There are 10, 15, 40 and 120 minute scenic tours offered – for a little excitement in your life climb aboard the bell helicopter and take a ride into the Whitsunday sky. The excitement of the flight and the stunning views out over the islands will make this the best fun ever.

If you want a day with a difference try the Picnic Rendezvous tours with two destinations to choose from. Enjoy a helicopter flight over islands and waterways then quality time on a secluded beach in the Whitsundays all to yourself with a succulent picnic hamper and ice-cold champagne. Allow up to two hours for your Aviation Adventure’s Picnic Rendezvous.

Want to go to the Barrier Reef? Fly both ways. Here are three flights in one. This trip not only includes a scenic flight to and from the reef but it also includes a stop over on beautiful Whitehaven Beach, Langford Reef and a scenic flight over Hook Hardy’s and the famous Heart Reef. Along the way the experienced pilot will point out the many unique features of the area and words just can’t explain the thrill you will experience flying over the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef. Your Aviation Adventure then continues at Langford Reef where you can swim and view the breathtaking coral gardens at your leisure with a gourmet champagne picnic hamper.

The Deluxe Whitsunday Unlimited tour will leave you breathless. Your flight takes you over all the high spots in and around the beautiful Whitsunday Islands including Daydream, South Molle, world-renowned Hayman Island, Hook, Whitsunday Island and stunning Hill Inlet and then touches down for a one-hour champagne stopover at Whitehaven Beach.
