    BETTER THAN A HELICOPTER! This experience was great. The company was highly professional yet down to earth. The safety brief was informative and funny. ITS THE LITTLE THINGS! Like clean windows so we can take photos without scratches or smear marks. Like the pilot turning the plane to both right and left sides so we could see what he was talking about. Also going around a rain patch instead of thru which was both picturesque and stopped rain drops on the windows. The reason I reckon it’s better than a chopper is we were at 1000-1500 metres and we got a great over view of the reef rather than being lower and having a smaller scope, unless you want to land on an island, a chopper would be better. The 40 minutes was made up of 20 minutes over the reef and its small islands and 10 minutes flying out to the reef and 10 return both giving views of Cairns and its surrounding islands and maintain ranges. Great commentary even listening to the pilot communicating with other pilots as well as the tower. All in all well with the money which is cheaper than a chopper and in my opinion better views overall. We felt safe, comfortable and considered for a very scenic view

    Everything about this flight was amazing. The crew was really nice and the pilot gave us a lot of information about the reefs and the islands. I still can't believe what I saw and can't describe how beautiful it was! Thank you!

    Spent $179 on a Barrier Reef scenic flight. Best $179 I’ve spent in a long, long time. The flight itself was straight up magical. I’m an aviation geek myself and was lucky enough to be able to sit in the copilot seat. Plus all staff were very friendly and helpful, start to finish. Would give 6 stars if I could. Don’t think about this. Just book it.

    A fantastic experience and well worth the cost, we were fortunate to have stunning weather and Cameron our pilot also made it a relaxing and enjoyable flight. The reef was the other star of the day and from the air it gives you the opportunity to get an idea of the size of these individual sections of the overall reef. I would highly recommend Daintree Air Services.

    Had an exceptional experience with Captain Thomas! Highly recommend this flight to anyone and everyone looking to tour The Great Barrier Reef. Prices are fair. You will get a window seat no matter how many are in your group. The views are unbelievable and once in a lifetime worthy.
