One-Day Boat/Helicopter Great Barrier Reef Trip
Nautilus Aviation

© Nautilus Aviation

Book This Trip

This trip is aboard AS 350 Eceuriel, a 35 foot Jet Helicopter with a maximum of 6 divers and a Dive Staff of 6. It is for 1 day, and allows 2 dives.

Departure Information
Departure is from Reef Fleet Terminal, next to the Marlin Marina, Cairns at 7:30 AM every day, return time 3:50 PM.

The Dive

This trip combines a great day out on the Great Barrier Reef with a scenic flight home. This is a full day trip, visiting two different reefs, which gives you enough time to snorkel and try scuba diving (at an extra cost). © Down Under Dive Snorkelers will have lots of time to spend in the water, and a semi-submersible boat (payable on the boat) which gives you a closer look at the reef without getting wet. Evolution takes up to 120 passengers out to the reef, typically a fourth of the folks on board are divers, the rest snorkelers.

At the end of the day you will meet up with Nautilus Aviation on the floating helicopter pad on the reef, and from there you will take to the skies to admire the Great Barrier Reef before heading back to Cairns.

The Boat

Depending on the number of passengers Nautiulus Aviation selects the heli they are going to use from the extensive fleet of high tech heli's based here in Cairns.

Down Under Dive operates the boat used on this trip, the Osprey V. This sleek boat can make the trip as or more quickly than any other dive boat, and provides a comfortable ride for up to 120 divers and snorkelers. Itís an air-conditioned 98-footer, and uses a unique computer-controlled set of hull stabilizers to smooth out the ride.
