Really smooth takeoff and landing. Amazing views over Seattle. Commentary was taped and could have been a little more informative and accurate to the point of flight. Still a great experience. You need to know your weight accurately!

I’d like to start by saying that flying in airplane has always made me nervous. I have never enjoyed flying. That changed today. My sister and I took a Seaplane with Kenmore Air from Seattle/Lake Union to Friday Harbor and back. This experience really made our trip memorable!
