🏅 5 Star Helicopter Rides on the Sunshine Coast

Noosa Coastal & Shark Spotting from Noosa to Double Island Point

Overview — An extended Helicopter Ride over Noosa and the Sunshine Coast with an opportunity to spot sharks!

Rated one of the best things to do in Noosa and also the most popular scenic tour amongst our customers, this extended 50 minute helicopter ride brings together the natural wonders of the sunshine coast, Noosa Everglades and Double Island Point, to take you and your family on an unforgettable helicopter adventure.

This helicopter tour is the best way to get a bird’s eye view of everything Noosa has to offer including Noosaville, Noosa Heads, the Noosa Everglades and the natural beauty of the Great Sandy National Park.

The Great Sandy National Park, known as nature's sculpture in the sand, offers unforgettable view of massive dunes, towering cliffs of coloured sands and pristine beaches including the popular Double Island Point — a scenic headland offering mesmerising views and breathtaking scenery

Less than a minute from Double Island Point by helicopter you will discover a set of four volcanic pinnacles called Wolf Rock. A protected site by the Queensland Government, Wolf Rock is home to Manta Rays, Dolphins, Whales, Turtles and, most exciting of all, Grey Nurse Sharks! If they’re swimming around on the day, they’ll be easily seen as you fly overhead in your helicopter.

    Noosa Helicopter Ride

    Having visited Noosa countless times before I’d never seen it from the air. So I arranged a tour to Fraser Island, the Everglades and back along the coast for a surprise gift for my Uncles 80th Birthday. From the very moment we met Morgan (our pilot) we instantly knew it was going to be a great day. What an about legend. His knowledge, passion and humour made the day and experience we will never forget. Flying back along the coastline we saw Sharks, Stingrays, multiple dolphins riding waves and two of the biggest whales I think I’ll ever see in real time in my life roaming free in their natural habitat (check out their Instagram to see it) finishing the tour along Noosa beach/Hastings st was great also then around Sunshine beach for a smooth touch down close to home at their airfield was genuinely one of the best experiences I’m ever likely to have while on holiday up here. I recommend anyone that wants to see the coast line from the air to book it. You absolutely will not regret it. Morgan you’re a brilliant pilot and tour guide. Thank you
