About Kenmore Air
Taking a seaplane flight is a quintessential Pacific Northwest experience & Kenmore Air makes it easy to enjoy the unique thrill of flying off Lake Union & soaring over one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Our 20-minute narrated Seattle Scenic Flight Tour leaves several times a day. Or take an incredible 90-minute scenic flight Volcano Tour from Seattle's Boeing Field that flies you around Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens 2-mile wide crater getting you up close and personal. And our full day whale watching tour (March-October) from Seattle to the San Juan Islands is unforgettable: hop on a seaplane from downtown Seattle in the morning, take a 3-hour naturalist-led boat tour looking for whales, sea lions & bald eagles, then return to Seattle in the late afternoon. Kenmore Air also has daily scheduled flights between downtown Seattle & the San Juan Islands, Victoria BC, or Vancouver BC. We also have seasonal flights to the BC Inside Passage fishing & boating!

I did the 20 minute Scenic Flight today. An amazing experience from start to finish. Very well operated and fantastic views of Seattle and the surrounding area. I’d thoroughly recommend this flight to anyone visiting the city. The Kenmore Air employees are so professional and friendly.

Oh what a day….thank heavens for Kenmore Airlines and their excellent employees. Major carriers changed my flights causing trickle down chaos. The customer service agents at Kenmore were kind, patient and helped me keep my sanity. They were professional and courteous - thanks Kenmore! We use their services many times yearly …. And appreciate the crew and customer agents always!

Unreliable flight service which cancelled 2 out of 2 flights and ruined our vacation, without providing any form of compensation. We were promised a full refund but have not seen any money! I have contacted the company regarding the missing refund but NO response from the company. I will NOT recommend anyone to fly with Kenmore, unless you want your vacation ruined and loose your money

Response from Todd B, President at Kenmore Air
Responded 8 May 2022
Mikael — On behalf of everyone here, please accept our deepest apologies. We were undergoing some internal updates to ultimately better serve our passengers. Unfortunately, we experienced some growing pains and your refund wasn’t processed as promptly as it should have been. While canceling flights is never something we like to do, passenger safety is always our top priority. That’s why all flights are weather-permitting. In the case of our entire seaplane fleet, we fly VFR, which stands for Visual Flight Regulations. So if there’s not enough visibility to fly, we are forced to cancel. It's our goal to provide the best possible experience and we appreciate that you brought this mistake to our attention.

We flew from Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands to Seattle. A $10 taxi ride brought us to a small lovely airport. There was We get a shot of our plane do you want to stand in front forplenty of parking and one terminal. Lots of seating & reading material. We were practically seated on the runway. There is no food served here but they have coffee & water. Flight with 8 passengers was :30? Comfortable, quick & easy. The most stressful part was weighing our luggage.

What a fun way to start our sea kayaking adventure in Friday Harbor, WA. We took a single prop plane out of the Boeing location directly into Friday Harbor. The pilots made us feel very comfortable and the flights were on time in both directions. The views over the islands outside of Seattle are stunning. It was fun to fly back into Seattle and see the Space Needle and city so close.
