I thought it would be a lot bigger but it’s actually so cute and tiny. Great experience on a scenic flight over it. Was great to see everything from above at a different perspective.

Absolutely a 10/10 moment in our lives.
Traveled by helicopter with Hamilton Island Air.
Trip took 3 hours, with glass bottom boat ride, snorkelling & champagne.
The whole trip was 6 Star, impeccable service, small group(5 on our helicopter) and great value.
Highly recommend this trip you will never forget it.

We flew over the reef early in the morning & for all the build up for Heart Reef, it was not that big. Our expectations were too high but that was from what we were had read in travel guides. A small heart shaped reef in the the focus but the overall experience of the flight was absolutely wonderful. Recommended. Just do it! You won't be disappointed.

took a little flight over with the chopper and it was worth taking the flight rather than the cruise because we could see this amazing formation from a birds eye view

Took a seaplane trip from Whitehaven Beach with GSL Marine out over the reef including Heart Reef. Amazing colours and coral formations. Heart reef is smaller than I thought and it passes underneath in a flash. Thankfully our pilot gave us a good heads up and did a couple of passes. Simply stunning and well worth the extra cost to take the flight.

Words can not describe how beautiful this place is. My family took a helicopter tour via Hamilton Island. Just sensational, an experience we will never forget. Well worth it, just try to pick a day with good weather and clear skies.

GSL Whitsundays offer flights over the Whitsunday Islands, Great Barrier Reef including Heart Reef from Airlie Beach Airport. These flights are sensational and a must for all ages.

This is a flight in either of 2 small planes. Our plane was an 8 seater and I was lucky enough to be the co pilot. Not that that means anything though. I was just lucky enough to be sitting beside the pilot and therefore had a great view for the whole trip. The pilot was well informed and told us all about where we were going and what to see throughout the flight. We got some great photos and this is a great experience to do.
