DESCRIPTION

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Daintree Air Services, Terminal 1, Tom McDonald Drive Cairns Airport, Aeroglen, Cairns, Queensland 4870 Australia

Daintree Air have been showing clients the very best of the Great Barrier Reef for over 35 years. We know the best places to view from the air, snorkel from the surface and or dive from below the surface. It has taken us half a life time to learn just a little about the Great Barrier Reef. Let us pass this knowledge and information onto you. 

The experienced team will advise you on the optimum time for viewing and photographing the the magnificent aqua blue and opal like colors of the Great Barrier Reef. Flights organised between 9:30am and 2:30pm will always be premium times to fly. At certain times a year viewing the reef outside these hours can be disappointing as shadows and reflections in the ocean caused by low sun, partial cloud cover and haze can limit the viewing quality. 

Your hotel pick up will be organised for approximately 40-minutes prior to your flight. All passengers will have a window seat. A flight brief is conducted in the air conditioned terminal using maps to show where the flight will go on the day. The direction of the flight is determined by the prevailing winds, the tides and of course the weather conditions. 

The route flown will usually take in Green Island, Upolu Cay, Oyster, Arlington, Vlassof and Michaelmas Reefs as well as views of Cape Grafton, False Cape, Double Island and the Northern Beaches of Cairns including Palm Cove.
