This was a fantastic experience! Everything went smoothly and to plan, from initial booking to the actual helicopter flight. The pilot, Nicholas, was really friendly and interesting, generally chatting to us, as well as giving us relevant information and answering questions about what we were seeing. The flight itself was amazing and we saw the white sands of Whitehaven Beach and the beautiful swirls and turquoise/blue patterns of the sea. We marvelled at the extensive Great Barrier Reef below us, then arrived at the heart-shaped reef, circling it several times and were able to get wonderful photos of everything. This is definitely a trip for the bucket list and not to be missed!

Skydiving was always a wish for my life and I am super-glad to have done it above the Whitsundays Islands! Included scenic flight, got to go up to 4,500metres freefalling at over 200km/hr and enjoyed every second of it! Less scary than I expected, really cool feeling and adrenaline jumping out of a plane, I loved it! The views were great and got to see myself on video (paid extra) doing all of it too! One of the most memorable things I have done so far in my life.

This was an amazing experience. A helicopter flight will give you the best view possible of the reef, I highly recommend it if your budget allows. It's more costly than other things but totally worth it, I'd do it all over again! The helicopter pilot (can't recall his name) was a good bloke and definitely made the experience great.

Tandem masters made the experience comfortable and took a lot of the stress out of it! If you’re going to skydive anywhere, the Whitsundays is picturesque and I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else!

Excellent service, attention from instructors and care for equipment and jumping.
