  • Overview
    Experience San Francisco from a completely new perspective as you soar majestically over its famous landmarks, beautiful coastline and vibrant streets. Climb aboard your state of the art sea plane and glide through the Californian sky for a half hour flight that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Look out over the Golden Gate National Reserve and fly over the iconic Golden Gate Bridge itself. Get a bird’s eye view of the infamous island prison of Alcatraz, the AT&T Park, the busy streets of downtown San Francisco and much more.

    Many people have toured San Francisco by land or by sea but only a handful can say that they have looked out over this diverse and cosmopolitan city from above. Feel the adrenaline rush as you take off from the charming bayside village of Sausalito and begin your flight in your small aircraft.

    Fly along the coast over the Golden Gate National Reserve past Baker Beach and the Pt. X Lighthouse before bearing left over the legendary Golden Gate Bridge herself. Continue on above Crissy Field, Downtown San Francisco and the AT&T Park, home of the Major League Baseball World Champions the San Francisco Giants. Circle over the infamous island prison of Alcatraz, once home to the nation’s most dangerous criminals before completing your flight with a pass by the historic Angel Island, the immigrant gateway to the west. No other tour can match this unforgettable experience!
