Seymour the Seaplane

seymour the seaplane

Hi, my name is Seymour and I am a Seaplane. I have floats so I can cruise on the water like a boat, and wings so I can fly in the sky like a bird.

Written by Barbara Audas with Design & Illustration by Ray Besserdin, this wonderful children's book tells the story of Syemour the Seaplane as he takes us on a flight, taking off from the water at Williamstown, then flying over the MCG, Albert Park Lake, Luna Park, the colourful Brighton Bathing Boxes, then back home via the Westgate Bridge.

Fly, Drive and Dine - Bellarine Peninsula Tour

Melbourne Seaplanes, in partnership with Great Private Tours, is excited to be offering our new 'Fly, Drive and Dine' package - Bellarine Peninsula.

So, if you are celebrating something special or just wanting an indulgent day out, then this promises to be an experience you won't forget.

Here is what your day will be...

Leaving at around 9:30 am from our base at Williamstown, you'll fly in our Seaplane enjoying the spectacular scenery over Port Phillip Bay on your way to the seaside town of Portarlington on the Bellarine Peninsula. As we land and pull into the beach, your guide from Great Private Tours will be waiting to greet you.

You'll then be chauffeured in a luxury Mercedes Benz van to several of the best wineries and distilleries the Bellarine has to offer, where you'll have a chance to taste some boutique wines and spirits, which are a speciality of this region.

Then for lunch, you'll be treated to a fine dining experience of a gourmet 3 course meal at the spectacular Jack Rabbit Restaurant.

Finally, at the end of the day, you'll return to Melbourne via either our Seaplane, or be driven to your hotel or Williamstown, or by Port Phillip Ferry Services from Port Arlington to Docklands.

Brett was a fantastic pilot and tour guide. Such a pleasure to see our wonderful city from the air. I cannot recommend taking a flight with Melbourne Seaplanes highly enough.

Narelle G. - 8 Januray 2021

On the weekend my partner and I took 'The Ultimate Experience' with Melbourne Seaplanes. It was the perfect suprise present for Maddys 30th. Captain Brett & Barbara were amazing through the entire process and even booked a beach side window table for us for lunch. The views were also stunning & we gained lots of local knowledge & interesting facts from Captain Brett on the way to Sorrento & back. We highly recommend everyone does this at least once, we'll be back though for sure! Thanks again for an amazing day

What a fantastic journey. From the time we met Barbara to book our flight to the flight itself with the pilot Brett.....very professional. Would not hesitate to fly again with this ever so friendly company. Highly recommend this trip with excellent value for money.

What a fabulous experience. A short flight around Hobson's Bay with stunning views of Melbourne and surrounds. We live in the area so it was wonderful to see our home in a beautiful new way. Thanks to Rod for his amusing commentary & to Barb in her little box offering friendly local advice.

A Bird's Eyeview of Melbourne

What a wonderful way to see the Melbourne Skyline. Had a flight that took in the bay, the city of Melbourne and the Dandenongs. I am a nervous flyer but had no concerns on this flight!!! Wonderful service from the pilot Brett and his wife Barbara, great ambassadors for Melbourne tourism. Highly recommend.

A wonderful experience!

I booked a flight for my father and I as a birthday present for him. Not only was the flight an experience I think everyone should do, Barbara and Brett were lovely people to help me organise the trip and take us on our flight. We did the the Half Moon Bay flight which gave us amazing views of the coast, the city and even a shipwreck and old submarine! I was also pleasantly surprised with the smooth take off and landing for anyone who doesn't like bumpy rides
