We take aircraft maintenance very seriously and take every effort to go above and beyond the scheduled programs. We want our customers to know that they are flying on the safest aircraft.

“The seaplane tour was unforgettable and so much fun. You are super people and professional. The windows were opened so we could take pictures without the glare!  We saw so many alligators, It was fantastic. We can't wait to do a different tour with them on our next visit to Florida.”

“Thank you to Pilot Brian, his wife and Adventure Seaplanes for the trip/flight of a lifetime for my grandchildren.  Brian was beyond kind and informative during their flight and they loved every second of their flight and the fact they got to "take off" twice from the water and land in the water and the see the ear to ear smiles.” 

Jack, Heather & Henry

“Once you got in the air, WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! It is so cool to take off from the water flying over some of the most beautiful scenery we have seen. The experience is most similar to riding a Harley Davidson at 110 MPH and at 1000 feet. Words cannot do the experience justice, do yourself a favor and book a tour with these guys. Thanks again Brian!”
