We did the greatest Gaua tour in March with Paul and it was a highlight of our trip. Flying right over a steaming volcano then landing on the huge crater lake was spectacular. It is a very different experience going from flying through the air to racing across the surface of the water in the same vehicle! Getting to actually fly the plane was a real bonus and an awesome experience. Paul is an excellent pilot and instructor so safety is not an issue The Dead Man's tour and Water music were fascinating. All up a great day!

Hello Paul, we hope you are well!
We hope you remember us from Rah Island. We can't thank you enough for the two trips you made for us. Both were highlights of our trip.
As soon as we get back to Santo we will be taking another trip with you. I'm really looking forward to visiting those less accessible volcanoes on Gaua and Ambrym.
I finally got around to uploading some clips on YouTube. Just google Seaplane Paul, Vanuatu Sea Planes, Rah Island or Mota Lava and you should find them under the name 'southpacific2u'. We hope you enjoy watching them.
Cheers for now,
Jo-Ann & Tim
PS - took quite a while & about 5 courses of antibiotics to fix Tim's leg but it finally came good! Dion made it back to Rah about 2 weeks after we left. He is happy and well. His family are delighted with all that happened.

This tour is not to be missed when visiting Espiritu Santo - I can highly recommend the experience from the very first moment when of climbing into the sea plane until the final touch down. Excilerating and exciting, but always with a complete feeling of safety, even when flying very low over the islands, reefs and water. One of those experiences that I will remember for a lifetime. I will be recommending this to all my guests at Hidden Cove eco Retreat. Thanks Paul for bringing such an exciting tour to Santo.

My boyfriend and i experienced the scenic flight tour 30min each way flying at only 100ft, the pilot Paul was very friendly and informative as we adventured through small sounding island of Espirit Santo the island we were staying at, Paul dropped us off at Ruta Private 5 Start Island Resort for Buffet lunch followed by cocktails lounging on the beach. The trip back was also amazing, the visual scenery, the colours in the water are crystal clear. This day trip is worth it.

Having flown some hours in a Jabiru, it was great to do some hands on flying in the buccaneer around Pt Villa seeing the sights from a few hundred feet off the ground. Paul is a great pilot and enjoyable to fly with. He may even tell you a great aviation poem if you ask him nicely. A fly in this plane while in Vanuatu is well reccomended. Great to meet you Paul.
