Highlights

  • Instant Confirmation
  • Scenic helicopter flight
  • Buffet lunch included
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • See the underwater world without getting wet
  • Snorkel gear included

Arriving at the skydive site, you will be briefed for your skydive. You'll board a Cresco 750, Australia's fastest skydive plane, and soar to your jump height. From 11,000 feet (3048 meters) you will jump from the plane for 30 seconds of freefall, before your instructor releases the chute. There is no better way to enjoy unobstructed, uncrowded views of Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef. This is a tandem skydive, no experience necessary!

With the adrenaline still pumping, head to the heliport for a 25-minute helicopter flight over the Great Barrier Reef. There's no better way to see the vast scope of this amazing ecosystem, which can be seen from space. You've seen the reef from above, now its time to see beneath the surface. Land at an exclusive pontoon at North Hastings Reef and spend the afternoon snorkeling in the world famous Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Swim amongst colorful schools of tropical fish and an amazing array of coral formations. Snorkel instructors are on hand to help you out and all snorkeling equipment is provided.

Divers are not forgotten either with scuba diving available for both beginners and experienced divers at an additional cost.

You'll have around two hours to enjoy the underwater activities and a tropical buffet lunch is served on the boat. As your day draws to a close, enjoy a complimentary glass of wine on the cruise back to Cairns where transport to your hotel awaits.
