“Wet Season waterfalls flight”
Reviewed February 24, 2017 via mobile

Just completed our 2 hour flight over Kakadu and Arnhem Land with Charlie and Kakadu Air. A great experience for the start of this Wet Season to the Top End. Charlie was very competent, friendly and informative, making sure we got the best possible views of the many features we were flying over. The waterfalls are in full spate now, in one of the best Wets for years, and the wetlands stretch for kilometers in every direction. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend to anyone travelling to Kakadu that a flight with The Scenic Flight Company Kakadu is an ABSOLUTE MUST!! This was our second flight, the first was in the dry season, completely different scenery to the wet season, both totally breathtaking - it was like seeing two different places!! This company was brilliant the first time so didn’t hesitate to fly with them again, my husband is a little nervous on small planes but both times the pilots were able to put him completely at ease and enjoy every minute. Our pilot this time was Charlie, who was not only extremely professional, he was so knowledgeable about the area, and his personal commentary was delightfully entertaining.
We couldn’t recommend this company and trip enough – spectacular both times, the best way to see Kakadu!!

1 hour scenic flight is a great flight to do in the wet season as the falls are spectacular. You will need to be flexible with flight times to fit in with the weather but it is worth the wait. Pilot Charlie was great and very informative.

“Totally recommended”
Reviewed January 13, 2017 via mobile

Highly recommended!! Pilots name was Charlie who we also can't speak highly enough of. Very informative, polite, and made the whole fantastic experience an absolute pleasure. The 4 seater plane including Charlie makes the trip intimate and a delight to be part of. Has to be experienced.

“Fantastic ”
Reviewed December 28, 2016 via mobile

It was well worth it. We flew past a storm which I thought was going to ruin our flight but we missed it thank goodness. Views of the waterfalls and landscapes were spectacular. We got some great photos and were unable to see Jim Jim and Twin Falls any other way as early rains had flooded the roads and they were completely inaccessible. Pilots were great. I would seriously take travel sickness pills, I felt so ill. Maybe early morning flights are better as the ground is cooler and less convection.
