Feel the exhilaration of flying over the ancient World Heritage-listed rainforest canopy and watching as the lush green tones change to the vibrant blues and greens of the Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef.Seeing the dramatic beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is an extraordinary experience - flying over it is simply awe-inspiring.

Had an incredible trip today, 40 minute scenic from Port Douglas. The views were phenomenal and we saw rays, dugong and a shark. Our pilot Judd was great - felt very safe in his hands!
