    From start to finish this was a truly fantastic experience. My friend Elise and I had a great flight and morning out on Whitehaven as a part of my birthday trip to Airlie Beach. On top of that our pilot Chris was brilliant and simply second to none All in all can’t recommend this flight option enough as it’s one of those lifetime experiences you don’t want to miss!
