We took a marvelous flight over Wineglass Bay. Our pilot was friendly and professional and gave us lots of information about what we were looking at. It was an amazing adventure and we'll always remember how beautiful it was. Well worth the cost! We would do it again in a heartbeat.

I gave my partner a 60 minute voucher for Christmas which gave him the choice of two different flights. He chose the one that went down to Maria Island and it was breathtaking. Our pilot was great, very informative about the area which is impressive for a non local as she is from Queensland.

There were a few moments for me of being queasy but that can happen to me standing on a pier watching water move and I had stupidly forgot to take a travel sickness tablet before we took off. Apart from the self inflicted queasy the flight was great and we got some wonderful pics and views of the area before actually walking into Wineglass Bay the next day.

If you can do it don't hesitate, worth every cent!

We tinkered with the idea of a light plane trip over the Freycinet Peninsula but the day started out grey and gloomy and the walk to the Wineglass Bay lookout a bit of a disappointment as the water was a dull grey/blue, not the brilliant blue we expected.

As we drove towards Bicheno, we decided to see "Friendly Beaches" and what a great piece of coastline this is...see it if you can.
On the way there we passed the airstip and made a spur of the moment decision to take the flight over the Peninsula.

The sun came out, there was a spot for us an hour later, so we booked and never regretted our decision. The views are spectacular and our pilot most competent and friendly.

A memorable tour worth doing.

My husband and I were looking forward to the scenic flight with Freycinet air after we were recommended by a Tassie local during a hike. Mitchell was polite and informative over the phone. Unfortunately the wind had picked up a lot on the day when we wanted to go and Mitchell warned about the turbelence and a rough flight if we decide to go, so ended up making the decision not to take the risk. Thankyou for being so honest. It's not all about money. We would definitely go back next time we are in Tassie. :-)

A great way to see Freycinet from above. Pilot Mitchell was great, very informative. Was a bit windy when we went up so a bit nervousness going through some turbulence. So glad we did it.
