Ultimate Sand Cay Experience #USC30

A once in a lifetime experience. Marvel at the incredible spectacle of the Great Barrier Reef from the air, then snorkel amongst the beautiful corals below the azure waters. Sip champagne whilst soaking up the sun on the pristine white sands.
Highlights include: Green Island, Arlington Reef, Vlasoff Reef, Middle Cay, Upolu Reef and Cairns.

This trip departs Cairns. Return transfers available from Port Douglas: $70 per person.

Note: Sand Cay landing is subject to sand cay availability;
Vlasoff Cay is a public sand cay and a very popular spot, especially during the weekends and holiday periods.

If there is another helicopter, boat or people on the cay we cannot land.

A landing on the cay is not possible with tides exceeding 2.2m and thus subject to tides on the day.

Leaving early gives us the best chance of the sand cay being unoccupied, but we cannot guarantee a landing.

It’s also a beautiful time of the day to be on the reef and wind speeds are generally lower in the early morning.

In the event the sand cay is occupied, we fly to an alternative secluded beach nearby.
