Flying over the Headlands, the Golden Gate and San Francisco provides a unique experience and a new dimension to the Bay Area. Adding to the fun is taking off and landing on the water. Our pilot was extremely well versed on the area's history and geography and provided a running dialog about what we were seeing. He is a very... More

I have been to San Francisco over a dozen times and I'm mad at myself for not doing this before. Everything else has mostly been said by previous reviewers but I regret only doing the 30 minute trip, which was still absolutely memorable and brilliant. The time just went so quickly, it was amazing. I would recommend and will be... More

This was one of the highlights of my recent 16-day tour of Arizona, Nevada and California. What an experience!! I booked this seaplane ahead of my trip, on which I was accompanied by three of my other travel companions. The views over San Francisco were amazing and there was no fog. We flew over Alcatraz and skirted the Golden Gate... More

I booked the tour through Viator and come to find out that there was a problem. Staff (Ana) notified me early before we travelled to San Fran and worked everything out and gave us several options. The pilot was great and made sure we had an incredible time. The views were awesome I feel its the best way to take... More

On behalf of our group of 4 I'd like to say that the seaplane flight exceeded all our expectations. It was such a great experience to see the sights around San Francisco. Our pilot gave a great running commentary and the flight gave us great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the city, Alcatraz and lots of the surrounding areas.... More

Simply a most memorable experience flying north up the coast and then back over the city of San Francisco and the Bay before landing back in Sausalito. Aaron, pilot, gave a commentary which was just right in terms of information. The old aircraft was a joy to fly in. My wife, who does not enjoy flying normally, was completely at... More

We loved every minute of this tour. We took the 30 min bay tour and honestly can say the views we had were spectacular. Our pilot was knowledgeable with a great sense of humor and even dressed the part with his Hawaiian shirt. Views of the whole bay were incredible and could never have been seen by any other means...
