Want to see the Whitsunday Islands in all their glory from the sky? Why not experience the excitement and amazing bird’s-eye views with the comfort and safety of a Whitsundays helicopter Flight.
Many visitors don’t realise how reasonably priced this incredible experience can be. Shorter scenic flights can start from around $100 to $110 per person and give you the chance to see the Whitsundays in a way the vast majority of visitors miss. Smaller helicopters only require a minimum of two persons, so it really is quite affordable.
The flight tours vary between the different operators, but there are some popular helicopter flights that are common to most of them. Custom tours can also be arranged, and there are options available like being dropped off on a particular island for a picnic or a swim.
