When I called to make reservations for our groupon trip I was treated very badly telling me that I had six months to make reservations and he could only give us seaplane ride..no meal. I told him that was not what I paid for he said get a refund very rudely. Not impressed.

Margaret I'm really sorry that you feel that you were poorly treated when you spoke to me the week of September 21st. Our Groupon Fly & Dine vouchers expired on Saturday September 27th for safety reasons. Sunset comes early the last couple weeks of September. It is extremely dangerous to land a seaplane on the water in the dark after... More

We have a gorgeous area up here in Rangeley so why not get up in the sky and see it all at once. Our guests to Rangeley absolutely love Acadian Seaplanes and their service. You can choose to go on a quick tour of the village zone or enjoy a Fly & Dine trip which includes leaving Rangeley Lake, flying... More

Our first time in a helicopter and Keith made us feel very comfortable. The views were amazing. We didn't see the Bull Moose we were looking for, but we saw several cows and a few calves. We found out that I am a better moose spotter than my husband! 😀 Keith shared alot about the area as he pointed out... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful helicopter and seaplane "fly and dine" trip last evening. Keith literally went out of his way to ensure that we had a most memorable experience. We cannot thank both Keith and Sawyer enough for a truly wonderful evening! Highly recommend this great company!!

Rangeley and the surrounding area is fantastically beautiful, and there is no better way to take in the gorgeous scenery than from the air. Acadian Seaplanes offers both seaplane and helicopter tours. Proprietor/Pilot Keith Deschambeault is a great "air tour guide". This summer, I had 2 rides in his seaplane, and 2 in his Robinson R-44 helicopter. I love to... More

We had the most amazing experience with acadian seaplanes! Sawyer was our guide and he was awesome! He made sure our experience was once in a lifetime. He was caring and compassionate to our "nerves" and went out of his way to point out all the beautiful scenery, including the moose!!!! Thanks again for this lifetime experience and memory!

Very nice seaplane tour. Wanted more than the minimum sightseeing tour, but less than the next tour in the brochure: Keith worked it out with us & we had a pleasant tour.

Had a great moose tour with Keith. We went out for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. We found 4 moose. His tour was amazing and beautiful. The plane is comfortable and Keith is a wonderful pilot. Love

If you are short on time and want to make the most out of your trip. Keith can get you there. From growing up in maine to Alaska bush pilot experience back to Maine, his vision of revitalizing seaplane service works. I was picked up and dropped off in Portland, ME. The flight to Rangeley lake saved me hours of... More
