Reviews on our Greater Bay Area Tour
Read some of our 700+ 5-Star Reviews
We enjoyed a San Francisco Bay area tour. It was awesome, really felt very safe and is certainly the best way to have an overview of the area, with great views from above. Comments by the pilot were interesting and fun, and it was an exceptional experience to fly on a vintage seaplane. Highly recommended!

We did the Greater Bay Area flight on Sunday and had a really nice trip! Location is easy to find, right off 101, parking is no problem, and staff was great and sped through check-in. Our pilot did a great job with the winds that day, and narrating points of interest along the way. Smooth flight and great views of the coast and the city.
