Sydney Seaplanes- The treat of a lifetime.
Hours: 7 days per week, except Christmas Day.
We currently own and operate 2 De Havilland Beaver, and 1 Cessna Caravan 208 amphibian, all aviation classics. As safety is our highest priority we ensure our aircraft are maintained to the absolute strictest of standards. The majority of our charter work at the moment is conducted on our very popular fly/dine packages to sensational destinations in the Hawkesbury River & Palm Beach areas. Restaurants such as the Cottage Point Inn, Berowra Waters or Jonahs Palm Beach are always a hit, and offer world class service, cuisine and location. We also operate scenic flights from Rose Bay in and around Sydney Harbour and Beaches, as well as the Blue Mountains.
Water Taxi For the ultimate way to get to Rose Bay ask about our new water taxi serivce. Daisy or as shes affectionately known Big Red has been beautifully refurbished and whips around from Circular Quay or Darling Harbour to Rose Bay in a very stylish 15 minutes. Round trip rates for Sydney Seaplanes passengers are $50 per person, and transfers from anywhere in Sydney Harbour are available on request.

Map & Directions
Our seaplanes depart from the Seaplane Base, Lyne Park, Rose Bay on Sydney Harbour. The Seaplane Base is a small departure building to the right hand side of the Catalina Restaurant.
Lyne Park is just before the Rose Bay shopping village on New South Head Road, and is also where the Sydney Harbour public ferries depart from. Generally driving from central Sydney takes 10-15 minutes, and public ferries from Circular Quay take 12 minutes.
