GSL Fly Cruise and Bullet Day

Posted on Oct 30, 2018 by: Lily Mercieca

Two different perspectives of the Whitsunday Islands = two times the fun! The new GSL Fly Cruise combo is an unreal way to experiences the inns and outs of the beautiful Whitsundays Islands and Great Barrier Reef. 

I mean, I knew a birds eye view of the Islands and surrounding reef was going to be good, but this was better than anything I could ever have imagined! Before 10AM I had already seen whales, bait balls, reef sharks, heart reef, Hill Inlet and Whitehaven Beach! And, believe it or not, my day didn't stop there, it kept of getting better and better! 

The flight left from Whitsunday Airport out at Flametree and took us out over Shute Harbour, the Molle group, Whitsunday Passage, Hook Passage, Hill Inlet, and the Great Barrier Reef - including Hardy, Bait and Heart Reef.

I made my way to the Whitsundays to go on a boat trip on board the Atlantic Clipper - a notorious party boat among the backpacking crowd. I read reviews online before choosing my tour and this seemed like the tour for me!
