We selected the picnic on palm beach. The whole trip was well organised with everything working like clockwork. The flight was amazing - very smooth and Steve was a great pilot. The views of the northern beaches were stunning - the speed and low flying height were perfect for enjoying the view. In terms of the picnic, it was far... More

Wow. Absolutely amazing. From booking the flight to flying around Sydney - this was definitely an amazing experience. Prices are reasonable, especially given we were the only two people in the plane. We took off from Palm Beach (outside The Boathouse) and flew across the Northern Beaches and around Sydney CBD, returning back to Palm Beach. It was an amazing... More

My wife and I had a seaplane trip for degustation lunch at Berowra waters inn. It was simply wonderful with the most exquisite attention to detail in the delicious food. The best meal I have EVER had simply complemented by arrival on Ha wkesbury river by seaplane! A wonderful experience.

I had the pleasure of trip on Saturday and it couldn't have been better. Steve the owner/pilot is a great cha and provided a commentary as we made our way up the Northern beaches and then back to the harbour and a circle over the bridge and opera house. It really was the highlight of my visit to Sydney and... More

A seaplane flight is always a thrill and this was not the first one we had had. However, from the moment we climbed aboard our Otter aircraft, the owner/pilot, Steve, made is welcome and ran through the safety procedures etc, prior to taxiing down Rose Bay and clearing for takeoff. We had a wonderful flight down Sydney Harbour, through The... More

In Sydney on a five-day visit from New York, we had solicited the advice of a local journalist (friend of a friend) for interesting things to do outside the standard tourist itinerary. Her recommendation and a bit of online research led us to book with Sydney by Seaplane for an excursion to Palm Beach for lunch at Jonah’s Restaurant.  The... More

What a wonderful experience by seaplane to cottage point for lunch. Steve our pilot was a great guy, pointing out the wonderful sites of the coast. It was a very smooth ride up and back. We were a group of 4 adults. I loved it a and would do it again.

One of the things we did was take the seaplane ride with the visit out to Cottage Point. This experience is just amazing every step of the way. The flight out... More

Did the trip up to Palm Beach today with two adults and children aged 9 and 7. Great experience, the whole family loved it. Wonderful way to see a different area, and breathtaking views there and back. Easy and efficient organisation. Hard to fault really.

Went on the seaplane to Cottage Point Inn on Christmas Eve. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The views from the plane were stunning and Steve the pilot was very competent and good company. Had a table on the deck for lunch at the restaurant and the food was delicious. Amazing experience !
