We were picked up by Cameron who announced he was our pilot. Excellent commentary by Cameron and he made us feel at ease as it was our first flight in a small plane. Only four passengers & views to die for.

Our friends and I had a wonderful experience on this flight. Patrick was a great pilot and did an excellent job of narrating our flight. It is the only way to really see the Kakadu territory and we would recommend Scenic Flight to all.

We really enjoyed our flight with Lyden. He was very informative and knowledgeable. Took great photos of both Twin Falls and Jim Jim Falls. Only the two of us in the plane. Would recommend the experience.
