Discover one of the great natural wonders of the world with a helicopter scenic flight and Sunlover Reef Cruises! Approximately 40km from Cairns, enjoy a day on board a new multi-level pontoon at Moore Reef, complete with sundeck and the only theme-park style water slide on the reef.

This tour allows you to enjoy the Great Barrier Reef from the sky, and to explore the beautiful marine life once you arrive at the Pontoon by snorkelling, going on the semi-submarine. You can also laze out on the pontoon while eating tropical buffet lunch.

From the helicopter: Sightings of manta rays, turtles and other marine life are not uncommon and if flying with us in the winter months, there is even a chance of spotting whales.

Treat yourself to an amazing day at the Great Barrier Reef.
