DESCRIPTION

Minimum booking, 3 seats

Taking off from Cairns we head south-west over Trinity Inlet and the Aboriginal community of Yarrabah, to fly over Fitzroy Island. 

From Fitzroy we head north-west, towards the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Depending on the time of year, we may see some Humpback Whales which migrate to the waters below during the winter months. Beneath us the Coral Sea is interspersed with just some of the Great Barrier’s over 2,700 individual reefs. The water depth varies from 30m to 5m and you can often see right through to the ocean floor. This scenic tour will take you over both Michaelmas and Upolo Cays. 

We then cross the coast over the beautiful beachside resort township of Palm Cove. Here the golden beach is lined with tropical coconut trees. 

Heading inland we fly over the McAlister Range and Barron Gorge National Park. We continue our low-level flight over parts of the Wet Tropics World Heritage listed Rainforest. Beneath you lies a sea of green, a mountainous landscape covered in thick vegetation. Rugged granite peaks and mighty wild rivers are features of this southern section of the rainforest. A memorable way to finish a truly spectacular 60 minute helicopter adventure of the Great Barrier Reef. We return to land in Cairns.
