Why do we love this

"We love the fact you're guaranteed a window seat which makes the experience even better because you won't miss a thing!"





Your sky high adventure begins at Cairns airport, from there you will take to the skies in our specially designed high-wing aircraft, with guaranteed window seats for everyone on board. Enjoy spectacular views of turquoise blue waters, tropical islands and a whole host of marine life. Did you know that the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing on Earth and can be seen from outer space? You really need to see if from the air to truly appreciate it!


Once in the air you'll fly over Green Island, this island is a 6000 year old coral cay located within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The island itself is a national park and home to over 120 native plant species, colourful bird life and heaps of marine life to explore. It’s the only coral cay on the Great Barrier Reef with a rainforest growing on it


After taking in more astonishing views, you'll head back to the mainland and fly over the picturesque coastal town of Port Douglas and along the renowned North Queensland coastline back towards Cairns. Some of our favourite sights along the way include Cairns, Green Island, Arlington Reef, Upolu Reef, Batt Reef, Tongue Reef, Port Douglas and Palm Cove. Did you know that Batt Reef is one of the largest reefs in the entire Great Barrier Reef? It measures 18km long and 5km wide, Batt Reef is about three times the size of Cairns city!
