Not a better place in the world to watch floatplanes at the worlds largest and busiest seaplane base! You can walk around the lake, it's a 4 mile walk.

Lot of floatplanes there, you can take floatplane ride from there to various tourist attractions or just half an hour city ride

Very interesting..... watching sea planes taking off and landing. A different way of life than the lower 48 states.

One could sit for hours and watch the float planes come and go. Very good walk around the lake. Well worth a visit.

We only knew a little about the local air services, however through the trolley tour got to see both Lake Spenard and Lake Hood. The range of float planes and flights taking off or retuning was amazing.
