Nick was great crack and had an amazing interest and telling us everything

Enjoy a delightful flight experience over the stunning landscapes of the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. The comfortable fixed-wing aircraft offers a great opportunity for big window viewing. As you enjoy the vista below you, insightful commentary from your expert pilot will let you in on interesting facts about the area.

The 60-minute flight will take you over many of the 74 Whitsunday Islands, Whitehaven Beach, and the postcard-worthy Hill Inlet. Keep your eyes peeled for the beautiful Heart Reef. As the name suggests, the exquisite composition of coral naturally forms the shape of a heart.
