For last Father's Day, I got my hubby a family voucher for a helicopter ride in Phillip Island. Ours was a small helicopter with the capacity of 4 adults including the pilot. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was an issue with my voucher as I didn't activate it correctly but the staff was kind enough to let us proceed with our flight while he sort out the voucher with the company. Our 8 minutes flight took us around Woolamai Surf Beach (one of the best known surf beaches in the country and its life saving club) and Cape Woolamai (The highest point on the island and home to the Pinnacles and the old Granite Quarry).

Then the flight headed for the San Remo bridge before turning around Newhaven, Churchill Island and back to the airport.

With the right pointer from the pilot, we caught a quick glimpse of two ray fish swimming near San Remo pier. Unfortunately we didn't manage to capture any photograph of them.

Back to base
