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

Talk about checking off an item on your Bucket List! We had a wonderful evening flying with Keith over breathtaking scenery on our way to a delicious dinner at Bosebuck Camp. 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

Keith, owner / operator of Acadian Seaplanes was awesome!!! His bush flying experience from Alaska most definitley shows in his flying skill and performance here in Rangeley Lake, Maine. His geographical knowledge made the flight experience all that much better. From Bald Head Mountain in the distance on takeoff to Upper Richardson Lake to Osicohos Lake, the views were breathtaking.... More

As taking a seaplane trip in the UK for a family of 4 is so expensive we took the opportunity to fly when in Maine. Efficient & friendly service together with a beautiful clear day made for a memorable trip over Casco Bay. Our pilot kept us laughing with the witty exchanges with air traffic control & he had lots... More

We were very comfortable with our pilot, who is cautious, experienced and since he grew up in the area, has extensive knowledge of the conditions on the lakes and in the air. We flew over a mountain range, secluded lakes and had a great view of Saddleback Mountain (see photo). We took an extended tour because we wanted the time... More

From the first call to the final landing, our experience with Acadian Seaplanes was first-class. Both T.R. and Keith were very personable but as our pilot, T.R. made quite the impression. His knowledge of the area, the native wildlife as well as his navigation skills were impeccable. From the stories told, it seems to run in his blood..... how comforting.... More

We took the Lakes Region tour. It was fantastic. This is the only way to see the lakes region in all it's beauty, rugged and unspoiled. Our pilot Keith made us feel comfortable and secure, his skill at flying this plane was impressive. We got a very interesting narrative on the history of the area and it's residents (yes we... More
