On the Day

Session Length

This experience is 3 hours in duration, consisting of 2 hours on the cay and approximately 40 minute scenic flight time.

Numbers on the Day

This is a private helicopter charter, just for the two of you.

Weather

In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider

Dress Code

It is recommended you bring swimmers, a towel, sunscreen and a hat.

Other Info

There is an EPA ruling that prevents any helicopter company from landing on the sand cay if it is already occupied. Exclusivity cannot be guaranteed by any operator as the cay is open to boats and the public. If by chance another operator or members of the public are already there, we would then take an extra scenic flight to Turtle Beach, which is a lovely beach south of Cairns.
