Fly to SCIBS 2019

Thinking of an alternative way to get to the boat show in May? Why don’t you and your friends just FLY to the boat show? Gold Coast Helitours’ offer direct helicopter flights from their new heliport at the heart of the Main Beach to Sanctuary Cove. Ideal for corporate attendees or just fun-seekers looking for a stress-free way to visit the premier boating event, your transfer to and from the boat show will take just 6 minutes each way at an altitude of 1000-1500 feet.

Gold Coast Helitours operate several large helicopters that can transport up to 6 passengers, and smaller ones for up to 3 passengers. With a crew of experienced pilots and ground staff operating a fleet of luxury helicopters, the company will be assisting up to 400 return passengers every day of the event.

There is always ample parking available at Marine Mirage and Mariners Cove. Just follow the high-side jetty to the awesome new $20-million Heliport Passenger Terminal, the only floating heliport in Australia, and one of the most high-tech TSA-compliant airports in the world.

Upon arrival, you will be automatically weighed while you self check-in using an iPad terminal. After a 4-minute video briefing, you will immediately depart for Sanctuary Cove, and begin enjoying the view from above. The helicopter flight takes a direct path over the western channel of the Broadwater, above Harbour Town, over Hope Island and onto Sanctuary Cove.

Although there is no need to book and usually no waiting, a booking is strongly advised to avoid being separated from friends on the flight.

The Sanctuary Cove helicopter pad is directly outside the Pavilion entrance. A return booking, with estimate time, will ensure an aircraft is immediately available. It is ok to carry your boat show purchases onboard, but it will definitely not be possible to carry your new boat on the helicopter!
