A huge thanks to the professional crew and pilot for such a wonderful ballooning experience. We all had such a great time, more than what we would ever expected.

Best tour I've done on the reef. We saw turtles while on the semi-submersible boat, saw clownfish while snorkelling, and saw the largest crocodile in captivity at the small wildlife centre on the island. You can walk through the forest to find hidden beaches on the island.

Great start for a day! Very organised from pick up to drop off. Felt very secure and enjoyed stunning view of down under.

A great time had by all. We had our family in town and we now have some terrific memories we will never forget. The Hot Air crew were all great. The boat rides out to Green Island after was smooth and we enjoyed snorkeling with all the fish over there.
