You will venture south at 500 feet until reaching the world famous Bondi Beach, before returning via the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, with views over the CBD.
Taking off in a seaplane from Rose Bay, it is hard not to be awed as beautiful Sydney Harbour unveils itself beneath. The immaculately restored, classic Beaver seaplane adds to the nostalgia - such a contrast to the myriad of high-tech cruisers zigzagging the bay.
As you gently exit the harbour, rolling swells crash against the magnificent sandstone cliffs rising from the sea. You will venture south at 500 feet until reaching the world famous Bondi Beach. Your pilot will manoeuvre the aircraft so that all on board have a great view. From Bondi you head back into the harbour and climb to 1000 feet, even for a seasoned local the vista is truly stunning. You will track all the way to the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, and complete a circuit above both famous icons.
On descent back to Rose Bay your pilot will point out the beautiful houses of the rich and famous that punctuate the area. 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.

After you know what ? Possibly the best 20 minutes of my life. And i've done a lot of stuff.
I would like to thank you and the staff as my mother in law and brother in law thought it was a most wonderful trip
Sydney Sea Planes Staff were exceptional. Awesome experience. I captured it all on GoPro - you're welcome to a copy. Thank you.
It was a great experience & a lovely, unusual birthday surprise for my husband. Everything went very smoothly.
The flight was upgraded to a 30 mins flight by Sydney Seaplanes the day before my schedule at no cost to me. I do have a minor matter that mey be addressed and that is the headset provided had no mike so the passengers (4 in total) were unable to ask the pilot questions.
Sydney Sea Planes offered a amazingly unique opportunity to see Sydney Harbour from the air. From safety briefing through to touch down the experience offered an adrenalin kick and I loved taking photos of this beautiful city from above. Would highly recommend this experience!!
A very professional service and with perfect team on that day.
The Seaplane trip was awesome. All staff were professional and friendly and, while only a short flight, we felt that we had completed a small adventure. Please pass our sincere thanks on to all the staff for giving us a special experience on our trip to Australia
