Book This Trip

The Dive

Do you have a limited amount of time and want to make the most of your short stay in Cairns? Here’s the only way to get out to the outer barrier reef in only a half a day. © Nautilus Aviation Not only that, but you get to combine a breathtaking view of the reef from the air, with a chance to explore underwater on the same day.

You will fly out with Nautilus Aviation to join up with Down Under Dive's boat, Evolution. The 20-minute scenic flight will give you a great look at the reef from above. Aboard Evolution you will join the other guests on board, for a quick lunch before you go out for a snorkel to explore the reef. Then enjoy another scenic flight home via another route to see more of the beautiful Great Barrier Reef.

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.

This jet helicopter is plushed out, with air-conditioning, music, video, and great visibility. Four video cameras record all the views. It makes the trip out to the reef at 200km/hr, and makes the reef and other locations a short hop, compared to the typical 70-90 min. boat trip. For smaller groups they normally use a 4-passenger Bell 206 Jet Ranger helicopter.
