Important NotesThings you need to know about this tour
To board one of Air Whitsunday’s seaplanes, there are a small number of steps to climb. The aircraft is quite small and narrow as they are designed for scenic flying, so bending down may be required to enter the aircraft. On tours where Whitehaven Beach is a stopover, there is a small step off the aircraft’s float into between knee and ankle-deep water to embark onto the beach. At the Great Barrier Reef, there are also a small number of stairs to disembark the aircraft onto the glass bottom vessel. This can make it quite difficult for guests who are totally wheelchair dependent, however, we do encourage guests to contact our office directly to discuss our most suitable tour options.
As the aircraft is quite small, you cannot bring large baggage on board the aircraft. However, if you are traveling with baggage, please advise staff and you can leave your bags in the secure terminal during your tour.
