I took my two kids - a 10-yr-old and 12-yr-old and we had a great flight! We did the 20 minute loop around the lake and it was a lovely view, despite being a little hazy that day. We were there in early June. We would recommend this as a great way to get a lovely overview of the lake!

Ist time in a seaplane... although we had to wait a couple of hours in the hope of additional persons to fill the flight,our party of 3 eventually got onto the DHC Beaver. The big radials suck up fuel at a very fast rate so filling up the plane with passengers was reasonable requirement. The takeoff was smooth. sort of like power boating with wings, and the main part of the flight was very scenic. The pilot did his best to keep us informed re the sights and points of interest, but I was enjoying the moment of the sound of the engine and too soon it was time to return to reality, land and scoot back to the pier. Really great stuff and look forward for a repeat flight PS I lied about the date, not enough scope on the questionnaire. ( thought I had already placed a review much earlier.). .

Amazing trip and chance to tip the wings to my father who flew for the USAF for three decades. The Beaver (the plane itself) is a classic and taking off/landing on water is simply a blast! Neil is a great pilot and this trip should not be missed.

This flight was to celebrate my husband's 83rd birthday....and to remember our days as pilots. Both my husband and I are seaplane rated and former airline pilots so nice to get into a small plane again. The day was perfect and Eric our pilot did a wonderful job with the Beaver....and giving us a good tour of the area. He also hoped to find some wildlife for us tot see but no luck there. We both highly recommend this flight as it is scenic, historical and great fun. Thank you Eric.

What a cool experience. To take off from the lake and get a low level tour of the area from a sea plane was incredible. Our pilot was extremely knowledgeable about the area pointing out all the landmarks. You can also spot Moose and bears along the way. Definitely worth every cent!
