Great Barrier Reef Scenic Helicopter Flights Cairns – Nautilus Aviation
Scenic Helicopter Flights Cairns – Nautilus Aviation
Hey guys, back from another amazing adventure! The weather has been absolutely amazing recently, considering the monsoon (rainy) season has already started. We have been having fantastic conditions to get outdoors, with amazing sunny days, blue skies and a light sea breeze.
I love flying, so when I was given the opportunity to enjoy a 30 minute scenic helicopter flight over The Great Barrier Reef here in Cairns with Nautilus Aviation, I grabbed it with both hands.
It was about 2 o’clock in the afternoon on an amazing day about 2 weeks ago and we had a full flight with a couple from Brazil, our pilot and of course, me (fatty). Even with my extra weight on board, we were still able to take off! So, just remember that whenever you take a helicopter flight, as in all areas of aviation, they will weigh you so that they can adjust the fuel to weight ratio.
After about 15 minutes on the ground going through the safety procedures, we all jumped into our little ‘rocket ship’, an R44 Helicopter. These little beasts are very maneuverable, and can also bounce around like a car going over pot holes! This all just adds to the excitement of flying around at just over 500 feet above sea level.
Now, we all know that the Great Barrier Reef is BIG, as everybody is always blabbering on about how it can be seen from space. I do have to say that it’s not until you get up there and look down to see the vastness of this amazing living, breathing organism that you start to get an idea of how expansive it actually is.
This natural 7th natural wonder of the world never ceases to amaze me with its beauty and abundance of colors. As the reef stretches out as far as the eye can see, you realize that it’s size can only really be truly appreciated viewed from the air.
So, if its within your budget when you’re here visiting Cairns, I recommend you to definitely see the guys at Nautilus Aviation and let them rock your world with an amazing 30 min Scenic Reef Flight. You won’t be disappointed!
