Last summer I decided to do a seaplane rating in Canada. I eventually chose Georgian Bay Airways. The instruction was first class. The instructors were professional yet relaxed and both the ground and the flight training were thorough and practical. The office staff were friendly and helpful. There are two Cessna 180s used for instruction, great machines to fly. The... More

We emailed before we left the UK, as their website had said they were closed for the season. They responded immediately to say that they were still doing a few trips and that they could fit us in. Unfortunately our chosen date was very windy and so we rebooked to fly on 23rd October 2014 - a wonderfully bright and... More

Take a ride on their seaplane. We didn't book in advance, we just showed up. We had to wait 45 minutes, there are some restaurants across the street so we just had lunch till it was time to go up. The view was amazing!

Highly recommend to view the islands of the Georgian Bay by air. The views are spectacular and it's definitively worth the money. Pilot and other staff were very friendly and professional.

My husband, 87 year old mother-in-law and I had the most amazing experience flying with Keith and Georgian Bay Airways. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated so specially and with such enthusiasm. Our flight began with a complete safety check and emergency procedures - just the right amount of information without being made... More

Being a frequent visitor to Parry Sound and knowing the area, it truly was eye-opening to see the region from the skies above. The 30,000 Islands and the Georgian Bay area that we flew over seemed so much more expansive than what I've come to know by land. The staff at the desk were genuinely friendly and were happy to...

What a great experience. We decided to do a scenic flight at the last minute and GBA was very accommodating. Picked us up on the dock at Cleveland's house and had an amazing flight over lake Rosseau. Kids loved it. Everything was ontime and perfect. We will do it again next summer.

Took a 35 minuite flight with my husband and daughter.so much fun taking off and landing in the water. The view was amazing. Now I know why they call this place 30,000 islands. Everyone should do this at least once. Thank you Nigel and staff for a wonderful and safe experience.

My girlfriend and I went on the Couples Sunset Flight and it was just amazing! The view was just gorgeous of the 30,000 Islands with the Sunset in the Background, just a beautiful sight! It was my first time flying as well, and I was quite surprise how smooth it was. The Staff are friendly and great to talk to.... More
