Our 20-minute basic flight will take you over the splendor of the greatest city in the U.S. - San Francisco! On this flight you will take off from our seabase in the lovely bayside village of Sausalito just across the Golden Gate Bridge. We will fly along the shoreline of the quaint bayside village of Sausalito, then right over the legendary Golden Gate Bridge herself! We continue to Crissy Field, Downtown San Francisco, AT&T Park - Home of the San Francisco Giants, then on over the infamous island prison of Alcatraz. Finally your flight will be completed with a pass by the historic Angel Island, and back for a smooth landing back in Sausalito’s Richardson Bay.

The pilot was great and had a good personality. My stomach just couldn't take the turns and the weather had been bad so I got sick during the ride. He was so nice about it, but I did feel bad for the other riders. I would definitely recommend and just hope for better weather. My husband loved it though :)

Much better than helicopter ride because you have more minutes flying! Pilots was great too! We did the 45 minutes flight which covered an excellent area of San Francisco! Definitely recommend!

Our original intent for booking this excursion was to secure sold-out Alcatraz Tour tickets. Wow . . . we we pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed the seaplane tour. The 30 mins(+) we spent was a blast. The pilot/guide was professional, engaging, funny and very knowledgeable. He even circled a spot in the bay to allow our group to see a surfacing whale! We learned things about the history and the present about the area that we had never heard before. And, of course, we saw S.F. from a perspective that few get to see. This is much more enjoyable than a 10-15 helicopter ride. This ended up the highlight of our 4 days in the city. Highly recommend it!
