Why fly with Seaplane and Aero Adventures?

Experience the San Francisco skyline from the water and the Bay Area from the sky. Hover over the stunning landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge or take a longer excursion to marvel at the stunning giant redwoods of Muir Woods or gorgeous vineyard in the Napa Wine Country.

All of our tours were born out of a passion for the San Francisco Bay area and the wonder of flying in a float plane or helicopter.

Seaplane Adventures was founded by a returning World War II veteran with a desire to share Seaplane instruction. When Aaron Singer took over, he took that passion for Seaplanes and brought it to the public through seaplane tours. Seaplanes have played a significant role in American and world history. Our pilots have an admiration for that history and the unique experience seaplanes have to offer. That unique seaplane experience combined with the stunning views of the Bay Area makes a perfect place for our pilots to share their passion with curious visitors. Now we have added helicopter tours to our family of flights, providing a perfect addition to our current tour and charter services. Customers who have enjoyed a seaplane tour over San Francisco in the past will love the new tour option, giving them an exciting new opportunity to fly the City by the Bay!
