Excellent flight. We took the 30 minutes flight - good views, landed in lake, very smooth landing. Pilot was informative and pleasant, and very good at flying. Treat yourself to a trip, you won't be disappointed.

Went with our mother who turned 85 and my sister who turned a big "0" and myself also celebrating a (younger) birthday. We had a great ride on a beautiful day. Our pilot Rob was super kind and showed us all the hidden gems in Lake county. We will be doing this again, great family business! DO IT you WILL... More

This December I spent a few days in Florida on holiday and booked 1 1/2 hours seaplane instruction at Jones Brothers. I completed a seaplane rating up in Canada this summer and thought it would be a good idea to keep current and get some new imputs. Rob, the instructor, was excellent. He was relaxed, informative and I learned a... More

Most exciting thing we have ever done on a trip, well almost the most exciting....went up about 300 -500 feet in small Cessna seaplane over Lake Dora area in Tavares, Florida; the pilot was a young fellow and very skilled and obviously enjoyed flying, his Dad works for Delta airlines. We got great views of the lakes, the town, the... More

We had a very good time flying with these guys: very professional and great experience. They have a choice of aircraft to fly and we have decided to take Cessna 180 - quite big and comfortable plane for a couple and a pilot. I would strongly recommend to challenge yourself with flying over the Florida lakes - it is so... More

Whilst on holiday in Florida we drove through Tavares on the way to Mount Dora. We stopped to see the steam Train and enjoyed a walk to the lakefront where we stumbled on the seaplanes. What a very pleasant idea to take one of the flights offered by Jones Brothers. Rob was our pilot who was very informative. We flew... More

My daughter handed me her preprogrammed GPS and my son and I went to claim in search of our surprise. We ended up at the seaplane ramp and after a very quick preflight loaded up for a flight over Lake Griffin. The pilot took us northeast towards Lake Yale and then across the mouth of the Oklawaha River. My son... More

As a birthday gift to my husband, my daughter and I surprised him with a planned seaplane flight. We flew on a crystal clear Florida day, and we could see so much! The world looks so different from above than on the roads. We saw familiar places from the sky this time. It was so enjoyable! I felt like the... More

We spent a very enjoyable weekend in and around Mount Dora. Our flight with Jones Brothers was the highlight of our trip. We chose the Splash and Dash tour. Every part of the experience was first-class. The woman that handles the reservations was very friendly and explained our flight options clearly. Our pilot, Rob, was courteous, friendly and professional. The... More

My wife gave me a flight around Lake Dora for my birthday. She's afraid of heights but still went with me (now that's devotion). Our pilot, Rob, was totally awesome! He flew us over gators, the Howey Mansion, Lake Harris, Mount Dora, and did a "splash and dash" where you skid across the water with the plane but then keep... More
