What to expect
Meet your helicopter pilot at the launch pad then take to the skies for your scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef. Take in the view from the air before landing at the large pontoon at Moore Reef. The staff welcomes you and serves up a buffet lunch. Afterward,  you can see the fish and coral reef up close while snorkeling. Alternatively you can see the reef without getting wet by taking a glass-bottom boat or a semi-submersible tour. Watch a fish-feeding presentation and check out the marine life in the touch tank. Enjoy the provided tea and coffee before your leisurely cruise back to Cairns.

Helicopter ride was amazing
Nov 2017 • Friends
I used to live in Australia and have been to the Great Barrier reef many times. The helicopter ride was something I had not done and it was awesome. The Sun Lover floating platform had good points and bad points....

First the helicopter ride... OMG just do it!! was great. Had a good pilot. Even if all you do it the ride out and back ....totally worth it.

Now the floating platform had interesting good point (like the staff!!! and the things to do)...the downside were the other passengers.

On the platform there were a just ok buffet lunch. The glass bottom boat and glass enclosure on the platform was good. The snorkeling/diving was good also (even just floating on the surface was nice. Plenty of equipment and staff to help....did I mention the staff...they were very helpful and friendly....

Then were also tourist from "another country" and were the rudest-pushy people I have ever run into. They almost made the platform not worth going to.
