Wonderful scenic views over the lakes and countryside of Tavares, Mount Dora and Lake County generally. Captain Todd is friendly and welcoming pilot and tour guide offering great value flights on his seaplane from the Tavares seaport.
Highly recommended.

One of our favorite memories of beautiful Lake County/Lake Dora/Tavares area since moving here in 2001. Our pilot was outstanding, and the views from above Lake Dora and surrounding areas were fantastic. Would recommend all residents/visitors take this ride ... great views you just would never see from land. Well worth the cost ... it's a memory forever. Jones Bros. Seaplane does it right!

Let me start off saying on the day we flew the winds topped 25mph and my wife, and son never flown before. Our pilot Rick was a superstar. He put my wife ,and son at ease loaded us and took off like it was a mild breeze blowing. Once airborne my wife soon became sick to her stomach but that is something you just can't predict . Rick handle the situation got us down as soon as possible and made my wife feel less embarrassed than she already was. It is a great experienced and I recommend it to everyone. They have a variety of flight packages and are reasonably priced.

We pre-booked a sea-plane fight on 28th April as a birthday treat for me. Over the years we have travelled on many different modes of transport and this was one I had been wanting to do for a long time. We booked the 55 minute flight which was around the local countryside rathe than flying over the theme parks which is one of there most popular trips.
After being introduced to the young pilot we set of from the lake and quickly gained a height of about 1000 feet which is a fabulous height for sightseeing.
Although the plane was noisy it did not distract from the wonderful experience of flying over the many lakes and forests.
The flight was far smoother than I expected it to be and the take-off and landing were very exciting.
Although not cheap this is a one off sort of trip and a great alternative to another visit to a theme park and if you get the opportunity fly with the Jones boys.

Half way through our holiday in Florida. Did a helicopter ride last time we were here so fancied something different this time and found this Seaplane adventure close to a classic car museum we fancied visiting. Had an absolutely fantastic time, situated in a lovely little area, the owners are friendly and not at all pushy, a range of difference flights available and all really good value for money. The pilot, Steve, ever so friendly and chatty, made sure that we had a fabulous experience on our 35 minute tour, pointing out landmarks of interest and flying nice and low so we could spot the gators in the lake. Cannot recommend this trip enough, we enjoyed it and our 17 year old has been raving about it all afternoon. It's going to be really hard to find something different next time we come that will top this adventure. Also a lovely little Irish pub just over the road where we ate an absolutely delicious lunch!
