For sand cay landing, all aviation operators are governed by Marine Park permits allocating minimum heights, distances and restrictions. Sand Cay landing may only occur if the Cay is vacant. In the unlikely event that the Cay is occupied, Sand Cay guests will receive additional flying time to a private beach location and no refund shall apply.

Tours and aircraft substitutions are subject to Management and/or pilot discretion, weather, air-traffic control and availability. 

Please note:-

Vlassoff Sandy Cay is a public cay which cannot be reserved as such.  If it is already occupied on the day of travel, either by another aviation operator or passengers from a vessel, due to safety regulations we are not permitted to land.  Our alternative beach landing site is Turtle Beach which is an idyllic beach backed by rainforest, but without reef (& therefore not a snorkelling spot), on the mainland just south of Cairns.  Please be advised no refund will be issued if the sites are occupied.  We prefer to offer early morning departures (around 8:00am) as this decreases the chance of the cay already being occupied.  Weekends, Public and School Holiday’s increase the chance of others occupying the cay & are recommended avoiding if possible.
