Strahan Seaplanes and Helicopters
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 January 2015 via mobile

We have both always wanted to fly in a seaplane so took the opportunity to do this in Strahan instead of cruising up the Gordon river. It was a spectacular flight, expensive at $750 for two of us to fly just as a couple. ..it would have been cheaper to share the plane but check the weight limits of your party with the owners.
It was a beautiful area to fly over and a stop off to walk in to see the Sir Johns falls. The only thing missing was an esky with a cold drink as we were parched and this was offered by the opposition who parked their plane at the jetty at the same time!

I did the Franklin-Gordon flight and it was an absolute blast. Professional and friendly staff top off what is an absolute thrill ride of an experience. Special thanks to our pilot Mike.

A much better way to see the area and rivers compared to a long, slow boat ride. Our pilot showed us the highlights of the area and a very thrilling landing into a very narrow, winding gorge. It is a must do for Strahan!

Wow such an awe inspiring ride in a tiny little plane. Felt like we were birds in the sky. Our pilot was funny and a delight to travel with. The Majestic Gordon and Franklin are a sight to behold and such a rare find.
