We have a cottage near Parry Sound and wanted to do a flight around the area in a float plane; we called to ask if they could pick us up and drop us off at our own dock (boat only access) rather than having to go into town to the shop; owner came on the phone and made arrangements directly...

A spur of the moment decision on a visit to Parry Sound, returning from the near north. The weather was excellent, we had no time constraints, so took the 30 minute tour of the 30,000 islands, with Georgian Bay Airways. Float planes are such fun! Jesse (the pilot), was excellent. The sightseeing wonderful. Office staff were helpful, and explained options... More

Myself and my dad did this. every island had a house on it. It was nice to see 30,000 islands from the sky. well worth doing but on the expensive side.

I have been coming to Parry Sound to visit my sister since 1975 and last tried the seaplane experience many years ago when they used twin Otters. This time it was a single-engined aircraft but the four of us fitted very nicely inside. The weather was terrific and flying at about 1600ft you get a real idea of the size... More
