They flew out to the house we were renting on short notice and gave three of us a 45 minute tour of the area. Very flexible folks and friendly. Clearly an excellent pilot and extremely knowledgeable. We felt this was a very good value and certainly worthwhile.

This was a trip for my partner's birthday. He was very excited, but I was a bit nervous - I get travel sick and have been known to be worried about flying before. But I needn't have worried - our pilot was super-friendly, gave us a very in-depth safety briefing, and answered all our questions both on the ground (or... More

We have a cottage near Parry Sound and wanted to do a flight around the area in a float plane; we called to ask if they could pick us up and drop us off at our own dock (boat only access) rather than having to go into town to the shop; owner came on the phone and made arrangements directly...

A spur of the moment decision on a visit to Parry Sound, returning from the near north. The weather was excellent, we had no time constraints, so took the 30 minute tour of the 30,000 islands, with Georgian Bay Airways. Float planes are such fun! Jesse (the pilot), was excellent. The sightseeing wonderful. Office staff were helpful, and explained options... More
