The pilot on our flight was awesome and great experience as a family. The sail was good but be nice if kids could have a drink on arrival too.

Great trip, flight and island boat tour
Jul 2021 • Couples
We had a great day! The flight out over the islands and the Great Barrier Reef was stunning and you get your money’s worth. The boat tour with Kurt, Dimy and Captain Mark was great, the lunch was very nice, the walking tour, trip to Whitehaven and the snorkelling were all very enjoyable. Recommend this tour to any age group.

It says 3 hours on the ticket. By the time you have to drive all the way to Proserpine it takes much longer. Had to cancel the sail as a result because we had dinner plans. Was refused a refund on the sail portion....
Much better off picking one of the flights that go from Airlie airstrip.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are sorry to hear your experience did not match your expectations. Our advertising advises you will spend 60 minutes flying and 2 hours sailing. As you now know, the airport is not situated beside the marina, therefore, there is travel time between each tour. We made the decision to take-off from Proserpine Airport as it provides you with aerial views of the Conway Ranges, Proserpine, Proserpine River and Airlie Beach surroundings which you cannot gain taking-off from Whitsunday Airport (Flametree). Again, we are thankful for your feedback as we are always looking to improve our tours and experiences. We hope you enjoyed your scenic flight and the rest of your time in Airlie Beach. We do hope to have you join us again. Kindly, GSL Whitsundays

Amazing Experience
Jun 2021
The 1 hour scenic flight was amazing, the weather was perfect and we got some fabulous photos, we were on the larger plane which was more comfortable. I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting to tick the Great Barrier Reef off their bucket list.

Sunset sail and Barrier Reef with Providence
.We all met at the harbour late in the afternoon and did the sunset sail part of our activity first as our Barrier Reef flight was delayed due to high winds. We motored out of the harbour and raised the sails, then enjoyed the silence as the engine was turned off. The views looking back towards Airlie Beach were impressive with the sun going down and a glass of bubbly with cheese and dips to snack on.
The crew were friendly and told us details of the history of Providence, the twin masted, wooden hulled yacht we were sailing on as we slowly rounded the bay. Extra drinks were available for purchase so we chugged a few more down.

The next day the wind had dropped enough for our flight over the Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands. You really need to see this from the air to appreciate the scale and beauty from above. And of course we saw the famous ‘heart shaped reef’!

Really enjoyed our experience:)

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave this great review. Our Fly and Sail Package was created as we believe Providence Sailing offer a great sunset sail that we want all to experience. Combining that with a scenic flight showcasing the Whitsundays' highlights is definitely a great way to spend your day. We are so pleased to hear you had a wonderful time with us both and had the opportunity to experience it. We hope you were able to take some great photos - don't forget to tag us so we can see how much fun you had. Kindly, GSL Whitsundays

Fantastic flight
The scenic flight was absolutely amazing, from getting on the shuttle bus to the plane and flying over the iconic heart reef. The bus driver (Jenni) offered a lot of local knowledge and was wonderful.
Our cruise was cancelled due to weather but we were lucky enough to have sailed on the Providence earlier in the week and the crew and boat were excellent.
Highly recommend
