We had booked helicopters ride with reef Our helicopter ride was canceled. We are chasing money back but no answer.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Hi Sandee, We are sorry that your helicopter was cancelled. Helicopters are weather permitting and this is listed in the tour descriptions and terms and conditions when booking, unfortunately, this is something that is out of our control. We most certainly would have refunded this for you as soon as we could. We operate every day in the office. If you booked through a third-party agent, this could be the reason it may have taken some time as they have your money and not us so they need to action the refund. This is also in the Terms and Conditions when booking. We hope you enjoyed your time in Cairns otherwise and we hope that you have a better reef experience next time.

Flight was cancelled on the day due to lack of interest which was disappointing but I got a refund. Contingent plan was doing extra dives which were great. The crew was friendly, knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend and go again!

Sorry to see that your scenic flight portion of the tour was cancelled! One of the effects we seem to be having lately with a much lower number of customers... Glad you were still able to make the most of your day though by doing some extra diving! That's wonderful! If you do manage to join us again we definitely hope you get to do your scenic flight!

Ok experience. Helicopter ride was the highlight
Kate_M
, Jun 2021
The helicopter ride was the most amazing experience. I was a little dissatisfied with the lake of information provided about the reef and the changes over time with both the coral and marine life. The fact that you had to pay extra for this information was very disappointing. I have been on much better tours to the reef and had a better experience. I was also great shocked that no information about not touching or standing on the coral whilst out on the reef was given and having other breaking the coral was very unsatisfactory for a reef that is endangered.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Hi Kate, Oh we are sorry to hear this! We most definitely go through protecting the reef in our safety briefing, especially not to touch or stand on the coral. We also have this displayed on our TV screens all day as a reminder. Although our marine biologist tour is an additional cost it is only $25 per person for a marine biologist presentation and snorkelling guide around the reef. In saying that, any of our crew are more than happy to have a chat about any questions you may have about the reef. We have 1 of 19 Master Reef Guides on board. Master Reef Guides are recognised as the world’s leading reef guides, interpreters and storytellers sharing the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. On your next trip out, please do not hesitate to reach out to our crew if you have any questions whatsoever! They would be more than happy to have a chat with you :) We are happy to hear you enjoyed your helicopter experience, it truly is amazing! Thanks again Kate. - Steph

Snorkeling excellent in both locations for different reason. The helicopter ride short but added perspective. Staff were excellent, fun and nothing was too much to ask

Down Under is a Super friendly and fun team, was very well organised itinerary! The day was rainy and cloudy so the helicopter part was cancelled but alternatives and refunds were discussed and arranged right there and then. My whole family had a great day! Especially my eldest who is 2yo and snorkelled for the first time!
