This is something that I have wanted to do for years and this visit I finally did it.
You do the flight at the Rex Lookout which is on the Highway between Cairns and Port Douglas. Approx 15 minutes from Port.

I went with a guy named Greg. He made me feel very safe and has been flying for 20 odd years.

If you plan to do this you should be aware that it can take a few hours. The wind conditions have to be right.

Take a bottle of water and fruit, just in case you have to hang around for awhile waiting for the flight.

It's a fantastic thing to do.

Address: Rex Lookout
Directions: This is on the road between cairns and port Douglas...approx 15 minutes south of Port.
