I called on 1 day notice and they fit me and my wife in...they did an awesome job accommodating us. We were only able to do the 1 hour scenic flight but it was worth it, and because of wind conditions, unable to land in the water...we got a discount too. Our pilot was great...we saw hill inlet, heart reef,... More

I took the Reef Adventure Flight yesterday and will never forget it. With just four other guests we flew over Heart Reef, landing at Hardy Lagoon. The pilot, Lee, was very helpful and shared lots of information about the region and the environment. We had one of those perfect days with not a breath of wind; the water was like... More

After another scenic plane ride over the reef, landing at their private glass-bottom boat for a ride to an awesome protected snorkeling area. Stayed for another hour to snorkel and more snacks and drinks before heading... More

We had made the decision to this this activity ' the Great Barrier Reef adventure' on our arrival onto the island. Fortunately there were a few spaces left for the following morning adventure. It absolutely surpassed all expectations. We did upgrade to pay for the extra to scooper dive after explaining that I am an extremely poor swimmer and never... More

What a way to finish a three week trip to Australia. The panorama seaplane tour takes in a flight over the whitsunday islands and a particularly stunning part of the Great Barrier Reef, lands on water for a short glass bottomed boat ride and snorkelling stop followed by sparkling wine or fruit juice. Then on to the stunning Whitehaven beach... More

We had an amazing experience using Air Whitsunday from the time i directly booked with Air Whitsunday Day Tours. We booked the Whitehaven Experience and enjoyed every minute of it. I was lucky enough to sit in the co pilot seat with our pilot, Taku (I think that was his name!) who was very kind and relaxed but always making... More

This is a must do for anyone. Air Whitsunday are a great professional company. Our pilot Simon was great very knowledgeable of the history of the Islands and about the Great Barrier Reef. The Beaver Seaplane was fantastic. 10 out of 10 bucket list ticked.

First of all the company are very professional and extremely safety conscious, from check in to all safety briefings. We met our pilot who really wasn't the most cheerful, engaging or enthusiastic person we met during our stay in the Whitsundays. This lack of enthusiasm continued throughout the trip. The flight was sensational with the views over the reef really... More
