Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This short flight gets you away from the crowds for aerial views of the top sights and scenery.
After boarding your seaplane, your pilot takes off and soars over sandstone cliffs that jut up from the ocean. You then turn south toward Bondi Beach and fly low enough to make out surfers bobbing on the ocean, waiting for the right wave. Get great photo ops of the golden expanse of beach, then up into Sydney Harbour where you climb to 1,000 feet (305 meters) for an overview of the harbor city. Make a circuit over iconic spots including Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison and the Royal Botanic Gardens and keep your camera handy to capture stunning photos from this aerial perspective.
As you head back to Rose Bay, your pilot points out exclusive waterfront mansions that line the bay. After a gentle landing on the water, return to land to end your memorable seaplane flight.
Upgrade your tour by choosing to include an a la carte 3-course lunch at Catalina Restaurant in Rose Bay. Enjoy unobstructed views of Sydney Harbour from the open-air patio or dining room. The menu features fresh seafood and Australian wine among other delectable items. It’s a great way to celebrate after your scenic flight over Sydney.

Had a fabulous experience in the sea plane. Finding it was easy and check in was quick and the guy was very friendly. I got to sit in the front with the pilot which was amazing and as there was only 4 of us in the sea plane my husband got the back seat to himself so could see out of the windows both sides. The views were amazing and the whole experience was magical. We would definitely do this again and would recommend to all to do it at least once in your lifetime.

Surprise flight for husband and son. Both enjoyed flight but, commentary about places and area would have been helpful.

A fabulous experience - taking off from Rose Bay where the old empire flying boats used to be based back in the 30s. The flight took in the harbour, Bondi Beach and of course the bridge and opera house. Very enjoyable just wish the flight had been even longer!

Amazing, highly recommend. I am scared of flying but pilot took me totally at ease. Best way to see Sydney especially if you only have a short time.

It has for years been my ambition to have a flight in a seaplane, and you couldn't pick a better venue than Sydney Harbour. The weather was brilliant and the whole experience lived up to my expectations.
