We had a great time. Pilot Dan took on us a 60 minute tour. It was wonderful. We even spotted whales! Definitely an exciting afternoon.

Most magnificent joy ride over the bay. We had a hilarious, informative tour guide and the most accommodating staff. We got to see the gorgeous sights around the city and Marin. I would most definitely recommend!

Amazing start to finish. We took the shuttle from Fisherman’s Wharf which was exactly on time. The check in process was quick and hassle free. The whole flight was amazing, we didn’t really know what to expect but the experience is phenomenal and will never be forgotten.
