Helicopter Tours, Port Douglas

See the Great Barrier Reef Guide ›
Port Douglas
Australia
Concierge.com's insider take:

If you're short on time or want a literal overview of North Queensland's two World Heritage Areas, helicopter is the way to go. In an hour-long scenic helitour leaving from Port Douglas, you can pack in a sweeping flight over the Low Isles and Batt and Tongue reefs (hovering to see turtles, rays, and sharks); a stop-off on a pristine coral cay; bird's-eye views of Port Douglas, cane fields, and the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area; and a vertiginous foray into Mossman Gorge. It's reassuring to know, as the rotors roar and you strap in, that Great Barrier Reef Helicopters' 11 pilots have clocked in more than 50,000 flying hours—and counting (61-74-035-9669; www.gbrhelicopters.com.au).
