Overview

See Sydney and the Northern Beaches from a historic seaplane that harkens back to the Australia of the 1930s and ‘40s. Your scenic flight takes you north all the way to Palm Beach before returning to Sydney Harbour. Along the coast you can admire famous beaches including Manly, Dee Why, and Whale Beach, then get a bird’s-eye view of Pittwater, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House upon your return. Your pilot provides informative commentary during your flight, for a comprehensive overview of this lovely harbor city.
  • Scenic flight by seaplane over Sydney's northern beaches
  • Unforgettable photo opportunities of Manly, Curl Curl, Avalon, and Palm Beach
  • Aerial photo opportunities of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House
  • Informative commentary from your expert pilot-guide
Seaplanes play an integral role in the aviation and military history of Australia. During your scenic air tour by seaplane, you get the chance to experience this aspect of Australian history for yourself.

After making your own way to Rose Bay, meet your pilot and receive an orientation to the seaplane. Learn some of the history of seaplanes worldwide and in Australia.

Your pilot provides you with a headset that permits 2-way communication during your flight. The high-wing seaplane and large windows offer great sightlines for photo ops.

As you take off over Rose Bay, hear about the sights below you from your pilot. Admire the golden sandstone cliffs and the shimmering Pacific Ocean as you head north towards Palm Beach, which has become known as the setting for the popular Australian soap opera ‘Home and Away.’ Along the way, you also fly over beaches such as Curl Curl, Manly, and Avalon, where you might spot surfers catching waves.

When you soar above Pittwater, note how many boats line the waterways of this favorite spot for boaters of all stripes. Then head back over the city and Sydney Harbour, admiring aerial views of Sydney Heads, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the sails of the iconic Sydney Opera House.

A fabulous trip. The pilot, JD, was a wonderful pilot, host and commentator throughout. We were lucky enough to have other people on the plane who were dropped off, so we had 2 touchdowns and the trip lasted nearly an hour in total. This was a great way to mark my partner's 60th birthday

Really great way to see around Sydney! Commentary provided but basic. We paid as a pair but trip also included 3 others - not discussed in any way when we arrived then suddenly found ourselves landing to drop the other couple. The other lady appeared to be a tour organiser who had the window open all the time so we were freezing - neither her nor our pilot considered the other passengers! Certainly worth seeing Sydney from the air but the organisation leaves room for improvement!
