We recently did the scenic Seattle tour from Lake Union. Nice, rustic plane and a great friendly pilot. Commentary was a bit patchy but we were able to see all the sights. Well worth a try!

Awesome 40 minute flight around the Seattle area. Luckily for us the weather was perfect. A must do if in Seattle. Location walkable from Seattle Centre.

This was my first time in a seaplane. I expected it to be bumpy taking off and landing. I have to be honest, I have been on commercial flights that landed on a runway that were WAY bumpier. It was a great flight and I...More

Prompt, professional, fairly priced. Took the 40 minute tour with my daughter and saw the sights. Only downside was the smoke from a fire in Canada obscured our vision a little. I would recommend they provide headsets so there can be decent communication within the...More

The plane is a low seaplane with a step up about 2-3 stairs (short) into the plane. She could sit in front as co-pilot. It's off a main road and a ramp to the area where the plane boards.
