What a wonderful experience by seaplane to cottage point for lunch. Steve our pilot was a great guy, pointing out the wonderful sites of the coast. It was a very smooth ride up and back. We were a group of 4 adults. I loved it a and would do it again.

My wife and I spent a couple days in Australia recently. Visiting this magnificent country has been on our list of things to do for a long, long time. One of the things we did was take the seaplane ride with the visit out to Cottage Point. This experience is just amazing every step of the way. The flight out... More

Did the trip up to Palm Beach today with two adults and children aged 9 and 7. Great experience, the whole family loved it. Wonderful way to see a different area, and breathtaking views there and back. Easy and efficient organisation. Hard to fault really.

Went on the seaplane to Cottage Point Inn on Christmas Eve. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The views from the plane were stunning and Steve the pilot was very competent and good company. Had a table on the deck for lunch at the restaurant and the food was delicious. Amazing experience !

We got the weather great, dropping in to the Cottage Point Inn for a long, boozy lunch. Steve the pilot was great, really reassuring as we taxi'ed and flew (sometimes quite close to the ridgelines and trees!!). The views of the northern beaches are superb, I don't think you could ask for better, and the speed allows you to get... More

Seeing Sydney by Seaplane is the best way to see all of Sydney and gives you a really good sense of the geography and landscape of this beautiful city. We liked Sydney by Seaplane because it is owner operated and had the best safety record compared to the other companies. We loved our pilot who had a fun sense of... More

We took the seaplane to Cottage Point where we had dinner and stayed the night. Next day we were picked up around lunch time and taken back to Sydney via Palm Beach. The way back was a bit windy which made it quite exciting especially the landing! Wonderful views of Sydney Harbour and the best part of our Sydney holiday.
