsunday Airport, your flying tour takes you over a hug number of the islands in the Whitsundays.

You'll see the island resorts dotted around the reefs as you head toward Whitehaven Beach and the renowned Hill Inlet.

Enjoy two passes of Australia's best beach and then head out to the Great Barrier Reef. Included in your helicopter scenic flight is the famous Heart Reef, nestled amongst the bright colours and patterns of Hardy Reef.

In our fleet of helicopters everyone enjoys a window seat for maximum viewing and informative pilot commentary as we fly over the Great Barrier Reef islands and coral reefs below.
