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.

My 13 year old nephew and I thoroughly enjoyed our seaplane tour of Seattle on a gorgeous July day. My nephew even got to sit in the co-pilot's seat! Large windows make viewing and photo taking easy.
