Worth every dime. Kids loved it and the pilot was really a nice guy. You should check on reservations as they seem quite busy. We were able to get a plane about 2 hours after checking in person with them. I would not want to miss this!

If you like flying and small planes then you must not miss this opportunity to fly with Brooks Seaplane! I was super lucky as I had no reservations, just showed up. And within 15 minutes was in the right seat taking off. Great pilot, pointing out interesting scenery as we flew over the lake and shore. The memory of this... More

The float plane is a classic de Havilland Beaver, a favorite of bush pilots. Grant pointed out the homes of the famous people who have summer homes on the lake, as well as the source rivers (the St. Joseph and the Coeur d'Alene) and the river that is sourced by the lake (the Spokane). New development, which slowed with the... More

We had just arrived at Coeur d'Alene resort - walked out onto the balcony to admire the fabulous view - and Mr. Wonderful (a private pilot) said "Look at that!" A seaplane was coming in for landing out on the lake. We just HAD to go. I found the listing and called Brooks Seaplane Tours and made a reservation for... More

Great value. Safe, clean plane. My 8 year old son & I took the short flight over the lake. It was great. I'm very pleased. The pilot & the staff were very kind. I definitely suggest doing this.

The pilot was friendly and very knowledgeable of the area we were flying over (Coeur d'Alene Lake). I was very surprised how smooth the flight was. I thought we signed up for 40 minutes and the flight was definitely less than that.

This should be one of your top activities when visiting Coeur d' Alene. So much fun, and you can't beat the view! 20 minutes may not seem like a lot of time, but actually it was perfect. Great skills from our pilot; tour guide, flight captain, and boat captain. Try to book on a day that is not too windy... More

My wife & I stayed in Coeur d'Alene during the first week of June. We signed up for this tour. It is well worth the money & I would highly recommend it. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Good scenery & background information on the area. We recommend this trip.

We just happened on to this sea plane and then spoke with the pilot who explained what we would see in the 20 minute flight. Neither of us had been on a float plane so was exciting to try it. That 20 minutes went by very fast!! And I thought $70 was a fair price. he does offer a 40... More
