Seaplane or Helicopter ? Let’s Find Out

Deciding between a Seaplane Tour & Helicopter Tour ?

A Seaplane ride is calmer (no noise of the blades), gives you a more scenic view (big windows) and most importantly offers you an amazing water take-off which you cannot experience on a helicopter ride. The prices offered by both tours are comparable. In a nutshell, when deciding between a Seaplane tour and a Helicopter tour, a Seaplane tour wins hands down.
