Heart Reef reviews
Amazing joy flight with Hamilton Island Air to the outer reef. Fabulous scenery and service, great value for money can’t recommend more highly as a must do when visiting Hamilton Island. more »
Definately worth the visit to Heart Reef. The reef is spectacular to see from above. Once in a lifetime opportunity! more »
A well organised trip to The Great Barrier Reef. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The buffet meal at lunch time was brilliant considering it was served 40 miles out at see on a pontoon! If you only do one thing in Queensland, do this!
Absolutely awesome place to visit and take a helicopter ride over. I have never seen anything like this and highly recommend a visit! I did my tour with Cruise Whitsundays and I had a blast. They take you out and give you the chance to dive around the reef or take a flight over the reef like if the pictures and videos I uploaded. Give it a try!
