Escape on a private helicopter ride to the serene and exclusive Valsoff Cay sand island, on the Great Barrier Reef. You can relax on the beach, snorkel off the cay, and enjoy a complimentary picnic and wine before flying back to Cairns.

  • Feel like a superstar on your own private and exclusive island
  • Snorkel and swim at your own leisure right off the cay
  • Feast on a gourmet picnic spread with sparkling wine


Be amazed with an exclusive experience on your very own piece of paradise. This tour is your chance to feel like a celebrity for a day. You will fly in a modern, top-of-the-range aircraft, with an executive-style fit-out, air-conditioning, in-flight audio entertainment systems and leather interiors. Absolute comfort and safety is ensured in any setting or conditions. Departing from Cairns, you will feel the thrill of flying over the picturesque coral-studded sea. The Great Barrier Reef is an astonishing sight from above. You may even spot diverse marine wildlife from above, and whales during the season. After approximately 20 minutes in the air, you will touch down on Vlasoff Cay, a pristine sand cay in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef where you will spend 2 hours at your own leisure. You can relax on the pure white sand, beach comb for treasures, lay in the shallow crystal-clear waters, or snorkel straight off the cay and discover the magic of the underwater world. The experience will be completed with a gourmet picnic hamper, sparkling wine and return helicopter ride back to Cairns. Your friendly and highly trained pilot has a wealth of experience, and their knowledge of the region will ensure your journey is one to remember.
