      About this Cairns Tour

      Beginning near Papua, New Guinea, in the north and extending south along the Queensland coast to Bundaberg, just north of Brisbane, the Great Barrier Reef covers approximately 1,300 miles. How can anyone gain an understanding and an appreciation of its magnitude? The best way is in the air.

      Green Island is your launching pad for this adventure. A 17-mile coral cay, this enchanting island is a 45-minute catamaran ride from Cairns and located within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park World Heritage Area. Surrounded by coral reef, the island makes an ideal entryway to your aerial reef discovery.

      All of your senses are heightened as you take off for the sky. Your guided helicopter ride has you gliding smoothly across the sky over the sweeping archipelago of coral reefs below. The aquamarine and turquoise colors of the sea and the reef complement each other and sparkle like jewels. This stunning natural wonder will surely pique your curiosity. Lucky for you, your friendly pilot is at the ready to answer your questions while providing entertaining commentary.

      As you touch back down to earth, you'll feel as though you've come back from another world. One that you had to see to actually believe. Mother Nature has certainly outdone herself.

      The largest living thing in the world

      Just how big is big? Made of 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands, the Great Barrier Reef has been growing for 18 million years and certainly earns the title "great." For a bit of perspective, imagine 70 million football fields lined up in a row. Now that's big! The reef has sparked record-breaking dreams for sports enthusiasts over time. In August 2015, the Guinness World Record was set for the longest journey kite surfing by a team at 736 miles over the course of nine days.
