Fabulous experience

Extremely friendly and accommodating staff on cold but sunny winters day. Had my elderly father with a repairing broken hip, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful getting him on and off the plane. Got a bonus landing and take off to drop some passengers onto a Waiheke beach - James Bond style :) Pilot kept us very well entertained and was very informative, even to a local!! Highly recommend this trip to everyone... Thank you

Hello Melanie, Thank you very much for your feedback! It was a pleasure having you and your dad on the flight and he did really well! Perhaps we see you and him again, our oldest passenger to date was 4 months shy of his 100th birthday!

Best birthday surprise!

I booked this for my partner's birthday, and he absolutely loved it. The team at Auckland Seaplanes worked with me to ensure that he had an awesome experience, including upgrading us to a flight to Kawau Island for a gourmet lunch overlooking the beach.
