This is by far the best way to see our Gulf Coast outer islands while at the same time seeing a variety of sea creatures. On this flight we saw manatees, dolphins, stingrays, sharks and Tarpons. Low, & slow unlike any other type of aircraft. Barefoot and soaring, as close as you’ll ever have to the view of a bird.... More

Definitely a must do if you're around the gulf! It was the most excitement I had all week. This is way better than parasailing!

This was a priceless experience for me from beginning to end. I highly recommend this activity for anyone who travels to the Clearwater area. My only regret about the entire flight adventure was that it only lasted for one hour.

The owner/pilot was extremely knowledgeable about the aircraft and quickly answered my many questions. He explained the process beforehand and told me what to expect and what to not be concerned with. Just a overall professional operation. The view was amazing and the open cockpit was sweet.

I fully recommend this attraction to anyone. Very beautiful scenery of clearwater beach and nearby islands. Saw a few dolphins, manatees, sharks, and stingrays in the water which was cool. The pilot was extremely friendly and cooperative which made the trip that much more perfect. He lets you take free pictures in the vehicle and you can buy a video... More

Aerial views from about 1000 feet - take off from a small airfield - 10-20 minutes from any beach resort in Clearwater, fl. Pilot, Dane, is a small plane instructor - very personable - my 12 yr old son and my wife flew as well - three rides - reasonably priced at $130 a piece.

If you don't do anything else in Clearwater- do this! Dane was awesome! We saw sharks, manatees, sea turtles, dolphins and several fish. This is way better than parasailing! Don't leave Clearwater without visiting Dane and going sky surfing!

My wife gave this to me as a gift as she always knew I wanted to experience something like this. The flight was just so spectacular, from take off, to the panoramic views, Dane made the whole flight a great time flying experience. I made a special request to fly over pier 60 so my grandkids could see me fly... More

My wife and I both really enjoyed the experience of flying with unobstructed views and seeing the sites Dane pointed out below. We both felt very at ease with his professionalism and experience. We were most impressed with his ability to communicate both about the flight and what to expect as well as just basic in flight conversation. Never an... More
