The 40-minute scenic flight will offer a perspective of the reef like no other. Taking off from just outside Cairns CBD it’s the fastest and most spectacular way to see the Great Barrier Reef, without having to get wet.
You can expect to fly out over magical Green Island on your way to the reef. Your pilot will execute low flying passes so you can look out for reef sharks, turtles, beautiful corals and more.
With a guaranteed window seat and multiple passes of each location you won’t be leaning over your friend, family or stranger to get your next insta pic.
This 40 minute flight will fill your camera full of photos and your mind full of memories. It’s great value for money and we think it’s a must do on any vay-cay to Far North Queensland, just don’t forget to charge up your camera beforehand.
Book the Cairns Reef Hopper with the legends at GSL Aviation and might just be the best thing you ever do.
Brilliant experience. Unbelievable views of the reef. The pilot (Steve) was excellent. Very friendly and pointed out landmarks/wildlife. Would certainly recommend to anyone considering this experience.
