First of all the company are very professional and extremely safety conscious, from check in to all safety briefings. We met our pilot who really wasn't the most cheerful, engaging or enthusiastic person we met during our stay in the Whitsundays. This lack of enthusiasm continued throughout the trip. The flight was sensational with the views over the reef really... More

Unforgettable experience! Amazing trip in a seaplane to Whitehaven Beach. Great Pilot who landed on Whitehaven. We flew above Whitsunday. We spent a wonderful afternoon with our hostess Amanda on the most beautiful beach!

Great family flight over the reef, including a stop at the fabulous Whitehaven beach! The staff at the airport and the pilot were lovely - friendly and helpful. The sea plane ride was smooth and allowed great views of the Whitsundays and the reef. Very enjoyable and memorable.

This was a spectacular highlight to our trip to Australia! We did the reef adventure tour and had the most beautiful views of the Reef from the air. Then we got to snorkel around the outer Reef. Absolutely loved this experience. Then the pilot dropped us off on the beach, which was so fun and an awesome experience. Highly recommend!!!

After a lot of thought, we decided to splash out (literally as it turned out). Best trip we have ever done, it was wonderful. The company and staff are great, well organised, friendly and really helpful. The aircraft are great, brilliant flights, sights and to land on Whitehaven beach, drink wine and then fly back was superb. Many thanks Air... More

Everything about this half day tour was spectaular. The pilots are knowledgable and confident in the air...safety first as always. We circled above Heart Reef so we could take the picture perfect photo. To see the reef by air and to be snorkling up close with the coral and fish is simply breathtaking. To top it off we had cheese... More

Highly recommend! The view from the plane was amazing, in an hours flight we did an overview of the islands, i preferred seeing it from the plane than the boat tours.
