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.

This is just AWESOME! Well worth the money but take 45 minutes minimum. The pilot was very skilled and the commentary was very informative.An amazing experience and a brilliant way to see the whole of San Francisco Bay.

"Little too laid back pickup, but very cool flght"

We realized too late that we wanted Alcatraz tickets, so we booked the combo package with Seaplane Adventures. We waited over an hour in the sun for our pickup, without any notification from the company. That started us off in an irritable frame of mind. The pickup driver didn't apologize, he just kept "explaining" that traffic was really bad because of an event. Letting us know so we could stroll around or do other things would have helped that a lot. Once we got there, check in was smooth and the pilot, John, was pleasant and low key. The ride itself was terrific. John went to the places we could see (there were lots of clouds and fog) and had some interesting comments about the sights. He tilted the plane to the left and right to give us better views of some places of interest. The landing was very neat, and the return drive was ok. We had to ask like five or six questions for the driver to tell us we just needed photo ID to pick up our Alcatraz tickets. Had we known this when we were waiting for pickup, we could have saved time and frustration. The cool factor of the seaplane ride itself outweighed these silly problems, but they could have been avoided.

"Come to Marin to Enjoy Nature--Don't ruin it with Seaplane Adventures"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

I have lived in Marin for over 30 years now. Nature is my core value. Most people including myself travel to see natural treasures. The beaches, the bay, the birds, mountains--all of it are so precious. I live directly across from the Seaplane and can not kayak or paddle board during some months due to the natural wildlife restrictions. I see a bald eagle and osprey from time to time with the constant flocks of heron and egrets. These birds are most certainly disturbed by the seaplane because I can't talk on my deck or at the pool! The Seaplane Adventure is a Disruption to the people, wildlife and pursuit of nature in Marin. If you love nature--take a hike, walk or bike ride--Not the Seaplane. This is a total disruption to all of the bay area! He has unlimited flights and does not care one bit about being a good steward of nature!!!

The hour long flight is a blast. I thought we'd just tool around the Bay, but we headed up the Marin headlands past Mt. Tam to Tomales Bay & Pt. Reyes. The trip back south took in Pt. Bonita and the old batteries. You get a good view of both lighthouses without the long trek down the bluff. On a clear day (which we had) you can see out to the Farallons, and you'll get to do some whale and pinniped watching if you're lucky. Aaron, the pilot, points out the sights and gives a bit of history and context along the way. I can vouch for his familiarity with the area and its history. You're likely to learn a bit, even if you grew up in Northern California and made it through fourth grade CA history.
