Great Adventures to the Great Barrier Reef

Fly directly to the Great Barrier Reef and return by luxury catamaran

After enjoying a morning at your own leisure, we will pick you up from your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation and take you to our helipad in the centre of town.  From here we will whisk you away on a spectacular scenic flight past the rainforest clad coastline, and over one of the greatest natural wonders of the world – the Great Barrier Reef.

The beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is yours to experience when you fly to the multi-level reef activity platform situated on the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef.  The spacious platform features undercover seating and tables to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch, full bar facilities, a swimming enclosure for children, change rooms with freshwater showers, sundeck, and scuba diving facilities with a semi-submerged platform.
