Soar high in the sky on a chartered helicopter tour over the beautiful Great Barrier Reef, where you can marvel at the one of the Seven Wonders of the World from above, including the iconic heart reef – the instagram-worthy hero of this magnificent marine park.
Take in the glorious patchwork of reefs that make up the UNESCO Heritage Site, which stretches for more than 3,000 kilometers along Queensland’s tropical coastline.
As you are in the air, the pilot or co-pilot will offer in-flight commentary as you fly over different areas of the reef and the neighboring ice-cream swirl that is the paradisiacal Whitsundays.
The heart-shaped reef, which has naturally formed into its iconic shape over time, is best viewed from above, but the reef itself also happens to be home to some of the best coral reef formations and marine species in the world.
Unfortunately, the reef is protected so snorkeling and diving here is not permitted, making it all the more special to witness this marine marvel from up high, where you can truly take in its unique and beautiful form.
If you're keen to take a helicopter ride over the reef and would like to incorporate a trip into your Australia itinerary, please speak with your preferred yacht charter broker.
