This is by far the safest, exciting and defiantly the most unique way to see the Gold Coast. Your experience begins by meeting your pilot at the prearranged beach, Resort or Marina. Taxiing along scenic waterways and the sensation of taking off from the water is an amazing experience. If you are a nervous flyer it is even better because it is not scary at all and you feel so safe, comfortable and relaxed.
Once airborne the views of Surfers Paradise, Seaworld, the Broadwater with its boats, Resorts and the canal system are just stunning. You then fly along the world famous beaches of Surfers Paradise to Jupiterís Casino and turn inland and fly all the way to Sanctuary Cove via the Sovereign Islands and South Stradbroke Island.
During the season magnificent whales may be spotted together with cavorting dolphins and the occasional shark. The flight takes approximately 20 minutes and you will fly over 80 kilometres and see some of the best coastal scenery in Australia.
My son and I recently took a 20 minute Scenic Seaplane Flight and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I would, and will be, recommending people to do this. I thought it would be enjoyable but it far outweighed my expectations. The pilot, Peter did everything he could to make this a memorable experience.
All flights require a minimum of 2 passengers and a maximum of 5 passengers.
