Had an amazing helicopter flight over the great barrier reef, so beautiful especially the heart reef. Our pilot was friendly and made sure we had enough time at each spot and that those on both sides got a good view. Pricey but worth it.

When you book the Whitehaven beach getaway, it's $330 per person with a minimum of 2 people. They might try to book maximum 2 other guests. Or you might want to pay $660 just for your self.
