    TripAdvisor Reviews:

    We did the middle option and loved every minute of it. The whole team were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. They couldn't have made the experience any better. If you are on the Sunshine Coast you need to do this, it's even more spectacular without the doors on. (From Trevor B)

    Friendly, helpful and professional staff. Gorgeous little plane. Amazing views of coral, beaches, turtles, dolphins and even two whales. This was a really special experience. (From monkeyboyzmum)
