On board a fixed-wing plane, you will see up to 140 kilometres of the Outer Barrier as well as many inner islands, reefs and sand isles. Within 10 minutes of departing Cairns the real adventure begins, with your pilot affording you wonderful photo opportunities over Green Island, Oyster Reef, Vlasoff Cay, Upolo Reef, Pixie Reef and Arlington Reef, while you sit back in air-conditioned comfort.
