Nautilus Aviation were great for the helicopter flight. We were rather cramped however as we booked for the 4 of us & had 2 others put in with us. Certainly not Covid safe as we were very compact. Trip itself with the views well worth it. Staff excellent & friendly Boat was good, again not Covid safe . Snorkelling equipment shared & n it what I would say were well sanitised. But what the heck . Suck it up or take your own snorkel. Again staff were excellent. As a first time snorkeling the guided assistance was greatly appreciated . Lunch might be better to be more finger food as it was hard to eat the salads & pasta . Do your self a favour & be changed into your swimmers before heading off as the toilets are tiny . Was stressful to change as no where to place your clothes. However , in giving you the full facts of our experience, it was still a good day You have to do yourself the indulgence of the helicopter to really appreciate the reef Enjoy the day
Thank you to our pilot Steve, and the great ground crew of Pearl and Chris. This was such a great experience, well organised and with safety always paramount. Even though the plane was smaller than I thought it was going to be, I felt safe the whole time. The views were beautiful and the 40 minutes went so fast. Best way to see the reef is from the air. Highly recommended this tour.
I must admit I didn’t realise it would be a plane, got it into my head it was a helicopter! Having said that it was a smooth, comfortable flight and seeing the Reef from the air was amazing. The good thing was the pilot went around things sometimes a couple of times so both sides got to see the view. Sometimes low so we could see nature at its best. Amazing.
Loved it. If you get sea sick definitely recommend a nausea tablet before hand. There were a couple people sick but other than that the whole thing was amazing. Definitely recommend.
We were only 2 in the plane. They picked up from hotel then drop off. The pilot was friendly and expert to told us everything about reef. Thank you for everything
