Hands down this is up there with one of the best experiences I've had. Amazing views, so worth the money. Steve was friendly and professional, I felt safe and comfortable. Perfect amount of time and I would do it again in a heart beat. I couldn't recommend this enough. You have to do it if your in Palm Beach or your missing out!!

Our pilot Steve was excellent. We flew on a beautiful summer day to Cottage Point Inn and had a 5 star lunch and celebrated Valentines Day and then Steve picked us up and we flew over Sydney harbor and saw everything. I thought I booked a private trip but we did have other passengers on the plane. It did not take away from our experience though. I felt very safe and quite joyful during the whole day. Its expensive, but really, this is a once in a lifetime treat and well worth the cost!!

Our son bought us this flight & lunch for our 60th birthdays - it was awesome! The plane and pilot were incredible and our lunch at Jonah’s was world class. This was the highlight of our ‘trip of a life time’ and the best way to see Sydney and surrounding environments.

Sydney by Seaplane are a family owned business, they love their plane and it shows.
I booked a one way flight from Barrenjoey to cottage point at a time outside of normal hours but was completely accomadated looked after.
It was my wedding day
The amazing pilot Steve (their ONLY pilot) helped me into the seaplane in my oversized wedding dress, followed by my 90year old grandfather, and we began our journey. My wedding party was running late to cottage point so I was taken on a scenic flight downtown coast towards Sydney then back up over the national park. It brings out so many good emotions seeing Sydney from above, I almost forgot I was getting married... As we approached cottage point inn, Steve did fly over so I could see my guests waiting And they could see me land. He pulled up to my guests so elegantly then helped me out slowly and waited til I'd walked down the isle. Such an amazing experience. I highly recommend this company. I will 100% be flying with them again.
