I was in town for 3 days, I booked this last minute and I'm so glad I did. Amazing views, great friendly informative pilot. I got to see much more than I expected, the hump back whales were a bonus. Flown in many types of aircraft, flying in the vintage seaplane was a first. This is a lifetime memory make... More

I was only in town for 48hrs on business so wanted some big-hitting tours to see as much as possible during my stay in the city. I love flying anyway and when I found that I could fly in a seaplane and the legendary Dehavilland Beaver at that, I knew it was the best option. I did the coastal tour... More

Flying over the Headlands, the Golden Gate and San Francisco provides a unique experience and a new dimension to the Bay Area. Adding to the fun is taking off and landing on the water. Our pilot was extremely well versed on the area's history and geography and provided a running dialog about what we were seeing. He is a very... More

I have been to San Francisco over a dozen times and I'm mad at myself for not doing this before. Everything else has mostly been said by previous reviewers but I regret only doing the 30 minute trip, which was still absolutely memorable and brilliant. The time just went so quickly, it was amazing. I would recommend and will be... More

This was one of the highlights of my recent 16-day tour of Arizona, Nevada and California. What an experience!! I booked this seaplane ahead of my trip, on which I was accompanied by three of my other travel companions. The views over San Francisco were amazing and there was no fog. We flew over Alcatraz and skirted the Golden Gate... More

On behalf of our group of 4 I'd like to say that the seaplane flight exceeded all our expectations. It was such a great experience to see the sights around San Francisco. Our pilot gave a great running commentary and the flight gave us great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the city, Alcatraz and lots of the surrounding areas.... More
