It was a beautiful way to share hubbies 40th birthday by having the peaceful island beach to yourself, the food platter was huge and felt very surreal to be there watching the sunset. Woth every cent. The company was great to deal with, will be calling them again next time in Darwin. Thanks Guys

I recently took my two boys aged 4 and 7 on this trip we had a great time and the boys enjoyed it immensely. Grant, the pilot was great with the boys and coped well with their ability to talk constantly over the intercom and the office staff were most helpfull. I would highly recommend this to anyone with young kids. I found Airborne Solutions to be extremely helpful and accommodating thanks for Great trip Airborne will do this again for sure.

We recently took our office on a surprise charter over the Darwin Harbour, landing on Madorah beach. Airborne Solutions offered excellent service and were able to accomodate all of our needs. I would highly recommend their services to either individuals or groups alike. Well Done!

It was on my bucket list to see Kakadu by air, i rang airborne solutions and spoke to Paul about what what they had to offer he told me about all the thing we would see and do. as you do i was telling friends about my proposed flight they all told me it would be over rated they would have to fly to high and wont see much. but i still booked as i felt it was a must do thing.
well they were so wrong the experience was far more than what i expected, the views were surreal we flow down over crocs bores buffalo and down over rivers etc we dropped down to see aboriginal rock paintings it was so remote there were no tracks up to the sight it felt like we were the only ones to have been there before we had our two boys there 9 and 11it was like finding the lost sight. we left there and flew along Arnhem Land and Kakadu to then land on an other remote river bank were it felt like we were the only ones ever been there before.
we had launch there one the sandy river bank then wandered around sucking in the remoteness of the area, off we go again up the canyons over water fall and scrub fires. My wife Anna was hesitant about the trip but tells me she loved it because it was so different.
ITS A MUST DO

Went with my family on the day trip to kakadu.
The four of us were in one of their bigger helicopters and all had decent views, although sitting in the front was the highlight and we rotated this position throughout the day. The pilot (Paul) was knowledgable and friendly and took us to some great spots.
We also went for the optional airboat ride which was great fun and as well as seeing birds and crocs on the boat we were treated to the feeding of a giant "pet" croc in the area the boat left from.
Even the lunch was delicious.
Was truly a fantastic trip.
Only negative (which we knew and was organised before the trip) is that the price is very high, but if your going to splash out this trip is strongly recommended.

Yes the airboat ride does give you a chance to get up close and personal with the critters of the wetlands. We strive to provide high quality experiences and note the Kakadu Day Trip is an expensive tour option. Given flight distances involved, running costs of the helicopters and the brilliant views on offer at Kakadu, we do believe that this tour does offer value for money spent. Thank you so much for your review!
