Enjoy a relaxing morning in Cairns before passengers board on a helicopter for an amazing scenic flight to Reef Magic pontoon. Instead of spending 90 minutes cruising in the coral sea visitors fly to the pontoon in around 30 minutes. Great for guests who might get sea sick along the way. Have the camera ready for some great photos of islands, cays and hopefully turtles, rays and whales.
