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.

What a great time. Keith is an excellent pilot and host. Even though it was cloudy we still had great views of the area lakes. Our dinner at Bose Buck Camps was great and the dessert was amazing. On our way back a couple of moose were spotted. We wanted to do something completely different and this was well worth... More

Remarkable experience. Whether you're a seasoned small craft flyer or a first timer, riding with Arcadian Seaplanes is an unforgettable endeavor. The roar of take off through the quaint and rustic Rangeley harbor holds your interest, if not your breath, while ascending the northern arboreal treetops. The owner's skill in navigating thermals above mountainous terrain offers a smooth transition through... More

What an awesome trip. We had to wait for the fog to lift but that made the trip all the more amazing. Our pilot Wayne was professional and friendly and made the perfect tour guide pointing out all of the sights as we flew over the most beautiful section of Western Maine. Take offs and landings were smooth as silk... More

The weather was perfect and after dinner Keith flew us around the area as the sun was setting and the mountains and lakes were lighting up with spectacular colors.... More
