“Great flight and superb hamper” – June 2019
We booked the picnic option and could not have been more satisfied. We had a lovely hamper of food which we ate on the beach and had two very smooth takeoffs and landings and a wonderful scenic flight! Dave and Henry were very professional and made our day very enjoyable. I can recommend this experience without hesitation
“What a service!” – June 2019
These guys know service and safety. We needed to go to the airport after our air tour. Henry (tour operator and pilot)suggested we should grab our luggage from our hotel, come back and we would do the scenic tour then they would organise a landing at Hobart International airport to make our connection to Melbourne. Are you kidding! Land a seaplane at Hobart International! Well they did! Im in the aviation industry so ‘safety checks and balances’ are my thing. I felt every confidence in my pilot ‘Dave’. He also did a ‘touch and go’ on the water as we would touch down on tarmac at the airport and i would miss the opportunity of a water landing. What a thrill. My partner bought me this experience as a gift. I was Hesitant as i had never been on a small aircraft, but I absolutely loved it. Thanks Dave, Henry, and his beautiful partner who collected our luggage! highly recommend this tour operator
“Highly – recommend!” – June 2019
They made the proposal to my girlfriend one to be remembered. The entire time I was organizing the proposal they were helpful, patient and went out of their way in creating the most amazing experience for both of us. They were able to land at the exact place I wanted to propose and they were happy for us to have a walk up the beach. Well worth flying with Above and Beyond and would recommend them to anyone.
“Absolutely Fantastic” – May 2019
Hi We were staying in the hotel chancellor when we notice the sea air plane in the water the weather was absolutely perfect in the afternoon on a Sunday, I looked up sea air planes and Above &Beyond came up I rang an a gorgeous girl named Bonnie answered and was so delightful in her manners that it was easy with payment and meeting the pilot David who was also very nice and calm and before we new it we were taking off on water 💦,WOW it was awesome experience,breathtaking,stunning views from above .We throughly recommendable to anyone who wants or gets the chance to do it Worth every cent thanks you above and beyond for 1 of the highlight s of my trip in Tasmania 😊
“Awesome way to experience some of Tasmania’s most beautiful landscapes” – April 2019
Arranged a 1.5 hour flight for 4 friends from Hobart waterfront over the East coast to Maria Island. The views from the seaplane were simply stunning.We were able to see landscapes not normally visible by travel over ground -areas where no roads exist -beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters.Landed on Maria Island where we met wombats,wallaby,devils and cape barren geese. Both land and water takeoffs and landings were remarkably smooth, the overall experience being very comfortable. The staff are very professional and enthusiastic and went out of their way to ensure the best of experiences.Their knowledge of the area regarding history,wildlife and ecology was remarkable. Will definitely be booking again.
“Best way to see beautiful Hobart” – March 2019
We did the 30 minute city scenic flight and absolutely loved it! The staff were fantastic, highly experienced and it is a very professional operation. We had sensational views of Hobart and also flew to the south where we could admire the beauty of southern Tassie and Bruny Island. The Beaver seaplane is an absolute classic and Above & Beyond’s plane is in beautiful, recently restored condition. I am a pilot for a living and I felt very safe taking my wife along for this flight. This is the must do tour when in Tassie!
“Amazing” – February 2019
This was the best activity of my tour of Australia so far. The plane is gorgeous and the take off and landing were fun but really smooth. I would recommend this to everyone.
“Highlight of our holiday!!!” – January 2019
Our flight in the seaplane was without a doubt the highlight of our trip to Tasmania! We enjoyed a scenic flight on our last morning in Hobart and we’re so glad we did it. I am quite a nervous flyer and someone that gets motion sick (particularly on the water) but it was the smoothest flight, including takeoff and landing, I’ve ever been on… if only our flight back to Sydney was as smooth! Our pilot provided reassurance throughout the entire flight along with commentary on the city and coastlines below. The views were spectacular!! We could see so much more from this flight than from the top of Mt Wellington the day before, plus you get to see the mountain in all of its glory. If we return to Tasmania, taking another flight with the Above and Beyond team will be at the top of our to-do list. We hear the other destinations they fly to are just as beautiful. I can’t thank them enough for putting up with this nervous passenger and giving me an unforgettable experience!!!
“Breathtaking Experience” – January 2019
What an amazing way to spend the last day of 2018. A morning flight around Hobart and the coastline. It was my first time in a seaplane and I highly recommend it for anyone who would love to see Tassie’s amazing landscape. It’s the most breaktaking island and these photos don’t do it any justice. It was also so pretty so see all the yachts on the waterfront as we came into land. For someone who can get motion sick, I was completely fine. I was looking down and it was the smoothest landing I’ve ever felt in a plane. This really is an adventure for everyone. Enjoy :
“A must do for anyone in Hobart” – December 2018
We took our family on a Hobart scenic flight (2 adults, 3 kids aged 11, 8 and 3) with Above and Beyond and we all absolutely loved it. Such a unique experience to be able to motor out amongst the boats from Kings Pier and become airborne on the Derwent river. The scenery was amazing, the staff were friendly and helpful and the aircraft was beautiful. My daughter was a little nervous before we arrived but Henry, Dave and the team were so professional the she immediately relaxed and throughly enjoyed the whole flight. Thank you to the team at Above and Beyond for a truly unforgettable experience for the whole family.
“Bucket List” – December 2018
Awesome. From the moment we took off to landing a must do. Cannot rate high enough. The smile did not leave my face and the views are spectacular from in the air. Best way to see Hobart.
“Don’t hesitate. Just do it. Spectacular!” – December 2018
Best surprise Christmas present ever! Told my family at Franklin wharf only 20 mins before take off. Very excited! We were privileged to be some of the 1st flying guests to enjoy the new Above & Beyond 30 minute City Scenic flight. A beautiful route taking in Hobart, the coast, Bruny Island, Mount Wellington and the Derwent river. The friendly and helpful ground staff were at the wharf to welcome us and provide any assistance. In the hands of experienced pilot Jethro we enjoyed a smooth ride, with great commentary throughout. Loved the water landing! A brilliant day and one to remember.
