Overview

AUCKLAND SEAPLANES operates from the Auckland Harbour Aerodrome from where the first pioneering flying boats flew 80 years ago. Fast forward to today; Auckland Seaplane's 8-seater De Havilland Beaver Floatplane can be seen taking off from the heart of the City of Sails and flying to stunning island destinations in the Hauraki Gulf and beyond. Auckland Tourism comments that the Seaplane is an exciting and welcome addition to the Auckland tourism palette, bringing an air of swashbuckling adventure, history and romance to the Wynyard Quarter. A region as vast and majestic as the Auckland region can only be truly appreciated form the air. Our aerodrome is the most convenient departure point for passengers given its walking distance from many hotels, the main shopping district and its good connection to the public transport/ferry network. The Hauraki Gulf's pristine beaches and bays serve as destinations for the seaplane. Passengers can enjoy scenic flights, wine-tastings, dining, overnight stays, transfers, adventure tours, fishing trips in breath-taking locations. The possibilities are endless! Our team is composed of qualified pilots and professionals, eager to provide a unique, first-class experience to locals and tourists alike. We have nationalities covering all corners of the globe, all passionate about showcasing the beauty, culture and possibility of the Auckland Region.

What a great team and experience. Highly recommended. Great commentary and updates on what was going on. Just an awesome way to see the city and surrounding islands of the Hauraki Gulf and a very unique way to get to your destination. :)

Great trip over the auckland islands, we missed our flight and they were good enough to put us on the next available flight rather than turning us around. Thank you very much!
