Taking a helicopter ride of the GBR is a MUST DO. We took the ride from the Cruise Whitsundays Boat and man it was worth every penny. We took the 20 minute ride and it was well worth it. So amazing to experience the GBR...More

I would not recommend this tour if you like a smaller group setting. The boat is huge and can accommodate a lot of passengers which means you are unnecessarily out there for too long waiting for everyone to get a turn. Because it’s so large...More

When you book the Whitehaven beach getaway, it's $330 per person with a minimum of 2 people. They might try to book maximum 2 other guests. Or you might want to pay $660 just for your self.
