This is the most comprehensive scenic flight on offer from Airlie Beach!

Relax in absolute comfort as our seaplanes showcase the Whitsunday Island National Park and the breathtaking expanse of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park World Heritage Area. During the course of this 1 hour 20 minute scenic flight you will take in the sights of Conway National Park, Hamilton Island and the Whitsunday Passage before flying to Whitsunday Island. As you approach Whitehaven Beach you will start to see the stunning swirling sands of Hill Inlet and then accelerate across the Coral Sea to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park to take in the sights of Bait Reef, home of the amazing stepping stones, Hook Reef and Hardy Lagoon (the most photographed location of the entire Great Barrier Reef Marine Park!). We will also show off one of our biggest natural wonders to you, the perfectly shaped Heart Reef.

This flight is the perfect accompaniment to a Whitsunday sailing holiday (yacht pick-ups available), or is ideal for those who have already snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef, visited Whitehaven Beach or simply for those who don’t like to get their fee wet.

To top off this amazing flight we will descend to 500 feet whilst at the reef to take in all the sights of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park so you can possibly spot a turtle, rays or in the right season, pods of humpback whales. We will also show off with a touch and go water landing at the reef so you can experience the sensation of landing on the oceans surface in a seaplane.
