The plane ride lasts about 50 mins...goes up about 300feet plus, and you get great birdseye views of Tavares and the Everglades; Not for the faint-hearted --the plane is small, not insulated, and you are given headset to listen to pilot due to noisy engine; it was my first time in a seaplane so I just loved it.

Several different trips available. From a short ride around the Lake Dora area to flights north over many lakes & rivers including splashdowns or south towards the Disney area. Great sightseeing, great pilots. A great way to see the central Florida area. Don't forget your camera.

We received a gift certificate for a 20 minute seaplane ride and wish we had been up in the air longer. It was a beautiful day and the flight took us directly over Lake Harris, Lake Beauclair, Lake Carlton and Lake Dora. The earphones helped us all hear what the pilot was saying as well as each other, although one... More

Fly-in from Tavares to and back from island by seaplane was very cool. Great view of a very green Florida. Unusual winds where Homasassa & Crystal Rivers meet Gulf slowed our fishing down but we still caught big redfish, sea trout, mangrove snapper. Ate well and brought some home to Omaha! Unique catches: grouper and flounder. Saw rays and manatees.... More

The rides are fun and entertaining for people with an interest in airplanes, It can get expensive if you stay in the for very long but they offer cheaper shorter trips, very nice people and I had a good experience.

I booked a private flight for our 1st wedding anniversary. From my first initial contact with the staff to the end of the flight was all perfect . I decided to surprise my wife with the "romantic dinner" to the #Hillstone in Winter Park. Our pilot updated me throughout the day to pick a perfect departure time due to the... More

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
