What people are saying about Far North Queensland

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!

If I could give this more stars I would, Sean was AMAZING he made you feel so at home and comfortable throughout the whole process. Didn’t feel like you were just a number or money to the team it actually felt like they were your friends and wanted you to enjoy it and have the best experience possible absolutely worth every dollar spent HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Purchased as a surprise for our friends special birthday. It was something that she had never experienced before, having practically done most every other adventure. The whole experience went so well, from the initial "shock" to the care and attention given by the staff at the Aquarium, who made it such a great experience for both swimmer and audience!

This was the best thing we’ve done in Australia ! Such an incredible experience and the pilot was amazing!! Loved every minute of it
