No better way to get a sense of the islands and inlets. Our pilot was just super and flew low enough to see individual houses (ours) and high enough to see the entire stretch of beach. My elderly father was in our party and the airport staff and pilot were both very patient and helpful.

The pilot was very knowledgeable about the area and was great company during the flight. My husband and I took the sunrise flight and thoroughly enjoyed the trip!
