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!

Fun, Exciting Beautiful experience I will never forget. Flying over Elliot Bay, up Puget Sound and landing in Victoria bay by the Empress is the experience of a lifetime.

BEWARE OF LOW CLOUD AND FOG..my first time flying in a sea plane, and the views were spectacular!! However, half way down to Seattle from Vancouver/Coal Harbour, the pilot informed us we had to turn back to Vancouver due to limited visibility. I understand that weather conditions are out of the control of airlines, but it was still frustrating! I ended up having to book a last minute Bolt Bus to get down to SEA. My advice would be to drive, take the bus, or fly out of YVR on larger plane during low cloud days as Kenmore/Harbour Air May very well have to cancel or delay flying.

Really smooth takeoff and landing. Amazing views over Seattle. Commentary was taped and could have been a little more informative and accurate to the point of flight. Still a great experience. You need to know your weight accurately!

There is no better way to get to and from the San Juan Islands than flying with Kenmore Air. Quick, friendly, and efficient, you'll surely have a positive experience both with the ticketing agents as well as the flight staff. Everything is very professional and quality focused. If you are flying into SEATAC for a San Juan Islands visit, the shuttle service they offer to Lake Union works very well. I can't say enough positive things about this quality regional airline.
