We had an amazing adventure, we flew from the dock in Parry Sound to Henry's. The flight was our first time in a four seat airplane that took took off and landed on the water. The staff was friendly and professional. The flight offered a different perspective of the area.

You can take a boat...but why not see the most gorgeous views in entirety from an extremely safe plane? We decided - why not? We are so happy we did! We will never forget it.

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.
