Couldn't understand a word the pilot was saying (as comments while flying). My language is English. I felt he couldn't wait to get back to base. It seemed a bit boring for him. Not enough viewing both left and right. We were told he would dip both left and right for great views from both sides. Didn't seem to happen.... More

What an incredible surprise birthday trip on a seaplane out to and around the Whitsundays over Heart Reef and landing at Whitehaven beach for champagne and snacks. Very professional and friendly with an interesting commentary. The flight was superb and the sights were stunning. Being in a seaplane was a great once in a lifetime experience. Absolutely recommended.

The best way to experience the magnificent reef is from the air. The water landing & take off from Whitehaven beach was a thrill Only negative is that it is difficult for the pilot to give a good narrative about the wonders of Great Barrier Reef and fly the plane

We did the Panoramic Tour on a blue sky day with a great pilot, Taiki. He first landed off Whitehaven Beach and we swam and walked the beach. Taiki brought a picnic along for everyone and set up umbrellas for us. Then we flew to the Great Barrier Reef, got in a pontoon boat, and snorkeled Hardy Lagoon. It was... More

The tour was great & staff friendly with good commentary..the pilot did his best to make the tour as pleasant as possible,the down side of this tour was the lack of food & locally produced snakes as was advertised...other than that I would thoroughly recommend this tour>

We went on the reef adventure. Fantastic trip left at 8 home by lunch in time for the next adventure. The colours of the reef were beautiful. Well worth it to fly as you get a great perspective of the islands. Thanks Air Whitsunday for sharing this awesome experience.

OMG, this seaplane ride was one of the highlights of my whole trip to Australia.
