Took a short 20 min flight taking off and landing on the water. Great fun, put it on your list of 'must do' in Seattle.

The plane is a low seaplane with a step up about 2-3 stairs (short) into the plane. She could sit in front as co-pilot. It's off a main road and a ramp to the area where the plane boards.
