Seaplane Tours

The natural beauty of the island is best discovered from the air.

The scenic diversity of this part of the island guarantees memorable sightseeing. With an ever-changing palette of colours and landscapes to discover, each flight is uniquely mesmerizing. Flying past the majestic Le Morne Mountain, a World Heritage site, is an absolute treat, an unforgettable moment to bring back home.

Our operations base is located on the southwesterly coast of the island, at Le Morne Peninsula which is famous the world over for its enchanting scenery and the top-rated One Eye kiting spot. We also operate pick up and drop off points from many suitable locations on the coastline such as hotel jetties but depending on weather and sea conditions.

Our seaplane is fit for only one passenger, of legal age. Minors require prior parent or guardian authorisation. Flights vary in duration from 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the chosen itinerary. We also cater for specific requests on demand, after prior agreement on flight time and itinerary. The pick up and drop off point must be the same.

Flights are operated with a professionally maintained and fully serviced TL 3000 SIRIUS, manned by an enthusiastic, experienced and licensed bilingual (French/English) pilots.

We offer the following services

      • Sight-seeing: Within minutes of takeoff, the scenic beauty and variety is just spellbinding. The southwesterly part of the island is best discovered from the air.
