“Wild ride”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

We went up for a spin, the aircraft is a bit of a klunker but it was fun and noisy. Great to see the Gold Coast from the air though.

“Loved every second”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Highly recommended, we had a flip over Surfers Paradise, the buildings and the waterways - never realised how much water there is here. Captain Pete dropped us off at McLarens Landing for a ncie relaxed barbie and colld beers for lunch before picking us up again to continue our magnificent experience.

“Fun, exciting and fabulous! (pregnancy friendly)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is the ride of a lifetime. I can guarantee that by the time you've finished the flight, you'll be so pleased that you'll be recommending this awesome experience to all your friends and family! Pete the pilot is superbly friendly, fun, accommodating, easy-going and makes you feel like you're not "just another customer". My wife was 36 weeks pregnant when we flew and we had an absolute blast! Pete made sure he didn't do anything we were uncomfortable with and made sure we had heaps of fun. I can't recommend this enough and I will keep recommending this to all of our friends and family. Sam

Hi Sam and Bronwyn, thanks for your kind words. After two cancelations due to weather the trip to the island and back worked out well. I told you it would be worth the wait.
Finally sorry Sam but I still think Bronwyn can fly better than you! Oh dear that will cause some interesting discussions in the future. Great to meet you both and good luck with the future. Cheers, Pete

“Words cannot describe this awesome experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

This was the highlight of our trip to Queensland this year. The ride in a seaplane was going to be exciting in itself, however, we got a lot more than we bargained for. I would not like to spoil this excitement for anyone as it would be like telling you the end of a blockbuster movie :-)
Seriously this is something you should put on your to do list or surprise someone as a special gift. Pete was our pilot. He is so friendly yet very professional and made this adventure even more special. Thanks Pete. We will be back.
