arrival c 15 35 - seaplane doable?

Have any of you had an international arrival of 15 35 and missed a seaplane?

I know it is a bit risky but just looking for your opinion - it is to help answer a question on the french forum......

thanks

cassie

No, an hour earlier, and we still had to wait for a couple of hours, so it's doable, but it's very risky...

Hi, we landed in january at 4pm (an hour late) and were off the plane, luggage collected and on the bus to the seaplane terminal within 25 minutes which was incredibly quick but we still missed our allocated seaplane slot. The resort was great (thanks Mirihi!!) and organised for us to be taken to the closest island possible and we were then collected by speedboat. Not sure every resort would have gone that extra step...could be wrong...we ended up taking off from male at 5.15pm and at that time there was still a fair amount of seaplane activity in and around Male

its definitely doable .. unless your intenational flight has over a couple hours delay ... but yes, risky .

then again .. you could arrive at 8 am and find a storm over male and the seaplanes grounded .. its always a bit iffy

Check with the resort you're travelling to, but it's do-able. Most days the last seaplane to our resort leaves around 6pm or later.
