See Sydney from the air aboard a historic Sydney seaplane. From Harbord Bridge to Bondi Beach, you can enjoy spectacular views of the harbor city on your scenic 15-minute seaplane flight. What better way to get your bearings in Sydney?

Your flight takes off and lands in Rose Bay on Sydney Harbour, eight kilometers from Sydney city centre. You'll be amazed by the view of Sydney Harbor unfolding below you as you soar through the air in a seaplane, a nice nostalgic touch that contrasts with Australia's high-tech world.



Your scenic flight takes you along the sea port, where you can admire the stunning sandstone cliffs rising abruptly from the water. You will then be able to fly over the famous Bondi Beach, where your pilot will maneuver the plane so that all on board have an unobstructed view.

Highlights

  • Done in English
  • Instant confirmation
  • Panoramic plane trip
  • Qualified commercial pilot

At Bondi, you'll head back over the harbor to climb 1.000 feet for a truly outstanding view of Sydney. You'll complete a circuit above Sydney's Port Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, for unforgettable photos of these two famous icons.

On your descent back to Rose Bay, your pilot will point out the beautiful homes of the rich and famous that line the water's edge, before the gentle descent back to land.

You then have the option of combining your scenic flight from Sydney by seaplane with a tasting three-course a la carte lunch at the famous Catalina Restaurant in Rose Bay, a must for those looking for a true Aussie dining experience.
