Fabulous Seaplane flights around Sydney - 15 and 30 minute scenic flights and sensational fly and dine lunch packages to restaurants on the Hawkesbury River and Day Trips and a range of Gourmet Picnics to beautiful Palm Beach. A must-do for all visitors. Professional, highly experienced crew - Australian owned and operated. Flights from Rose Bay in Sydney Harbour and from our northern base at Palm Beach. Call Jenny anytime to make a booking.
