You will land on a remote coral sand island with all the supplies you'll need for your two-hour island retreat: - a gourmet picnic hamper complete with sparkling wine, snorkeling gear, beach umbrella, picnic blanket and cushions. After two hours in this secluded paradise, you’ll enjoy another reef scenic flight back to your life as you once knew it.

How to book: You can book online via the rates table's "Add to Itinerary" button. Price includes hotel transfers from Cairns and beaches hotels and all environmental levies. A 25% deposit payment is required at the time of booking and the balance can be paid on the day of travel when you check in.

Important Info: Advance bookings are highly recommended and the sandy cays are only exposed at low tide times, so please book in advance to be sure you can do it.
