The flight over the outer Great Barrier Reef is an absolute must and was absolutely fantastic and awesome. I must say I never really understood what we have at our doorstep here in Australia. Our pilot (think his name was Liam) was very knowledgeable and experienced. The cruise on the tall ship was great and the feeling of the wind taking you along was exhilarating. With the trip out to and back from the airport near Prosepine it ends up quite a big day but one well worth it.

It was raining most of the time which was a shame but we still went up and it was amazing !! couldn’t recommend doing a scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef if you are up here. definitely recommend going to Ocean Rafting!!

The flight is the best experience I have ever had the spectacular barrier reef and the cruise was relaxing, 100% recommended

Amazing flight ! Wonderful vue. You get enough time and space from the place to see everything. I recommend

Awesome way to see reef from 2 perspectives Best time
