Highlights
    What to Expect
    Before your departure, meet your pilot who will give you a talk on the Abrolhos Islands including the history and information on the fishing industry as it is today.
    Depart Geraldton just after 9am, overflying the beautiful city and track for an extended scenic overfly of the three main groups of the Abrolhos Islands - The Pelseart, Easter and Wallabi groups.
    En route your pilots will point out the pearl farms, the historic church on Basile Island, the brightly colored fisherman's camps, marine life including sharks, manta rays, dolphins and migratory whales(in season) and some of the shipwrecks - The Zeewijk(1727) and the famous Batavia (1629). You will also overfly Webbie Hayes' fort, the oldest European building in Australia.
    After landing at East Wallabi Island it's a short stroll to the picturesque Turtle Bay where you will have morning tea. Your pilot will then take you snorkeling; this environmental measure ensures that you see the best of the marine life and coral reefs but also safeguards the fragile seagrasses and coral.
    After enjoying lunch you will be taken on a guided nature walk with bird watching and wallaby spotting. Your pilot guide will ensure you see all the points of interest including the osprey's nest, sea eagle's nest and the feeding platform, lizards, crabs and spiders.
    Returning to the beach there is time for another swim or beach combing or just relaxing before heading back to the fixed-wing aircraft.
    On departure you will see Long Island (where the Batavia Mutineers were hanged), Beacon Island where many of the mutineers' victims were buried and the Batavia wreck site overflying the Geelvink channel before returning to Geraldton.

    A wonderful flying experience over the Abrolhos islands followed by an enjoyable walking tour with our friendly pilot, Joe. We saw a seal, wallabies and lots of friendly lizards. The weather was perfect - a great day out.

    You would need to talk to the providers of the tours. They may be able to adjust the start time to accommodate you - depending who else is on the tour.
