We arrived at Williamstown and the amazing Barb greeted us with a bottle of French Champagne to start the day of surprises.

And what a treat it was, even if only for a short while, you get such a great perspective of the area. The staff are great and Rod was fun and very professional. Will be back for he Sorrento trip with friends!

I have often looked at the Melbourne Seaplane taking off near the yachts and docks in Williamstown and thought to myself, how does he do that? The skill level looks very high and yet the pilot makes it look so simple. I guess the only answer was going to be to try it myself. So I called up and enrolled... More

Had a drive out on Sunday to take a flight over the city and down the coast to Half Moon Bay. Leonie handled the booking and was friendly and made the whole booking easy. Rod was a pleasure to deal with, flight was smooth and he pointed out all the local landmarks as we passed over. Great way to see... More

On a beautiful Sunday morning I used a red balloon voucher for a seaplane flight from Williamstown with Melbourne Seaplanes. Plane was surprisingly spacious and comfortable. The pilot, Rod, was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and was very accommodating when we were trying to get photos of the various sites. Our flight was about 30 minutes with about 10 minutes...

Having done many "experiences" over the years, this is no doubt one of the best. My husband and I had a flight that took us down to Sorrento where we had lunch at a local restaurant and then back. While this required good conditions at both ends of the bay, it was so worthwhile. Rod was a great host and... More

Firstly, I state that I know Rod and Leonie well and have for a long time but this is no way puts bias on this fantastic attraction. Visitors and locals - you will never have seen the city like this, just the taxi out to the runway shows the Melbourne skyline as seldom viewed, then to take off aiming at... More

Took the extended coastal and city flight. A beautiful day and a wonderful flight. Rod gives a great commentary through the headsets. We loved it.
