Full description
Start your adventure with a briefing by the plane's take-off point on the Maroochy River. Get fitted for your adventure and kick your shoes off on the beach to access the seaplane. Smile for photos as your pilot tell you how to use the necessary equipment and lets you know what to expect. Be prepared for amazing views on a plane where every seat is a window seat and maximum visibility is the foremost design principle. Bring your camera along or just sit back, relax, and let your guide take photos of you before, during, and after your adventure.

Taxi out and take off from the waterway to experience a point of view afforded only to the black swans the river is named after. Enjoy a private tour with a pilot who is enthusiastic about his aircraft, Aussie culture, and the pristine environment you are flying over. Fly low and slow along the river to its mouth and south along the coast to Point Cartwright's Lighthouse. Rely on your pilot's vast experience of the area, it's iconic landmarks, wildlife, history, nature, and things-to-do.

Circle the lighthouse and return along the coastline at 500 feet before gradually descending to make a perfect water-landing on the Maroochy River. Flyers and non-flyers alike all come back with huge smiles.
