About Paradise Seaplanes
"A Magical Sunshine Coast Experience!" Take off from the beautiful Maroochy River in our authentic Warbird spyplane and see the world from the perspective of the Dreamtime black swans and be awestruck. This is no ordinary seaplane and no ordinary joy flight. "Willy" is designed for observation - she has more glass than a helicopter, excels at flying low and slow, and is the quietest piston-engined aircraft on the planet! Adventure flights are made for 3 passengers only. Each one is personalised - choose where and which adventure and whether you want a 'doors on' or 'doors off' experience. Every passenger has a window seat, Bose Aviation headsets, is able to interact with the pilot and treated to expert commentary. The Sunshine Coast is the ONLY place in the southern hemisphere where you can enjoy this sustainable experience in this type of aircraft! Do not miss it! Flights start at $149 per person. See our marquee at Maroochy River every Thursday through Monday 9am-3pm.

Easy to book, easy to check in preflight, staff were all super friendly and made it a really enjoyable experience. We are locals of the Sunshine Coast but Shawn the was still able to show us and highlight parts of the landscape we were not aware of. Highly recommend a trip.

Wow! A truly wonderful experience, not to be missed. From the moment of take-off along the Maroochy River to flying at 500 feet above Cotton Tree, Maloolaba and Caloundra, then the exciting landing back on the Maroochy River, every moment was magical. The pilot Sean was friendly and informative, and just oozed confidence. We will be back another day!
