This is an experience of a lifetime. I will never forget it. Our pilot was very informative, the country side magnificent and the crocodiles were out in force. Great to see the area from the air and the helicopter meant we could "zoom in". A must do.

From our initial discussions over the phone and to the day we arrived for our flight, Simon and Steve were very accomodating. The helicopter flight was as breathtaking as you can imagine a helicopter flight would be over Kakadu National Park.

Amazing trip, if you are going to do a scenic flight in the Kakadu National Park and have a bit of money (not cheap) then a heli flight is the way to go. David the pilot was very professional and extremely knowledgeable of the area and took time to answer all our questions. Simon helped us booked the flight and... More

Located only a short 10-15 minute drive from Jabiru turning right at the Arnhem Hwy intersection. We did an extended flight over Kakadu and views into Arnhemland. Although not cheap but considering the running costs of a Helicopter per hour, it is, the ultimate experience in viewing and certainly better than from an airplane. Photo opportunities abound. Spend the money... More

My wife and I recently had a flight over Kakadu with Simon. Though it is not inexpensive it was well worth it. We went on the last flight of the day and saw Kakadu in all its glory. Very helpful advice. Very attentive service. Very safe. I couldn't recommend it more highly. Do it. It's worth it
