We were going to one of the islands for a family vacation. the choices were ferry (3.5 hours) or seaplane or helicopter (both about 20 minutes). The helicopter was the choice for us - fantastic views, immersive experience with the sounds of the helicopter, headsets so you could speak to each other and the very friendly pilot, and just incredible views 1,000 feet about the sea, reefs and islands. 5 adults and 1 baby, all too easy. The service was truly top notch. We were met at the arrivals hall, bags and everything loaded into the courtesy minibus and driven over to the Island Hopper departure lounge. A quick weigh-in of each of us and each bag, safety lecture and all sorted. Be warned, there are weight limits - 15kg per checked luggage and 10kg per carry on back-pack. Extra bags or over weight can be sent on the next helo or on the ferry for a charge ($10/kg) but 25kg a person is a lot so you can manger. the costs are about double the ferry costs but well worth it. And the baby is free if under 24 months. If you wanted to have a special trip to anywhere, a secluded island for 2, they can do it. They were very relaxed, professional and accommodating. Great team and great experience.
