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

We chose to fly over the islands rather than to go on a cruise and were not disappointed. As in previous comments, you can only appreciate the landscape from above. Choose the longer flight option as it takes some time to get up into the air. We had a great time and recommend it highly.

Floatplanes are special and Georgian Bay Airways provides an easy opportunity to sample this mode of travel and view the thousands of islands in Lake Huron's Georgian Bay. In the summer they'll even fly you to lunch at the famous Henry's Fish Restaurant on one of the islands.

Amazing flight experience over the wonderful scenery of Georgian Bay. This is the only way to really experience this fantastic location. We did the island cruise as well (also very worthwhile) but to really appreciate the vastness of the bay and the 30,000 islands within it then take one of these flights. All the staff both in the office and... More

I would highly recommend Geo Bay Airways to anyone wanting a unique Canadian experience. This local airline services a special part of Georgian Bay few people are fortunate enough to see. Booking was simple after contacting the office (and the office staff were organized and informative) The pilot went out of her way to ensure we saw the area we... More

The best attraction of the Georgian Bay. The flight over the Lake and thousands islands is spectacular and gives a lot of emotions during water take off and landing. The staff is young and nice and you feel absolutely safe. It`s worth many we paid.
