Full description
For those wishing to treat themselves to the absolute highlights of Sydney’s famous coast and waterways, this 30-minute seaplane flight is a must. The immaculately restored, classic Beaver seaplane adds to the nostalgia - such a contrast to the myriad of high-tech cruisers zigzagging the bay.

After encompassing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, viewing the Sydney Opera House and marvelling at views of the CBD, continue north from Sydney Harbour. Your experienced pilot knows this area like the back of their hand and will point out the famous beaches along the route, including Manly, Curl Curl, Avalon and the iconic Palm Beach – where Australia’s favorite soap Home and Away is filmed. You will return to the harbor via the yachties paradise of Pittwater and be amazed at the number of boats grouped around the nooks and crannies of this picturesque waterway.

Gliding gracefully over the surface, the single-engined Beaver eventually touches the water, leaving a trail of white foam and noise, until finally coming to rest. The sedate, high wing Beaver aircraft is perfect for still or video photography.
