Buckle up for some seriously jaw dropping scenery when you book a Heartland Helicopter scenic flight, over Weipa and its surrounding areas. This is definitely the best way to see the Red Cliffs south of Weipa, which drop down to azure blue seas, fringed with white sand. Our skilled pilots are licensed and experienced at low level flying, which offers the chance to observe local wildlife in their natural habitat. It’s not unusual for us to see crocodiles, but we’ve also spotted Manta Rays and more. For your convenience we’ve got 6 Weipa helicopter scenic flight options, which range from 10 minutes to 1 hour.
Our Weipa helicopter scenic flights are usually provided in our Robinson R44 Clipper II, which can accommodate up to 3 passengers. However, we also have a Bell 206L LongRanger which can carry 6 passengers (weight dependent). Please note we need a minimum number of 2 passengers to operate the scenic flights and prices are per person. Additional information on our Weipa helicopter scenic flights is provided below, or you can contact us on 0428 879 586 or 0427 276 657 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
