Recommendable

Good experience with incredible views over the reefs, however it was particularly mentioned for everyone to have a „guaranteed window seat“ which was more or less not really the case with on of our seats, which had one of us to really lean over to be as close to the window as a window seat. Overall still a very cool experience and probably cheaper than most of the short 5-10 minute helicopter flights that are offered from various companies all around Cairns

A MUST DO

This is clearly the best experience I had while visiting Cairns. The view is fantastic and even if the flight is a little bit short, the beauty of the scenery makes you realize how lucky we are to have such places in our planet and we must take care of them. I don't even have words to describe the team of all people involved in this. They are the most amazing person I had the chance to see. Thanks Captain Thomas, Chris and captain Greg (the super captain). I've probably forgotten some but I really thank you guys. You are all amazing
