    Best Bday Gift Ever!
    Bob_A
    , Nov 2021
    This trip was simply magical! We received it as a gift from friends for our bday and it was the best gift ever. This is the only seaplane authorized to fly at 500ft (most are at 2000ft) so we were w able to see sharks, stingrays, turtles, and coral. But what made the trip special was Captain Tony, who was the most lovable, knowledgeable and skilled pilot and taught us so much about what we were seeing. We will definitely do this again if Captain Tony is flying!!

    One of the coolest experiences EVER
    lauracrenshaw359
    , Sep 2021
    Surprised my wife for our 14th anniversary - Once we parked, we took a boat ride out to the plane (she thought the boat ride itself was the surprise because Tony was a great tour guide!). Got into the plane and raced Tony in his boat as we took off. Our captain, Adriel, was absolutely amazing - we flew at around 200-300 feet on the way to Upper Mayecumbe Key so we could see sea turtles, manatees, sharks (including a hammerhead!). Adriel was such an amazing and entertaining guide … I’ve lived in Florida for most of my life and I learned a lot. I also have only ever seen 2 sea turtles in the wild (even though Boating is a normal occurrence for me) and we saw dozens of them!! Some clusters with babies! The ride itself was very comfortable- I was expecting it to be very hot, but the plane was well vented and breezy the entire time. Adriel took his time getting to the restaurant giving us plenty of opportunity to take in the views. The food and service was great and we were able to enjoy our meal, the view from the beach, and a few cocktails. I was expecting the ride back to be shorter as described by other reviews, but it was almost an hour as Adriel circled some sharks for us to see as well as gave us incredible views of the city. Adriel clearly loves his job and makes the entire experience that much more amazing. 10/10 will do again!! Absolutely worth every penny!

    Adriel is a Native home grown nature lover that is as passionate about sharing his knowledge of South Florida and its 3 great National parks as he is using a seaplane as the perfect platform to do so. Thank you for sharing!

    Flight was good- hot, but good. Restaurant was busy and delays in our orders. Pooled was personable and attentive
    icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
    Thank you for your patronage, sometimes we debate between flying at lower altitudes so our customers can see turtles and other marine life versus higher with cooler temps but much different views. We encourage our guests to express their preference. The Restaurant that day was experiencing a higher than usual volume and we apologize for their delay.

    An absolutely incredible, unforgettable time! Adrial knew so much about the area between Miami and the Keys and made my daughter and I completely comfortable flying on a seaplane for the first time! I cannot stress enough what an amazing experience this was! The customers at the restaurant are quite intrigued when you arrive by plane and many got up and waved bye! We saw so many sharks and a giant sea turtle down below! BOOK IT❤️

    I loved it both my partner and I are in aviation so I booked this for V-day! That being said We felt supper rushed... Fly town to the keys get off quickly eat to fly back... If I would have had an option to pay slightly more to enjoy my self! Also the meal voucher is $50 dollars we understand the listing said this how ever its not obvious within the ticket information.... for 2 people it was almost $900 the meal should have been completely included. Overall I would do this again

    YOLO type trip!
    Alex_M
    , Feb 2021
    A very cool trip to take. I say YOLO (you only live once) type. The views were amazing from the plane. You meet at the dock and a gentleman will drive you 5-10 min out in the water by boat to meet the plane. From there you jump in and take off. About 45 min to you land in the water to pull up to eat at a restaurant. Everyone is looking at you at the restaurant because you pulled up in a plane! The food was good (bar food) and the drinks were cheap. $50 credit is applied so you cover anything over that. I bought a couple of drinks , 2 meals and app and I owed $20 on top. Then come back for another 40 min or so back. On the way back you are flying at 2k ft vs coming down around 1k ft.

    , Mar 2020
    Had a great experience! Our pilot was informative but definitely not “too much” we ate lunch at the drop off, and food and drinks were great! The experience was a surprise for my husband and the man that took us to the plane was really good at keeping it under wraps until we got to the seaplane. Felt really safe and looked after the entire time and just a really good experience overall. Would definitely use them again for another trip, and 100% recommending to everyone i know. Thank you for the trip!!

He made our special day the best it could ever be. Outstanding service, above and beyond. His personality was awesome. I will do this again. Thank you Tony!

    , Aug 2019
    One of the best experiences ever. The views of nature are absolutely incredible including seeing sharks, turtles, manatees, ducks flying in formation below the plane. As well as blue waters, water currents, island formation, rain falling, etc. The perspective of what surrounds us changes when you see it from above. The plane is very stable. The guide (Adrian) very knowledgeable. Only let down was perhaps the spot were we had lunch. It is of good quality but nothing special.

    What an amazing experience... I planned this trip for my wife's birthday and to say she blown away with happiness is an understatement. My wife became the envy of all her friends. From the BEGINNING my first phone call to make to book our tour the agent was kind and incredibly helpful. But what truly made it memorable was the PILATE. He was so knowledgable and his passion for flying and his environment was everywhere. He gave us a tour something that we did not expect. I thought he would just fly us to the island, we would eat and fly us back. Instead he not only gave us headphones and put on relaxing music so that we wouldn't be bothered by the sound of the aircraft, he also gave us an amazing tour.... The restaurant was also exceptional. The food was fresh and beyond delicious. The service at the restaurant was warm and inviting. I can't thank you all enough.... I will absolutely recommend this over and over again. As matter of fact a friend of mine is booking the same tour for their wedding anniversary... I would give this 10 stars if i could... Thank you

    It was windy when we arrived at the airport. Minutes later our plane, a De Havilland Beaver built in 1952, landed on the water. Seaplane keeps the plane in an excellent condition. We flew from Miami to Islamorada and landed in front of the restaurant. The other people were there by boat we came with a seaplane and everyone wanted to take pictures. The trip has fulfilled our expectations to the fullest. We never will forget this adventure. Our thank goes to our pilot Toni. He gave us enough information and we also have enjoyed the quite moments just looking at the sea and some of celebritys villas. We always felt safe, the plane is stable and we like to recommend this trip. Peter and Gaby
