A group of 8 of us travelled to King Island for a day last week to play golf at Cape Wickham. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Vortex Air service to anyone thinking of organising such a trip. Colin, Saige and Marcus (the pilot) were extremely patient, helpful, prompt and efficient, and contributed to making the whole... More

We recently completed a three day two night trip to Cape Wickam on King Island and Barnbougle. The first day we arrived at Vortex in Moorabbin at 7:30am for a scheduled departure at 8:00am. For no apparent or explained reason we weren't boarded by Vortex till 8:30 and finally departed closer to 9:00am arriving around 10:40am. The day went downhill... More

Just returned from an amazing golfing experience as a part of the inaugural Bass Strait Masters. The combination of flights, fine dining, accomm and four days of "competitive" golf on King Island and Barnbougle was brilliant. Can't rate the service of the Vortex team from Adam (our pilot) through to Col and Saige for looking after all aspects of the... More

Excellent service, friendly staff, nothing too much of a hassle. Mix up on booking way home not enough to detract. Big future for King Island and Vortex I think
