Cairns helicopter tours

What should I bring on my Cairns helicopter tour?

We recommend you bring sunglasses, sunscreen and a smile on any of our Cairns scenic flights. Of course, feel free to bring your camera, however, we have four HD onboard video cameras to capture your spectacular multi-viewpoint experience.


Can I tailor my Cairns helicopter flight?

Absolutely, we try and accommodate most realistic requests. Please make sure you make your request upon booking your tour.


Is a Great Barrier Reef scenic flight worth it?

For many, a scenic helicopter flight over the Great Barrier Reef is worthy of pole position on their bucket list. Comparatively, only a handful of lucky visitors to the Reef have the opportunity to see its magnificence from above. At Zoom Helicopters, we aim to provide our guests with an incredible and memorable experience.

When is the best time to see whales in Cairns?

July and August are generally the best times to see migrating whales in Cairns. This is due to the cooler water temperatures at that time, and what better way to see a Humpback or Dwarf Minke Whale than from above on your very own Cairns helicopter tour.

What marine life could I see on a Great Barrier Reef scenic flight?

With an abundance of marine life on the Great Barrier Reef, it's likely that you will see some, if not all of the following on your Cairns helicopter tour:

  • sharks

  • dolphins

  • turtles

  • manta rays

  • whales - seasonal

  • dugongs

Contact Zoom Helicopters for up-to-date information on what's being sighted at the moment.
