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.Reviewed by: William D, April 2013
We booked out tour with Viator (this being the first time). The whole day was perfect. We were picked up on time and brought to the marina for our reef snorkelling. What a awesome day and the highlight was being able to hire a underwater camera and have those photos put onto a cd to take home. The buffet lunch was very tasty and lots of food to go around. Morning and afternoon tea was also provided and that was very nice also. You did have to pay for stinger suits though which we highly recommend. The helicopter ride back was very nice and once landed we were brought back to our accomodation. The whole day was perfect and I could not have asked for anymore. Well done to all and highly recommend using Viator for your next booking. Happy travelling.Reviewed by: Michael C, January 2013
Absolutely incredible! I'd recommend the helicopter over the reef and you also have to snorkel. We were well looked after on this tour.Reviewed by: Lauren K, August 2012
The helicopter people are extremely nice and jovial but the flight out was uneventful. Saw one lone shark - no other sealife was visible. At the reef, we only allowed 1 1/2 hours to snorkel which wasn't a good value, IMO. What we did see was pretty good but if you have a chance, Moore reef is betterReviewed by: markhu56, December 2012
The description did NOT live up to reality. 1.) Tour Operator was 15 minutes late picking us up. That set things on a poor course for the remainder of the day. 2.) The helicopter flight was less than 20 minutes. I have video as proof - flight was only 18 minutes. 28% less time over.greatnomorespace!Reviewed by: Jeremiah F, February 2013
