The helicopter flight to and from Moore Reef not only offers a VIP entrance and exit, another benefit is the reduced travel time, smoother transfers and birds-eye-views of the Great Barrier Reef showcasing its vast size and beauty including pristine water, many hues of blue and spectacular coral formations.
Cruise aboard a modern high-speed catamaran to the outer Great Barrier Reef platform and enjoy a variety of activities such as glass bottom boat tours and semi-submersible coral viewing tours, underwater observatory, marine life touch tank, snorkelling and a delicious lunch. Lift off on an exhilarating 10 minute helicopter scenic flight, and marvel at the views which can only be seen from above. This is an irresistible photo opportunity and a vision that will stay with you long after you return home. Return to the vessel at the activity platform and relax on your cruise back to the Marina.
