This Lake Union seaplane flight gives you a thrilling perspective on Seattle.

Begin on Lake Union in the heart of the city. After taking off in your seaplane, see Lake Union’s famous houseboat communities. Feel the freedom of soaring through the sky as the beautiful University of Washington campus comes into focus, along with magnificent lakeside and seaside estates. Fly over Seattle’s professional sports stadiums, Century Link Field and Safeco Field (homes to the Seahawks and Mariners, respectively) and the dramatic downtown skyline with the iconic Space Needle and Elliott Bay.

Finally, return to Lake Union for a water landing to cap off your tour.
