Amazing!! We ended up on Turtle beach, had our breakfast there and went snorkeling a bit.

It was super nice and relaxing. The pilot was great and amazing she took us for a tour around the reef, just beautiful.

Just do it
5 of 5 stars Pending review
Nautilus helicopters excelelnt trip out to the reef, what else can I write, you own little part of the Great Barrier Reef for two and a half hours.
Both ground staff and our pilot Jenna provided excellent no hassle service, from check-in, to both the out-bound and in-bound flights.
The condition of the helicopter look new, fresh out of the box so to speak very clean.
Jenna provided a running comentry concerning the reef on both the outbound and inbound flights and answered any questions.
Being educated in England with we know little or nothing of Australians geography or history.
Food hamper was again excellent, nice to sit back, eat and watch the world go by on your own little atoll.
The helicopters arrival temporary disturbs the resident birds who return minutes latter.
The snorkling was just enough, you have to go to the edge of the sand bar in order to see any local inhabitants.

Well worth it, excellent staff unlike those I encounter at offshore check in's around the world.
Get your money out, just do it you will not regret it.

The people at the tour company were very friendly and comfortable to be around. The food was fantastic! We weren't exactly sure what we expected, but this experience far exceeded everything we could have imagined! Highly recommend it to anyone wanting a "private" experience on the Great Barrier Reef. Much better than riding 2 hours each way in a boat and having to spend 4hrs on a pontoon with numerous other vacationers.

For a special occasion, or even just because, this is a sensational trip to do. On time, professional pick up from our hotel, followed by a required safety information session, but it wasn't long til we were in the sky. Landing on Middle Cay just as the tide was receding was fantastic. While we snorkelled, our pilot laid out a picnic rug and champagne brunch - a very generous offering compared to others we have experienced! Having two hours to snorkle, swim, lie in the sun and just enjoy the reef was wonderful. An experience we couldn't recommend more highly!
