Flow overdose the Great barrier and landed over the corals, then went on a glassbottom boat to snorkle for an hour. Then flew back to Whitsunday Island. It was a mega WOW!

a wonderful way to see the great barrier reef. pilots were professional and customer focused. Having visited the reef by boat, a sea plane makes the journey fast and the aerial views are worth every cent.

A 2 hour boat ride to the Barrier Reef. Their floating pontoon site was phenomenal!!. It had sunbathing facilities,an observatory level for under water viewing,bathrooms,changing area,and restaurant. We have snorkeled many times before but this was the best "how to" we have had on the equipment and technique. You could snorkel, scuba dive for beginners and professionals. You could also take helicopter rides over the area as well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A must do!!!

Might be the most expensive trip, but the panorama tour is worth every penny. We flew from Hayman, with our pilot Drew, who was fantastic - great, very friendly, chatty and determined to make sure everyone had a good time. Having never been on a seaplane before the experience was wonderful, even for a nervous flyer like me! The views were spectacular, both of Whitehaven and of the Barrier Reef,including Heart Reef - Drew flew over twice to give both sides of the plane proper chance to see and take photos. The silica sand on Whitehaven was so soft. An hour isn't long there but time enough to sit and have a glass of sparkling wine and enjoy it. Drew let us take lots of photos sitting on the floats of the plane. Only downside was the algae at this time of the year - perfectly natural but does slightly spoil the photos as the sea is brown not blue. Snorkelling on the reef was also good. We chose to wear the stinger suits provided as they gave some reassurance even though they probably weren't needed. This tour was one of our highlights of our trip to Australia. Thanks Air Whitsunday!

We took the tour from Hayman Island to the reef, with the flight, the glass bottom boat and the snorkeling activity.
FANTASTIC. The views from the plane are very nice, the heart reef seen from above is stunning, the snorkeling amazing.
A must do !
