Great Barrier Reef Helicopter Flights | Reef Trip Combo | Snorkel & Dive | GBR-RM

Take in the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef with a low level scenic helicopter flight with Cairns Helicopters on your Great Barrier Reef tour to the Marine World pontoon. The two companies work in unison to provide a breathtaking reef experience for their guests. During the helicopter flight enjoy the spectacular patterns of the Great Barrier Reef system, spot coral cays and an array of larger marine life swimming in the clear lagoon waters. Choose from a 10 minute scenic flight from the helicopter pontoon out on the reef or upgrade your reef package to the really special boat cruise to the pontoon and enjoy a helicopter flight back to Cairns, or fly in the Helicopter from Cairns to the pontoon and retur by boat, or even better fly out to the pontoon and return to Cairns in the helicopter on our very popular fly/fly tour.
