Unforgettable experience for the person with everything
The experience begins in Rosebay where you check in, and await your boarding time in the lounge area. Once boarded, you take in a scenic flight of Sydney beaches, National Park or Hawkesbury River, depending on where you are headed. The return flight includes a photo opportunity of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, so it's great for tourists as well as locals.
The Restaurants offer different options and the prices vary, so look at the options here for all the details and menus available. You can even have a 15 minute Sydney Highlights flight followed by lunch at Catalina's. Restaurants include Jonah's at Whale Beach, Cottage Point Inn on the water in the National Park at Cottage Point or even a picnic on Shark Island in the beautiful Sydney Harbour. They also offer lunch at Manfredi at Bells on the Central Coast.
What all these destinations have in common, other than being top restaurants (many with Hats), is that they are situated in stunning locations, so the scenic journey is only the beginning.
Once landed, a launch will transfer you to the restaurant and you can relax over a leisurely lunch. When we went, we relaxed with a post lunch drink in the sunshine for half an hour before we needed to head off again, so you have plenty of time to savour your meal and enjoy yourselves.
The menus are varied and examples are given on the website, so you can choose the type of meal that appeals. Drinks are not included, unless otherwise stated.
So if you have a Fortieth or Fiftieth coming up, organise a group to give a truly special gift. Planning a proposal, what could be more perfect than flying to a secluded beach for a picnic? Or just want to spoil the person who has everything? Sydney Seaplanes Fly & Dine packages are a truly unforgettable experience.
