Great Barrier Reef Scenic Helicopter Tour and Cruise from Cairns
Reviewed by: Inga Rasmussen, April 2014
What do you do, if you want to snorkel in The Great Barrier Reef, but you can't swim?? You seek the help from crew member Max from the company Down Under Cruise and Dive, who is my new hero. He helped me not only to get into the water, but took me on an amazing journey, where we swam with a tiny little shark, saw lots of turtles and colourful fish - big and small. I'm happy to report we even found Nemo!!! I flew back to Cairns by helicopter...as you do ;-) The weather wasn't brilliant, as we had the left over rain from the cyclone. Still a day I'll cherish for the rest of my days !!

We went out on a very lovely sunny and calm day so we enjoyed the trip very much. Snorkeling on two different spot was great. It was a bit crowded, as they try to get everyone in the water, even non-swimmers, who tend to stand on the corals (what is definitely very bad, espacially with fins) and keep hold on them etc. Food was nice, enough changing rooms etc. Really georgeous was our helicopter flight was, I really recommend this combination of cruise out and fly in.

We had a super day- the arrangements were perfect; the staff on the tour was cheerful and very supportive as we went snorkeling- appreciate their patience and concern for our safety. On-board lunch was outstanding- we had a memorable day and recommend this highly

I booked this tour for my bf's birthday. It was a surprise for him. He really loved it. We had 20-25 minutes helicopter tour over Great Barrier Reef then around 1 hour of snorkeling in middle of Great Barrier Reef. He was so happy and me too. Awesome day and awesome staff. Staff were great too. :)))

Outstanding trip. The group was also VERY accommodating of my poor swimming and snorkelling skills - I was dragged around. They made sure that I experienced the reef. 5/5 stars.

The Helicopter tour was outstanding. The Heli Tour group, Tom, Dave, and Brad , made all aspects of the tour amazing! It was a great experience for my wife and myself. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Cairns area.
