    We had an awesome morning with our first helicopter ride and first time at Whitehaven Beach Our pilot Chris was excellent and as I’m not keen on flying if any kind but he made the experience a great one Highly recommend flying with gsl and definitely worth taking a trip to Whitehaven Both Kevin and Jenni our bus drivers to and from the airport were great also (Jenni also gave us the heads up for a feed at Northerlies which we’ve just done now and it too was awesome)

    It was our first time going to the Whitsundays and we sure are glad we went be the helicopter! There were a few changes with the times as they called to let us know that the tides will be high in the slot we booked in. They suggested if we can come in early if we still want to go there in lowtide and the process of it was very smooth! They made sure we have our way to the airport and back and the reception was world-class! The pilot was very friendly and very informative and we felt very safe and secure during the trip. Would definitely book with them again and come back to the beautiful Whitsunday Islands

    Stunning view!

    I was a private tour - only my husband and me were on the flight. Justin, the pilot, was a travel guide with a lot of passion! Whitehaven is a must see! An awesome experience! Walking along the beach and watching this incredible scenery is unbelievable and unforgettable. This heliflight made our day!
