Great Barrier Reef Scenic Flight

Our fast aircraft will have you over the Reef just minutes after departing Cairns; once over the reef we slow down to give you outstanding views of the Great Barrier before powering up for your return to Cairns. Less time in transit gives you more time over the reef.


Make a booking with your preferred option.

During the flight you will see Green Island, several sand cays, Arlington reef, Upolo reef and most importantly the Outer Barrier Reef. We will have you over the Reef quickly after departing Cairns; we then slow the plane to give you outstanding views of the Outer Barrier before powering up for your return to Cairns. We have very little wasted time in transit from Cairns international to the reef which gives you more time and flexibility for viewing in the safest manner possible. Daintree Air has been conducting flights from Cairns for over 30 years, by using our experience and knowledge you will receive the best possible experience of the Great Barrier Reef by air.
