Captain Paul flew my husband and myself to Pentecost to see the land diving. Captain Paul is entertaining, informative and fun. We definitely be flying with flying with Captain Paul again.

You will be wowed by the little 3 seater that whisks you between islands. Fun, quick, and you will enjoy pilot Pauls conversation.

“The best start to our honeymoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

We spalshed out for our honeymoon, just this once. And boy did the seaplane transfer set the tone for our dream vacation in Vanuatu. The pilot was friendly, knowledgeable and you could tell he was an all round nice guy who had an enthusiasm for Vanuatu and flying. We got to see Vanuatu from such a wonderful perspective that i will never forget. My partner even got to fly the plane for a while - he's still talking about it a week later. A wonderful experience i will not forget.

“It's not a low flying plane, it's a high flying boat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

Ten of us flew with Paul (in three trips) to Pentecost and back over three days for the Land Diving. I think it's safe to say it was a major highlight of the trip for everyone. It was an amazing experience, to fly so low and wave to boaties and fisherman and to see our town of Luganville from the air was a real treat. Paul was the consummate professional and was a great pilot, teaching us how the planes works etc. Couldn't have felt safer or enjoyed the trip anymore. Thanks Paul!

“Fantastic Flight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

We recently took the 1 hour flight around Efate as part of our honeymoon in Vanuatu. It was a great experience. Beautiful scenery, a very knowledgable pilot, fantastic insights into the island - and even some introductory flying experience for my complete novice husband!! We got to fly low over some amazing reefs, plane wrecks, beaches - and even our hotel. The water landing and take off were great fun. It was so much fun and we'll remember it forever. Can't recommend it enough!
