“Once in a lifetime experience”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We took the outer reef flight and Ocean Rafting boat day trip package and were not disappointed! I was a little anxious about flying in a small aircraft for the first time but was seated in the cockpit with our pilot Reece whose professionalism and regular updates put me at ease - I wanted to fly again when we landed! It was incredible seeing Whitehaven Beach at low-tide and the Heart Reef in particular but the scenery throughout the flight is stunning, an amazing once in a lifetime experience.

Our thanks to Dan and GSL Aviation. It was truly a magnificent experience and can not recommend these guys highly enough. The trip was breathtaking and really a once in a lifetime experience. As a nervous flyer Dan's constant updates and advice as to what to expect throughout the flight was of great comfort. Thank you GSL, we are real fans and it made our honeymoon. (Flight 24/5/14 - one hour scenic)

“Excellent Scenic Flight”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We took the one hour Reef Island Flight Tour knowing it was quite a lot of money (although nearly $100 per person less than the alternative flight we were looking at) but thinking we probably won't come back here again, so what the heck. It was money well spent! The pilot was attentive, informative and gave really good tips about when and where to take photos from. We flew up and down Whitehaven beach so both sides of the plane could get good views, and did the same over Heart Reef as well.

We smiled all the time during this trip, I would definitely recommend this tour!

“Well Worth the Money”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Hubby and I had a day trip planned while Nana babysat for us. We decided to pay the extra money and do a Scenic Flight and Ocean Rafting day package.
Our day started with a 1 hour flight through and past the islands, then out to Reefworld, past Hearty Reef (Twice thank you) then down to Whitehaven Beach, back past Hamilton Island.
Our pilot was fantastic, very informative. We even flew through a Full Circle Rainbow which was amazing.
Very organised, friendly staff.
Thank you for a wonderful morning.
