“Worth the wait for good weather. A must do!”

Strahan Seaplanes and Helicopters
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 March 2015

I have tried on two previous occasions to do one of the trips but due to bad weather have missed out. This time patience paid off. Not totally blue skies, rather misty overcast weather. Four on plane with Pilot Geoff. $225 p/p for 80 mins. We had value for money as had to land twice on Gordon river due to bad weather. We actually motored in the seaplane so got a cruise as well as flight! Skilled flying along the winding river course gave fantastic low level views. The St John Falls had plenty of water in them. A beautiful spot! A good 2 hour adventure. Thanks Geoff.

Online booking process very smooth and efficient. Helen was very quick with her replies and information. We wanted to do a helicopter flight but this was unavailable on the day so we chose the premier seaplane option. Were asked to be there at 2.30 in time for a 3.00 flight, which we were, having driven that day from Stanley. Unfortunately the 20 minute delay we were advised about upon our arrival turned into an 80 minute delay because the seaplane had been chartered by a film crew. Had we been advised of this lengthy delay earlier we definitely could have put our time to better use. The trip itself was great - we had great weather and Jeff the pilot was obviously a fan of the area. And it was a beautiful flight around Strahan and the Franklin River - enjoyed the river landing and take-off at St John Falls on the Gordon very much. Just a detraction to not have the scheduled booking delay handled in a more professional manner. It was just stretched out for too long without any communication apart from the initial advice of a 20 minute delay.

We had a top flight with pilot Geoff spectacular scenery and informed commentary. It may seem like an expensive option in Strahan, but true value.
Be prepared to be weighed and maybe weight listed to another flight depending on fellow passengers.
We were happy to fly separately do all worked out, it was the only downfall of our day.

We took a short trip on a sea plane with this company and it was fantastic. Jeff, our pilot, was very kind and friendly. He had a lot of knowledge of the area and answered our many questions with enthusiasm. I highly recommend!

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!
