    Can, our pilot was very easy going but also right on the safety aspects. We were encouraged to chat with him and ask questions as we flew from the airport to Whitehaven Beach. We struck a day with a very high tide so not as much beach as usual. Still an amazing experience. Cam left us alone for 1.5 hours on the beach to swim and do as we pleased. Truly a great morning and for us a once in a life time experience.

    Best way to get to Whitehaven in my opinion. Cameron, the pilot was really friendly, views were amazing and the whole experience was hassle free. Had such a great time. Whitehaven is beautiful. My wife gets very seasick so this was a great option to visit the beach. Travel time was minimal and what better way to see it than from above. Excellent experience!

    We had an awesome morning with our first helicopter ride and first time at Whitehaven Beach Our pilot Chris was excellent and as I’m not keen on flying if any kind but he made the experience a great one Highly recommend flying with gsl and definitely worth taking a trip to Whitehaven Both Kevin and Jenni our bus drivers to and from the airport were great also (Jenni also gave us the heads up for a feed at Northerlies which we’ve just done now and it too was awesome)
