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

The end of the season runs out to Henry's are a happy/sad time as we love going there, but all good things must eventually end. We are back at it and enjoying every second of it. Thank you for joining us. Cheers Keith More

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

Thank you for understanding our October winds. Sometimes, when they come off Georgian Bay in late Fall, they can pack quite a punch! Berkley is almost a year now and still greets people with her smiling face! She is an amazing addition to the team. I'll update her picture here shortly. Cheers Keith 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.

Isn't Fall in Parry Sound just an amazing experience? As soon as the trees start pulling the sugars out of their leaves the colours just become so breathtakingly vibrant. Thank you for taking the time to see them with us! Cheers Keith 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...
