What You Can Expect

Seattle Seaplane Flight: Waterfront Highlights

Seaplane Tour Over Seattle

Admire Seattle and its surroundings from an aerial perspective on a Seattle seaplane tour. Departing from a base in Renton, located 11 miles (18 km) southeast of downtown Seattle, your 30-minute flight takes off along the Lake Washington shoreline. 

Board the seaplane, which can accommodate two to six passengers, and prepare for an breathtaking tour. Hear live narration from your expert pilot who points out the sights, including the mansions of Microsoft  co-founders Paul Allen and Bill Gates. 

Approaching downtown Seattle, you'll see three sports arenas from above: University of Washington’s Husky Stadium, the Seahawks' CenturyLink Field and Mariner’s Safeco Stadium. Spot the Space Needle piercing the sky — it's quite a sight to see the unmistakeable landmark from above!

Admire the floating homes of Lake Union and learn about the Ballard Locks (formally Hiram M Chittenden Locks), situated at the west end of Salmon Bay on the lake’s Ship Canal. You'll then soar over scenic Puget Sound with the Olympic Mountains in the distance.

Mt Rainier, which towers at an elevation of 14,410 feet (4,392 meters), is certainly the crown jewel of this incredible landscape. Be sure to bring your camera for plenty of photo ops before your Seattle seaplane makes a splash landing back at the starting point.
