Feel the thrill of flying over the picturesque coral-studded sea before landing on Vlasoff Cay, a pristine and secluded island. Here, you will enjoy a gourmet picnic hamper and sparkling wine amongst the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkel straight off the beach after your picnic in paradise.
An exclusive experience, on your own piece of paradise. Feel the thrill of flying over the picturesque coral-studded sea before landing on Vlasoff Cay - a pristine sand cay in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Relax on the pure white sand, beach comb for treasures, lay in the shallow crystal waters or snorkel straight off the cay and discover the magic of the underwater world. The experience is complete with gourmet picnic hamper and sparkling wine and helicopter return to Cairns.
This experience is 3 hours in duration, consisting of 2 hours on the cay and approximately 40 minute scenic flight time.
Please note, Vlasoff and Undine Sand Cay are public sand cays that cannot be reserved. While no refunds apply if occupied on arrival, alternative arrangements are discussed and confirmed at booking.
This experience is for two people.
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider
It is recommended you bring swimmers, a towel, sunscreen and a hat.
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.
This experience takes place on Vlasoff Sand Cay on the Great Barrier Reef. The helicopter departs from Cairns QLD.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
