We had a great time flying over Seattle on a beautiful day. Our French exchange student got a great view and thoroughly enjoyed her airtime. The pilot was fun and gave us a great tour above the city and pointed out some amazing sights. This was not my first time in a light plane, but my first ride in a float plane. The pilot was very experienced and the aircraft was well maintained. We would recommend Seaplane Scenic to anyone thinking about trying a float plane ride. Thanks, Dan Beard
Great time for our family of 5 to begin a trip to Seattle with a seaplane tour. A big thrill and our pilot provided great information along the way.
The pilot was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Trip was as stated. Pilot was fun and informative.
We so enjoyed today!! Thank you for the hospitality and scenic tour of the area! The pilots were knowledgeable and entertaining. What a great experience!!
James (our pilot) is very friendly, informative and professional. I booked this (with Tom over the phone) as a surprise gift for our wedding anniversary (with a special request). Between James and Tom; everything was handled very well. We had a pleasant experience.
One of the best experience of our life :) Enjoyed a lot!
This was a great trip and a fantastic way to see Seattle and the surrounding area to work out where to spend some more time during our vacation. James our pilot was very entertaining and knowledgeable and we were surprised how smooth the take off and landing was in the seaplane. Definitely great value for money. We would recommend this to any visitors to the area.
Got this as a surprise gift and they loved it. Would definitely recommend.

Although it was very confusing as to where to actually board the plane, my husband had a Terrific time
This scenic tour was amazing --- such a great way to see our great city! Brought a friend new to the Seattle area and he was amazed at how cool this was! James is a fantastic tour guide and pilot --- very knowledgeable, made us feel at ease and entertained us with cool Seattle area tidbits throughout the tour. Highly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone.
Our pilot, James, was extremely friendly and was an excellent tour guide.
The pilot was humorous, welcoming, and had so many great fun facts about the city of Seattle to share! It happened to be such a gorgeous sunshiney evening for a plane ride, too. Loved it! Thank you.
Had IMMENSLY wonderful ride with family from out-of-town. I'm a plane nut to begin with (nut, not pilot). The owner/operator (forget name) was so personable. He gave running commentary of sites we viewed but frankly I was over-stimulated with the ride to understand what he was saying. I COULD HEAR because of the noise canceling head sets, just couldn't process! I've take a number of small plane rides, float planes are by far more exciting than airport departures. We detoured over my house. Took a bit to find it but with the pilot's guidance spotted it inside a tunnel of trees. A experienced pilot "sees" the ground much better. I bought the extra 20 min extension. If you are going up.. Ready to go again tomorrow..
Flight was great and pilot was awesome, it was just a bit warm and cramped in the plane
Fun and entertaining pilot! made twenty minutes seem twice as long.
James was the best! Fun and professional ...great experience...I am planning to schedule within 2 weeks again for 5 people because of the great time
James was very personable and provided wonderful details of the Seattle sites. We will definitely suggest this amazing experience to others!
I wanted a unique experience for a new team that we have formed, something special that tied us together. This was just brilliant!
Our guide was awesome! Super friendly and had a lot of knowledge of the area. Would definitely recommend!
