Escape the ordinary and enjoy the exhilaration of a seaplane tour! Of all the things to do in Seattle, there’s no question that flying off from the water and soaring over one of the most beautiful parts of the world is one of the quintessential Northwest experiences.

Every seat provides a window view on this 20-minute narrated scenic flight tour over the Seattle area. You'll view Lake Union's famous houseboat communities, the beautiful UW campus, magnificent lakeside and seaside estates, Seattle's downtown skyline and sports stadiums, the Elliott Bay waterfront and on a clear day, the stunning snow-capped mountain ranges framing Seattle. All our tours begin with an exciting water takeoff and finish with a gentle landing on South Lake Union, right in the heart of the city. Daily departures available. $99 per person including tax.Also fly with Kenmore Air to over 45 spectacular Northwest destinations, including the San Juan Islands, Victoria, BC and Port Angeles, gateway to the Olympic Peninsula.

Kenmore Air is a reliable and longtime player in regional air travel for Puget Sound. For years I have seen the airplanes come and go, especially from their seaplane base in Lake Union, but despite having business interests in the San Juan Islands, I never had an occasion to fly to the islands (versus the ferry system). That changed a... More

Hands down the best way to see the surrounding Seattle area. Easy ticket purchase, check in, and boarding along with friendly pilots and staff. Took a day trip over to the San Juan's and had a great experience. We ended up spending the entire day with the other family of 3 on our plane. This is what travel is all... More

Such an amazing adventure! We took a round-trip flight from Kenmore to Friday Harbor via stops on Lake Union in Seattle. The views were absolutely spectacular! Tip: Be sure to pack several small bags instead of one large suitcase. Room is very limited on float planes and your return plane may be too small to accommodate your family size bag.

Flying between the San Juan Islands and Seattle on a small plane is a fantastic and scenic experience. Kenmore makes it easy. My most recent flight was on a freezing morning. I expected the Cessna to to be cold, as well, but it was comfortably warm. I left a hat on the shuttle van to SeaTac, and they flew it... More

We flew to Seattle from Victoria, and it is amazing how convenient seaplanes are. 45 minute flight. Traveling in the winter months can be iffy because of weather, but we were lucky and had no cancellations. Staff are very pleasant, and the pilots are excellent - no worries at all.

In the past few months I have flown on Kemore on 3 different trips for a total of 6 flights. The pilots, gate agents, and the even the operators on the phone if you call to make a reservation are all super friendly. I have flown via float plane from Lake Union in Seattle and from Boeing field. Booking a... More
