ABOUT AIR WHITSUNDAY
Air Whitsunday has evolved since its conception back in 1973 - with the energy and enthusiasm generated by Kevin and Sue Bowe – to provide an unsurpassed seaplane service to the region.
We have built upon our very beginning`s – still with the same intention - of providing you the opportunity to glimpse the enormity of the Great Barrier Reef; stretching over a curved horizon; to the glistening white silica sands of the famous Whitehaven Beach - all from the ultimate perspective of seaplane comfort.

Over the history of our 37 years trading we have been a growing, changing entity with a focus that has remained steadfast in providing specifically tailored scenic flights and Reef experience tours that take full advantage of this stunning area.

The discovery of “Heart Reef” in 1975 (now a Whitsunday feature of the international tourism market) by one of Air Whitsunday`s very own pilots has provided a focal point to our popular scenic flights and showcases the diversity of the Great Barrier Reef. Aptly the Heart Reef is a favourite for brochure shots and other colour promotional material for the Whitsundays.

What makes your seaplane experience with us so unique is the ability to provide – YOU – our guest,  with some of the most breathtaking and memorable visuals provided by ‘Mother Nature’ from a bird`s eye perspective.
