Session Length

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

Restrictions

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.

Guidelines

  • Participants must be over the age of 18 to consume alcohol during this experience
  • Due to World Heritage permit restrictions, the helicopter is unable to land if the cay is occupied. In this event, an alternate private beach location will be provided.
  • Weight Policy: Individual passenger weights and accompanying carry-on luggage MUST be advised at time of booking. Weight variances greater than 10% may incur an additional fee. Maximum single seat payload of 130kg. For passenger comfort and aircraft weight and balance, passengers exceeding 130kg are required to purchase an additional seat at 50% of ticket price.

Cancellation

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.

Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to their policy.

  • Tour Cancellation: Tours and aircraft substitutions are subject to Management and/or pilot discretion, weather, air-traffic control and availability
  • Cancellation notice of 48 hours is required for a full refund claim and 24-48 hours, for a 50% refund claim. No refund applies if booking is cancelled inside 24 hours
  • Weight Policy: Individual passenger weights and accompanying carry-on luggage MUST be advised at time of booking. Weight variances greater than 10% may incur an additional fee.
