Another bucket list activity, done !
Did the dine and fly to Henry’s San Souci . Fantastic experience . Our pilot Brittany was fabulous, I will admit to being a little nervous but she really put me at ease , taking the time to answer my questions. The scenery is amazing and gives you a completely different perspective of the area. Highly recommend

We had an awesome flight with Chelsea on a perfect summer day. The views were amazing. I had no idea that there we so many islands. It was one of the best experiences. I would highly recommend.

Extremely disappointed in this company. I booked 2 months in advance, for a 60th birthday gift for my dad. I included this detail in the booking, and Kasey even mentioned how lucky the birthday boy was to be receiving this as a gift. The plane was going to fly to our lake and pick us up. I booked a one hour flight, separated into 2 half hours as the plane that we were told could land on our lake could only fit 3 passengers. I sent the co-ordinates and Kasey confirmed twice that the trip was a go, and even agreed with me when I decided we would like to do a boat transfer as there are rocks near our dock. *Disclaimer: this company has been to this exact location before, as my Uncle received this as a gift for his 50th as well*.
I got a call at 4pm on Friday, the NIGHT BEFORE our 11 am flight was scheduled. Whoever called me gave no specific reason for cancelling, some back and forth reasons that had to do with humidity?
I called back 10 minutes later to ask what exactly the reason for cancelling was and why it was happening extremely last minute, as this now ruins our dads 60th birthday. I spoke with Ashley who was very helpful, and who continuously tried to get to the bottom of it.
Turns out, the lake was too small to land (Weird, cause they landed here before, and also weird because Kasey confirmed the location and co-ordinates with me twice, as well as a senior pilot)
I finally got to speak to Kasey (who was e-mailing me back and forth for 2 months) on Saturday morning and instead of trying to help me solve the problem, she sighed at me when I asked for options to land at other docks.
Extremely unprofessional and ridiculous to cancel the night before, when it was the fault of themselves. Will not be referring anyone to use this company.

Our family booking for Oct 11th (booked on Sept 19th) was cancelled on Oct 10 because we are from Toronto and Pilot don't feel comfortable flying us due to potential COVID infection. Not sure why that thought never occurred earlier to them and the same was not mentioned in the website before booking? Birthday was spoiled.

Staff very friendly, helpful. Weren’t sure if flight would go due to rain, but, we had a clearing so we went. Pilot very efficient, friendly. Great to see from different perspective. If on your bucket list, then sit back and enjoy this flight company.

Hi There

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour over the islands. Everyone should take it.

The pilot was extremely patient with we two seniors and gave us a good pre-flight description.

We have been many places in the world, and I have the same observation here that I registered before.

What can be seen in Canada is not great It is MAGNIFICENT!!!

Thank again, have a good day John & Jean Brown Cambridge

Took my dad on a flight for his birthday. I had them pick us up right at our dock. The pilot (I forget her name) was amazing and friendly. She explained everything to us throughout the flight and took us on an amazing tour of the 30000 islands. Will be defianatly flying again!!!

Even though we are in Safe Covid Travel, We where well greated, only thing was that we couldn't communicate with Pilot once in the Air because we couldn't wear the HeadSets. But the view and ride was well worth it for us.

This was bought for me as a gift for myself and one other fisherperson. The preflight safety briefing was standard and helpful. The staff were pleasant and eager to please. They were very concerned about weight, we were asked about our weight twice and actually weighed once just before stepping aboard the plane. The plane was relatively new and in good shape, well maintained. The pilot made sure everything was warmed up before the Cessna floatplane taxied out the bay and into the air. I always love flying in small aircraft and the views of the land and lakes were lovely as expected. Before we knew it, we circled our lake and quickly descended to a comfortable landing on the water. We taxied to a small bay with the boat we were to use. The pilot and copilot retrieved the boat engine, which we could not start despite best efforts, but fortunately had a spare engine, which started fine and trolled at a perfect speed. We fished all 3 lakes and caught 3 decent bass between the two of us. We lost a large bass after a small fish got hooked on our line and it decided to eat the smaller fish. It was funny battling a big bass only to pull up a tiny fish that got thrown back! My buddy also lost a large pike at the side of the boat, probably could have been prevented with a steel leader, but might not have bit in the first place. The fish of the day was a 36 inch pike, that pretended to have been a snag on the bottom, until it took off and started towing the boat. It took me about 20 minutes to land. We released the fish undamaged, so it's still there for someone else to catch, along with my friend's which was nearly as big. We fished all 3 lakes but had the most luck in the one that we got to via a stream. We were picked up on time as expected and the flight back was uneventful and pretty. I would definitely do this trip again. It was a great day.
