We booked an afternoon seaplane flight from Stahan to see Cradle mountain for the 1st day of our 3 day stay. The weather was not kind so the flight was postponed for 2 days. Finally on our third and last day , the weather was clear and we were able to take the flight up to see Cradle Mtn. The... More

Great views of the Strahan, Ocean Beach, Hells Gates, Macquarie harbour areas. View dramatic scenery of the wilderness of the Gordon/Franklin River area, and a dramatic Gordon River landing at Sir Johns Falls from Geoff, a great no-dramas pilot. Can't recommend highly enough. My opinion : - If in doubt, Just do it.

After a 1 day delay due to bad weather, our group of 4 persons was able to secure an afternoon seaplane flight from Strahan to Cradle Mtn and Lake St Clair. This is a great way to see a huge area of the mountainous and heavily vegetated south-western Tasmania. The hour flight took off in fine weather and soured over... More

This flight in a small seaplane is one of the most spectacular I have ever made. The four of us climbed aboard our bobbing plane and after a safety briefing from our pilot we took off like a bird across the harbour and flew over the coast, the fish farms, the bush and along to the confluence of the Franklin...

I have tried on two previous occasions to do one of the trips but due to bad weather have missed out. This time patience paid off. Not totally blue skies, rather misty overcast weather. Four on plane with Pilot Geoff. $225 p/p for 80 mins. We had value for money as had to land twice on Gordon river due to... More

Online booking process very smooth and efficient. Helen was very quick with her replies and information. We wanted to do a helicopter flight but this was unavailable on the day so we chose the premier seaplane option. Were asked to be there at 2.30 in time for a 3.00 flight, which we were, having driven that day from Stanley. Unfortunately... More

We had a top flight with pilot Geoff spectacular scenery and informed commentary. It may seem like an expensive option in Strahan, but true value. Be prepared to be weighed and maybe weight listed to another flight depending on fellow passengers. We were happy to fly separately do all worked out, it was the only downfall of our day.

We took a short trip on a sea plane with this company and it was fantastic. Jeff, our pilot, was very kind and friendly. He had a lot of knowledge of the area and answered our many questions with enthusiasm. I highly recommend!

We have both always wanted to fly in a seaplane so took the opportunity to do this in Strahan instead of cruising up the Gordon river. It was a spectacular flight, expensive at $750 for two of us to fly just as a couple. ..it would have been cheaper to share the plane but check the weight limits of your... More
