Helicopter Scenic Flights | Great Adventures Platform | GBR

Flying over the Great Barrier Reef at a low level of only 500 feet in a helicopter is the ultimate way to experience the magnitude of our Natural Wonder of the World Australia's Great Barrier Reef. There is something very special about snorkeling amongst the coral and marine life and also soaring above from a different vantage point and seeing the lace like display of coral reef below. See marine life like whales, dolphins and manta ray's as they play in the crystal clear waters below. Landing or taking off from the Great Adventures activity platform in the outer Great Barrier Reef is an absolute treat. Choose to depart Cairns by boat or in a helicopter scenic flight and spend the day on the reef. Helicopter flights to the pontoon are 25 minutes or you can take a 10-15 minute scenic flight out on the platform on the outer Great Barrier Reef. A scenic helicopter flight really just has to be done as you never know if you will ever be back to see it again.

Perfect tour for those that love their photography. If you suffer from a little motion sickness eliminating a boat ride is perfect for you. To see the Great Barrier Reef from above really puts into perspective how big it really is.
