Worth every penny. Great ending to our vacation.

Very nice company. Pilot was great and had great knowledge of the area. Well worth the money. Easy to find with plenty of parking. Great way to view the Adirondacks.

I have flown with Helm's Aero Service for decades. This is a family-owned float plane service, and they fly to just about anywhere in the Adirondacks you want. Price is related to the air time. Very friendly and professional.

So, while we were up in the Adirondacks again this 4th of July weekend, dad took my to Long Lake for my first seaplane ride. Bob was our pilot and we flew in the blue plane.... More

We took a sightseeing flight in a seaplane piloted by Mr. Helms in Long Lake, NY in the Adirondack Mountains. The views from the plane were spectacular!! The pilot pointed out various landmarks and told us about the area. It was definitely a "high" point of our vacation.
