Scenic Helicopter Flights | Great Barrier Reef Platform | GBR&GA

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 gardens 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.

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.
