Reef & Island Scenic Flight with GSL AIR04:55 PM on Tue 22 Jan 2013

Reef & Island Scenic Flight with GSL AIR in the Whitsunday.

After being picked up in the groovy GSL AIR coach (free courtesy bus when you book a flight) we were whisked off to the Whitsunday Airport. After a meet’n’greet and a bit of safety info we were racing down the runway in our awesome little plane with the owner/pilot Trent at my side. I was lucky enough to get the “shotgun” front seat so I could see out the windows in all directions!!

First we flew over Long & Hamilton Island’s with Daydream in clear view to our left. Next minute we were already at Whitsunday Island with the famous Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet right below us. We flew the length of Whitehaven Beach twice to give both sides of our 8 seater plane an excellent view. We continued over Boarder Island and a few other islands on the 10 minute flight to the outer Great Barrier Reef.

The outer reef from the air is the most spectacular sight I have ever seen… If you keep your eyes peeled you may see a turtle or 2!! Trent mentioned between June & October they see a lot of whales on their migration. The color and shapes the coral make are out of this world - it’s hard to explain!! Heart Reef is another highlight of this spectacular flight which we flew over twice once again so both sides of the plane received a great view of it. We touched down safely 1 hour after our departure and what an hour it was!!

Come and talk to me at the Base Airlie Beach Resort Travel Desk, I will help you book this amazing trip with GSL AIR based in Airlie Beach, a different way to discover the Whitsundays and definitely an unforgettable experience.
