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.
