  • 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.
  • Bookings are not confirmed until exact body weights + carry on baggage of each passenger is advised. Passengers are allowed a weight variance of up to 10% over original recorded weight. Any passenger who weighs over 136kg (299lb) may need to purchase an additional seat.
