Cairns in a Day Combo - Kuranda Heli Reef


Latest Questions about Cairns in a Day Combo - Kuranda Heli Reef

how good is the helicopter as far as being able to have a good view? How many passangers does it accomodate?
Do we spend some time in Karunda village before taking skyrail?
ow far is heliport from skyrail?
Is it extra to come back by helicopter?


Hi Yolanda, the helicopter is a great way to see an aerial shot of the Great Barrier Reef. It's pretty spectacular from above. The heli used depends on how many passengers there are on the day. They can seat 4 or 6 passengers. Yes, you will spend 1.5 - 2 hours at Kuranda Village before getting on the Skyrail. When you get back to the Skyrail terminal you will be transferred to the heli base and then flown out to the Downunder Dive boat at the reef. You can come back via heli but to be honest I don't recommend doing this as it really limits the time you have at the reef and yes it does cost extra.

Does this Combo includes Train or Cable way to Kuranda?

How much time do we have at the Reef?

Is the Scuba dive Intro and Snorkel included?

Are they guided?

Which reef locations do the cruise visit?


Hi Becky. Yes, the Cairns in a Day Kuranda Combo includes a train ride to Kuranda on the Kuranda Scenic Railway and the Skyrail cableway back. You are then flown out to the reef by helicopter where you'll enjoy 2 hours to snorkel or dive (scuba diving at extra cost) and a delicious bbq lunch before you cruise back to Cairns on board the Osprey V reef boat. You will visit Norman, Saxon or Hastings reef, depending on sea and weather conditions. There is a guided snorkel tour available that is included in the price or if you decide to do the Intro Scuba Dive then you will be supervised closely by a qualified dive instructor.
