There’s no more memorable way to get to Jonah’s, one of Sydney’s most sought-after dining establishments, than by seaplane. This sightseeing flight tour combines an indulgent gourmet 3-course lunch with a unique perspective on some of the city’s top sights—including the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and Northern Beaches—and beautiful Pacific Ocean views without the crowds. Sightsee and dine in style!

What to Expect

Meet your pilot in Rose Bay. After a safety briefing, board your private seaplane and then glide up into the air over the sparkling Pacific Ocean.

Fly over Sydney’s Northern Beaches, passing Manly, Dee Why, Newport, and Palm Beach before touching down in Pittwater, where a courtesy vehicle from Jonah’s greets you and takes you to the restaurant for a divine 3-course lunch.

Settle into your table with 180-degree ocean views overlooking Whale Beach, and then choose from a variety of gourmet dishes prepared with local, seasonal produce, meat, and seafood. Enjoy wine from Jonah’s impressive list at your own expense.

After lunch, board the seaplane for your return trip and views of more of the city’s major sights. Avoid the lines and crowds below as you pass over the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge before ending your tour back in Rose Bay.

Spectacular Flight and Delicious Meal
