  • Overview

    A scenic helicopter flight over the reef is an opportunity not to be missed!

    You will be amazed by the stunning blue and green hues of these pristine coral sea waters and their thriving coral gardens, home to the greatest concentration of life anywhere on the planet.    

    Departing over Port Douglas and famous 4-Mile Beach, enjoy picture-perfect views of stunning Low Isles, comprised of two coral cay islands, 55 acres of fringing reef and a famous lighthouse (circa 1878).   

    In the distance see Snapper Island at the mouth of the mighty Daintree river, before flying along the entire length of spectacular Tongue Reef. 

    Many of the larger marine species are most easily spotted from the air. As we continue out over Batt Reef, join your eagle-eyed pilot in the search for Sea Turtles, Sharks, Manta Rays, Dolphins, Dugong and even majestic Humpback Whales (Jul-Sep).  Do not forget your camera!

    We were extremely lucky to have experienced this on the day we were there. The weather was not favourable in the morning however it did clear up. The communication with this company was brilliant. They kept in touch with us about the expectations of the day. The pilot was knowledgeable and friendly and the everything is explained so well for you to feel very safe and have a fantastic experience. To see the Great Barrier Reef from this view was like nothing else. Thank you to Nautilus Aviation. Highly recommended.

    One of the best experiences I’ve ever had!!! You cannot put a price on this outstanding trip. The day was absolutely perfect and the pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly. We forgot his name but he was such a great pilot. We were fortunate enough to land on the sandcay and have a beautiful picnic followed by snorkelling. The food in the picnic was absolutely awesome!!! We got given so much and it was delicious! The picturesque views were one of a kind and the snorkelling was fantastic. We got to see so much of the reef - it was the best!!! I would do this trip over and over again if I could. Thank you so much it was the best day ever!!! If I could give 10 stars I would.

    Flew into 40 in style today! My partner organized a suprise for me that was nothing short of AMAZING! Private helicopter to Vlasoff Cay which is surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef were we snorkled, then a champagne gourmet picnic, a scenic tour with breath taking views and just us. Unforgettable and super special. Feeling overwhelmed by this whole experience and truly grateful, highly recommended

    I had organised surprising my partner with a joy flight above the Great Barrier Reef. This experience included landing on a private sand cay where we ate amazing food professionally prepared, snorkelled and relaxed. I must say I was blown away! Everything from start to finish was absolutely perfect. The team was so lovely and made planning something like this effortless. I highly recommend this for anyone who plans to do a grand romantic gesture.Thanks again Nautilus for some of our best memories!

    The most perfect way to see the great barrier reef. An even more perfect way to share a once in a lifetime experience of flying with a friendly experienced pilot with lots of local knowledge out to a secluded sand cay that pops up out of the reef to land on and enjoy a gourmet picnic and hamper with champagne, before snorkelling in a pristine coral reef. An idealic location to pop the question. The best experience on the great barrier reef.
