Private Cay Helicopter Tour

This is a private tour to a beautiful white sandy cay in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef.

This is the perfect tour for couples after a romantic time, or for anyone who is after a very special moment.

The day starts with the helicopter taking off from the Cairns City where passengers enjoy a beautiful scenary of the Marina, Trinity Inlet and Cairns mountains. Then the journey continues over the Coral Sea where passengers get views of so many gorgeous locations such as Fitzroy Island, Green Island and the Great Barrier Reef. After a 25 minutes flight the helicopter lands on Vlasoff Cay, a deserted white sandy cay, a private location where guests can sit, relax and enjoy that special and peaceful moment.

At the cay one of the crew will open an umbrella and serve a gourmet picnic hamper with sparkling wine and beer. This is a VIP treatment and a memory that will last forever.

After lunch passengers can get in the water and try some snorkelling. The reef is located just off the beach so it is an easy and comfortable snorkelling experience suitable even for those ones not confident in the water.

After 2 hours on this amazing location it is time to board the helicopter again and enjoy another 25 minutes trip back home. Have the camera ready for more beautiful photos.

This is a spectacular tour with memories to last a lifetime.
