Where do I start - from booking with Hanna and Alex to flying over Sydney with Nick and Adam the whole day was amazing! Flying from Palm Beach to Rose Bay Nick gave an informative tour of the Northern Beaches with his local knowledge - he was even able to name (almost) all of the Northern Beaches! The new Empire...

Wow, what an experience. Starts off with the beautiful new water front view restaurant. We got there early, and were promptly, politely checked into our flight and handed cute token boarding passes, we ordered smashed avocado for breakfast and coffee, came out quickly and was delicious. Then we did our half an hour scenic flight. The pilot was very friendly... More

Dropped in to see this new venue. Didn't enjoy my chocolate drink and the smoothie my husband ordered was not thick and very disappointing. The best part of our experience was the great view and watching all the seaplanes land and take off.

My wife and I were given a package which included flight and lunch at Jonahs Whale Beach. What a wonderful experience, starting with the very quick and efficient check-in at the new terminal. We settled in with a couple of drinks and readied ourselves for the flight. We flew in "Caledonia" which was a 1961 model Beaver. Noisy but nice!!... More

I did the 30 mn scenic flight, and it was not as amazing as I thought it would be. Nice to do, don't get me wrong, but not amazing for me. The CESSNA is a small white seaplane (not the red one branded Seaplane Sydney), you don't see really well and it is very (very, very) noisy. I didn't hear... More

We were bought the seaplane ride and lunch at Cottage Point as a birthday gift. What a gift. One of the best days ever. The whole experience was great from the newly refurbed base in Rose Bay (get there early to enjoy a coffee or glass of fizzy), the most amazing views up the coast, the charming pilot, the most...

We decided to take a flight to Jonah's on Whale Beach. I booked the flight for the 4 of us on the internet which was super easy. Our flight was booked for 2pm. We arrived at Rose Bay, parked for free (unheard of in Sydney) and 'checked in'. Our flight was delayed a little which was no hardship as we... More

An extraordinarily special event to fly from Rose Bay in a Sea plane up to the Pittwater. Spectacular views during the flight then a selection of mouth watering restaurant options from Jonas to Berowra restaurant. The newly developed seaplane base is a venue worth visiting by itself. Full bar/cafe next to Lyne park is a wonderful way to watch a... More

wished this had never ended. So calm and beautiful soaring over and around the harbour and beaches, at a height where you could see plenty and take great photos. Love it. The base also has a café and small museum on the history of seaplanes in Sydney.
