This was one of the most wonderful things my husband and I have ever done, and we have travelled to more than 50 countries! Our pilot was superb and gave a comprehensive and interesting narration. We flew low all over the Bay Area and right over the city, even flying between the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge, I would highly recommend this trip.
The tour was wonderful. We went there 15 minutes early to complete the paperwork and then boarded the seaplane in few minutes. The pilot was very friendly. The plane can seat 7 people. The take off and landing was in the water and was great. The view from up above 600ft was awesome. We got to see the Golden gate, alacatraz, SF city view. The seaplane flies across the golden gate and alcatraz. We could see the Oakland bay bridge as well. Since the plane flies at lower height, it doesn't matter if it is cloudy, you still get a good view. The staff at the tour company was very courteous. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Excellent trip, would do this again it was so amazing, we had a really calm day and a clear day so made it.
What a wonderful experience! Delightful and professional staff. Elwould highly recommend this experience!!
Wonderful experience! Fantastic flight and very engaging narration by the highly capable pilot.
A great tour, well worth the money. No better way to see the bridge and city, Shuttle service provided takes you right to the plane, pilot know exactly how to get the best views and very informative. In the air for longer than the 30 minutes stated. Very friendly staff, comfortable plane, definately recommend the tour.
What an amazing experience! Flying low over San Francisco Bay was exhilarating, and the aerial views were phenomenal. We saw the Golden Gate Bridge, downtown San Francisco, Alcatraz, and everything in between. The plane was intimate and every seat had a window, which was awesome. I'm a local and have lived in the Bay Area all my life, but haven't done anything like this. I couldn't put my camera down!
Great experience because seaplane is different from a classic plane. Views are really great and I guess the best way (at reasonable cost) to see SF from the sky. Interesting comment from the pilot... and what a wonderful view of the Golden Gate Bridge ! To do.... and to see !
It was perfect! A fenomenal view of the city, a very prepared guide.. great adventure!
Amazing day great views and we managed to get some great photos , a big thanks to our driver and pilot who made this day extra special unforgettable expierience
Franchement à faire si le prix vous le permet. Navette gratuite depuis le Pier "je ne sais plus lequel" qui permet de traverser le Golden Gate Bridge vers Marin. Pilote super sympa et bien sûr pro qui commente le tour efficacement. Baptême hydravion pour ma fille et moi-même, décollage et atterrissage décoiffants. S'approche très près du Golden Gate, survol des alentours, vraiment très chouette
What an amazing view of the whole city. Our pilot really knew the history!
Excellent trip, however the address is not corrected yet in the GPS so we had to move around to find the place ... worth the trip
Pilot/owner adjusted flight time to coincide with the AMERICAS CUP race.
We all enjoyed the flight and race. ( Larry Ellison was jealous.)
I had a little problem trying to get the shuttle time and pick up confirmed but the experience was flawless! I highly recommend this seaplane trip: the pilot was really good and took really good care of us, including making sure we had pics to show off. Loved it!
The tour itself was fantastic with spectacular views. However the place was difficult to find as mapquest takes you to the wrong place. there was confusion over the booking. Seaplane had us down for two people instead of one and for the wrong time. Fortunately they were able to rectify the problem.
Couldn't have asked for better service and coming back to collect us/drop off twice due to bad weather postponing the first attempt was not even a problem. Very friendly people great pilot and a brilliant way to end our trip-- I will be booking us up to do it all again next time we visit SF.
Very very cool! I took this tour with the solo purpose of shooting pictures of the SF Bay area from above. Everybody gets a window. I got great shots. Ground crew are nice, pilot very experienced. I loved the noise canceling headphones with communication with the pilot. I highly recommend this tour.
