I am so, so glad I saw the Heart Reef. We went on a scenic flight and flew over the reef. It is beautiful and the colours of the water and the reef out there are just incredible. You wouldn't believe it until you saw it and photos just do not do justice!! Definitely recommend.

It's been on my bucket list for 10 years and I finally got to see it in person. Well, sort of… The only way to see Heart Reef is by plane and that's exactly what I've done! It's not as big as you'd think - actually quite small, so make sure you see it as you fly over!

See this iconic reef on advertising etc, everywhere... We got a chopper ride over the whitsundays, outer reef.. And almost missed seeing it as we're looking for something bigger!

I'll keep it simple - amazing. Despite the cost of the seaplane tour it's worth it. Definitely a must do if you want to take in the best view and extent of the Great Barrier Reef.

We flew by helicopter with Heli Reef and would highly recommend it. The heart reef is smaller than expected but still a special thing to see.
