Last week, I was lying on the bed reading a book at our villa in Port Douglas, and my partner Joe suggested we walk down to the beach. However, once in town, he diverted me to the marina which is in a totally different direction. Confused, I was led to a helicopter that was set down on the wharf. Bradley our pilot and Joe instructed me to hop in as it swept us up and out over the coastline and reefs. We saw sharks and sea snakes, flew low over sea turtles and dolphins and stingrays, and took in the most amazing reefs and sand cays. Heading inland, Bradley flew over a ridge in the mountainous rainforest and low into a winding river, heading straight towards one of the most magnificent and isolated waterfalls I've ever seen. And then he set down the helicopter. On top of the waterfall. Hopping out, we were encouraged to go and have a swim in the pristine waterholes, bath in the waterfalls and snorkel for turtles and fish. Meanwhile, Bradley had set up an afternoon tea of wine and cheese and fruit. Left completely alone and to ourselves, Joe asked me to marry him and presented me with the most beautiful diamond. I am quite sure he has made me the happiest girl alive!
None of it would have been possible without Bradley and Za from Skysafari. Za had close communications with Joe for months of organisation before, and they were both just so happy to help and be a part of it. Having had a few helicopter tours in our time, we're both always happily surprised at just how cool helicopter pilots are in general - always passionate, fun and laid back.
Thank you SkySafari for the best day of my life so far!
