Fantastic tour! Our pilot was Martine who is bilingual and very knowledgeable. She was very charismatic and made my apprehensive 10 year old feel comfortable with her jokes. She flew us over thousand islands and showed us some shipwrecks we wouldn’t have been able to see without the birds eye view. Staff was welcoming and took great care for our safety. Absolutely worth it!

We took the 10 minute flight. Everyone we met was friendly and patiently answered all of our questions (which I'm sure they have been asked hundreds of times!). The views were postcard perfect. The take off and landing were extremely smooth. The pilot pointed out places of interest.

As local residents for the last 7 years, we wanted to see the Thousand Islands from a different perspective -- from the air. THIS WAS AMAZING!!! Everything about this company is first class!! Highly recommend!

From the moment we stepped foot into building we were warmly greeted by two individuals. That warm welcome and service continued through out our time with them. The pilot was as equally welcoming and informative. The view and explaining of what we were seeing was great. I plan to come again and bring my mother for this wonderful experience!

I gifted the 10 minute flight to my boyfriend for his birthday this year and we loved it. The weather worked in our favor and the views were really cool. Great customer service and our pilot (I believe his name was Bill) was lovely and knowledgeable. :)
