Heli-Diving
See the Great Barrier Reef from Above and Below!

In the past few years, a great opportunity for divers to see the reef from above and below has emerged; using helicopters to get to and from the Great Barrier Reef.

Heli-diving not only offers a great view of the reef from above, but also replaces a 90-minute boat trip out to the reef with a quick 10-15 minute low altitude scenic flight.

Two dive operators offer Heli-diving:

Down Under Helicopter offers half-day and one-day heli-diving trips, with the option of taking the helicopter one or both ways.

Compass Cruises offers 2 to 5-day heli-dive trips, staying on their large and comfortable live aboard boat, the Reef Encounter.

Points to Consider:

1. For those of you concerned about flying after diving, keep in mind that this is a low altitude flight, usually under 500 feet, an altitude well under most thresholds in the dive tables. Be sure to consult your dive tables as you plan your day of diving and account for the fact that you will be flying.

2. Luggage: Helicopters have limited space and strict weight limits. If you are going for a day bring just what you need. If you have lots of gear, and are doing liveaboard heli diving, Compass Cruises will arrange to take your gear out by boat.
