Landing is so smooth!

This was a wonderful experience! The views of Seattle were incredible even though it was slightly overcast it didn't even matter. We were the only ones on the plane which was nice. Very friendly staff. I highly recommend to anyone visiting or anyone living in Seattle.
Kenmore Air creates a wonderful way to experience Seattle!

The seaplane experience of viewing the city is really spectacular. Kenmore Air is the vendor for Viator, and is well organized, and very hospitable. Our pilot made us feel safe and gave us a great landing. I strongly recommend having this experience to get the pig picture of Seattle.
A Beautiful Day To Fly

This seaplane ride was excellent and exciting. My pilot was very informative and the views up above seeing down on Seattle was amazing and clear. I would definitely do this again next time I visit Seattle. You definitely should try it, you won`t regret it.

A GREAT Memory!

I took my Mom on a quick trip to Seattle. First time for both of us. Friday to Sunday. From Virginia. And, I’m 51, for perspective. This was the highlight of an extraordinary trip! The facility, plane, pilot, and memories are worth the 6 hour, trans-continental flight! Do it!
Great Tour

The staff was very friendly. The plane was clean and comfortable. The flight path gave great views of all the highlights of the city, and the recording in the headset was very informative. We got lucky and had amazing weather also.
Do it!

Wow! This was so much more than we expected. Great flight and commentary, flew around the lakes and past the Space Needle. We had a rare clear evening too. I just cannot recommend this enough. It really was the trip of a lifetime.

This was an amazing experience. Every seat is a window seat and they even let one lucky person sit in the co-pilot seat! The takeoff and landing were amazingly smooth. The views were awesome as well. Such a great way to see Seattle from a new perspective.
