GBR Helicopters Port Douglas - Sandy Cay Escape

If you’re looking for the ultimate experience, you’ve found it. A sparkling sand Cay - it's an ecological wonder to enjoy. Relax on the squeaky white sand and swim in the clear blue waters before the tide rises to wash away your footprints. Best enjoyed early in the morning, this escape will leave you speechless with its remote beauty. Being so unique, others may be there before us - not to worry, we have another equally beautiful location and you get to enjoy the extended reef flight before landing at your very own tropical beach location.

Valid 1 April till 31 August - Restricted Season due to bird breeding.

*Please note the Sandy Cay is a public cay which cannot be reserved as such. If it is already occupied on the day of travel, either by another aviation operator or passengers from a vessel, due to safety regulations you will not be permitted to land. The alternative beach landing site is Turtle Beach which is an idyllic beach backed by rainforest, but without reef (& therefore not a snorkelling spot), on the mainland just south of Cairns. Early morning departures (around 7:30am) are recommended as this decreases the chance of the cay already being occupied. Weekends, Public and School Holiday's increase the chance of others occupying the cay & are recommended avoiding if possible.
