Spread Your Wings With Melbourne Seaplanes
Departing from a pontoon strategically located between Gem Pier and Blunts Boatyard at Williamstown the Cessna float-planes operated by Melbourne Seaplanes provide a unique visual perspective of Melbourne and surrounds.
Melbourne Seaplanes operate from the foreshore in the heart of Williamstown
Offering flights over the Melbourne City Skyline, a coastal flight to Half Moon Bay and a Way-Out West Coastal Flight Melbourne Seaplanes deliver a safe, professional and interesting flight experience for people of all ages.
Landings and take-offs are made on Hobson's Bay ant the mouth of Melbourne's Yarra River
The Port Phillip Bay Scenic Flight departs Williamstown and, at 500 feet, tracks down the west coast of the Bay to Port Arlington and Queenscliff, crosses Port Philip Heads and over the bayside resorts of Portsea and Sorrento then up the coast to Melbourne. Before landing back on Hobson's Bay passengers get a birds-eye view of the City skyline, Albert Park Lake and the MCG.
The Cessna 185 Amphibean is a thoroughly reliable light aircraft and a popular float-plane around the world.
For special occasions they'll tailor fly/dine packages to Sorrento, Queenscliff and Geelong or drop you into a secluded beach for a romantic picnic getaway.
Melbourne Seaplanes is operated by husband and wife team Rod and Leonie Gunther and can cater for up to 5 passengers in a light aircraft of proven reliability and comfort.
