3-Scenic Flights Over Port Douglas

Leave the ground behind and view Port Douglas from the air in a scenic helicopter flight.  A bird’s eye view of this majestic region will leave any trepidation behind as you soar over the dramatic mountain peaks of the Daintree Rainforest  and the poker dotted Great Barrier Reef as it ink blobs its way in the clear azure water below. The feeling of complete and utter freedom as you cruise at a height of around 100-500 ft. (30-152m) is definitely an experience to tick off on any To Do List.

There is no better way to take in the full perspective of two such iconic World Heritage listed destinations such as Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree and Cape Tribulation rainforests than on a scenic helicopter flight and see it from above and then explore these regions from the ground in a four wheel drive tour and a reef tour with some underwater snorkelling and scuba diving. This is what we call a full immersional experience of Port Douglas and Tropical North Queensland Australia.

As you fly over your Port Douglas holiday accommodation “ I can see our hotel room from here” to a wide sweep of the expanse of white sands of Four Mile Beach and out to the Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef this really is exhilaration on a natural high.

There are various methods to get off the ground for a scenic flight in Port Douglas whether by helicopter or microlight aircraft.

Feeling the wind through your hair and being able to smell the salt of the sea and the subtle honey waft of the Melaleuca blossom gives you a feeling of being more ‘one with nature’ on a microlight flight.  With only the low hum of the microlight’s engine, you will truly have the feeling that you are soaring like a bird.  With just you and the pilot it is a singularly awe inspiring unforgettable adventure.

For more than one person a scenic helicopter ride is the way to go. From Port Douglas you can catch a 30 minute, 40 minute or 60 minute jam packed action ride for that ride of a lifetime.  Fly out to the Great Barrier Reef for a day of snorkelling or for a really special treat the romantic couple can even have a private helicopter to take you off to a beautiful waterfall or sand cay secluded spot where they will supply some food and beverages for you.  There’s nothing more exhilarating than sharing the ride of a life-time with the squeals of pleasure of those you love around you.
