Beautiful views and informative commentary. Great photo opportunities and you really get a sense of how large the Whitsundays really are. Pilot was catering to both sides of the plane for the important landmarks which was nice and everyone had a window seat. 100% worth the money

We absolutely loved this trip! Well organised and thoroughly professional. And as for the views over the Whitsundays and the Reef… no words adequate to describe. Would highly recommend.

It is a 100% Musthave! Like in a fairy tale! Besides, our wonderful pilot let us,really enjoy the divine nature
