     Sydney Seaplane Scenic Flight Review Rose Bay


Aerial view of Sydney Harbour from Sydney Seaplane. Sydney Seaplane Scenic Flight

Sydney Harbour is a spectacular sight and there are many ways to enjoy the scenery. From the air, the real beauty is laid out before you in such gorgeous detail that it is almost unbelievable that a harbour can look so good.

One of the most inexpensive ways to see this beauty from the air is to book a seaplane joy flight by Sydney Seaplanes, who operate from Rose Bay.

As you can see from the photographs taken on a seaplane flight, the views over Sydney's best loved attractions, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, are very spectacular from the seaplane. These are million dollar views that you will never forget and the experience is more than worth the price of a seat on the seaplane.

We chose to review the 30 minute seaplane flight, which takes you from Rose Bay, out between Sydney Heads and north along the coast to Palm Beach, where the popular television series "Home and Away" is filmed. You return via the Pittwater, which is an incredible sight in itself with luxury yachts and other water craft dotting the clear water, then take a turn around the Harbour and Opera House, before making a smooth landing in the calm waters of Rose Bay. The operators did not know that we were taking the flight to make a website review, so were treated like any other customer. We couldn't fault the service or the scenic flight and took hundreds of aerial photos and 30 minutes of fabulous video footage.

Sydney Seaplanes have several different flights available and there are even combo flights such as flights with luncheons or jet boat rides that include a 15 minute seaplane joy flight. We strongly suggest you check all the options to find one that suits both your needs and your budget.

2 whales heading toward a surfer off Curl Curl beach. The take off and landings on Rose Bay are particularly smooth, which amazed us. It is the fabulous views why you take the seaplane flight and they are really fantastic. We were lucky enough on the day to see a pair of whales just off Curl Curl beach.

Take a look at the photo we took of the whales from the seaplane and notice the surfer right in their path. The pilot circled the whales on the way north and gave us another circle on the way back. Spotting those whales certainly made the flight that little more memorable.

Rose Bay is actually Australia's original International Airport. The first overseas flights were made in specially constructed seaplanes. Luxurious Empire Class flying boats were used to fly the first passengers and mail to Singapore from Sydney, which heralded the start of International travel by airplane. Today Sydney Seaplanes use single engine Beaver class seaplanes which are ideally suited to scenic flights over the worlds most beautiful harbour.

The best way to get to Rose Bay to experience a seaplane flight yourself is by taking a Sydney Ferry from Circular Quay. This only takes 10 minutes and is quite inexpensive. Buses also run from the city to Rose Bay and the Bondi Explorer Bus is another popular tour that makes a stop at Rose Bay, the base for Sydney Seaplanes. The red Hop On Hop Off Sydney and Bondi Bus also makes a stop at Rose Bay.

The staff are fabulous and the pilot will give you a great flight with knowledgeable commentary throughout the duration of the ride. It's not at all scary or anything, in fact it's one of the best flights we have experienced. Make sure you take a digital camera or video camera as the views really are something to remember and the photos are something to show your family and friends.

Booking ahead is recommended, so follow the link for full information and online booking engine via Viator. This is something you really should experience yourself and in our opinion, a standout attraction of the many wonderful things that locals and visitors to Sydney can enjoy. Seaplane joy flights make great gifts for special occasions such as milestone birthdays, anniversaries or any memorable occasion. Why not take one just to spoil yourself?
