General air charter is offered to mining, government and corporate clients. During the Lizard Island Day Tour clients experience several hundred kilometres of the Great Barrier Reef and world heritage rainforest of Far North Queensland as well as spending six hours on the ground to snorkel some of the world’s most beautiful reef. Clients have the option of spending their time on the island snorkelling, exploring the island or simply relaxing under the Casuarina trees. The spectacular reef, the unspoilt island in the coral sea combined with the scenic flight over the reef and rainforest makes this a very special day. During September of 2012 Daintree Air installed a state of the art Synthetic Flight Trainer valued at approximately $40,000 dollars.During November of 2012 the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia approved the trainer to be used for the purpose of Licence Renewals, Pilot Training, and Pilot Recency for instrument approaches.We now have one of the very most advanced CASA approved Pilot Training Devices in Australia here in Cairns, to be used by Daintree Air Pilots as well as for the use of Pilots from other Companies whom wish to use the trainer for currency. « less

What a day, excellent in every way. Best day I have had one a trip for a long time. Low level flying over the coast and reef, trip to the tip, lunch on the beach and flying back via Weipa and back to Cairns. You might think the cost is high but if you don't go you will regret. The... More

We used Daintree for a day trip to Lizard Island. Greg was absolutely amazing, great pilot, and better host to us on the island. It was day filled with laughs and smiles. The flights to Lizard over the reef was breathtaking as was the return flight over the bush. Greg and the Daintree team made the day unforgettable!

Well worth the time and expense. Very safe flight and wonderful pilot. Great ground tour made even better by the host. Well fed. Walk to the tip is not for those with bad knees and hips! Unforgettable

what a great day, expensive but worth every cent. Flew low level over the reef on the way up and down the west coast to Weipa before heading back to Cairns on the return. Office staff were friendly, Greg, the boss was true blue and Bret the pilot looked like he was 15 but flew like he had been doing... More

A few days ago we flew with Daintree Air to Lizard Island and were the first tourists there after the cyclone. The whole day was amazing and, while there was evidence of a cyclone (broken branches off trees, etc) it did not affect the experience of the day at all. 2 separate snorkelling spots, the giant clams were still there...

To all at Daintree Air Services. We have just returned home after 3 months travelling around the world. Our flight over the Great Barrier Reef with Daintree Air on 18th Dec 2013 was one of the highlights of our trip to Australia and of the whole trip. This was what we wrote in an email to Greg, the Chief Pilot... More

One of my dreams was to fly over the Great Barrier Reef and see for my own eyes what I'd only seen before in pictures. Daintree Air gave us a fantastic look over the GBR and made sure both sides of the aircraft were able to see the sights. They also managed to fit us into the schedule in a... More

My family nad I have taken the Lizard Island day trip annually for the past two years and will definitely be doing it again. The return flight over the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef and cape York is stunning in itself. However, the true treasure of this day is some of the best snorkelling and amazing creatures the reef has... More
