I believe this business is no longer available

While researching Safari Seaplanes I learned they switched names and is now a island hopping airline. Not sure about the charter business anymore.

Didn't do an typical day trip excursion, but was staying on Cat Island and needed to get to a wedding on Harbour Island (100 miles north) and didn't want to loose a full day flying back to Nassau to get to Eleuthera to then boat to Harbour Island - Safari Seaplanes was kind enough to give me and the wife...

We booked months ahead of time to get a sea plane for our honeymoon when we booked with Safari seaplanes. When we showed up at the airport they told us the seaplane was in "Maintenance" and that they had another plane for us. It wasn't a sea plane. WE PAID for the experience of a sea plane and we didn't... More

My fiance and I chartered a seaplane in Bahamas for a day. It was FANTASTIC. Paul was an awesome pilot, knowledgeable about the plane he owned and the islands we were visiting. He took us to Harbour Island and The Exumas to see the pigs. We spent the entire day with him and it was amazing. I highly recomend this... More

My lady and I booked a flight from Nassau to Tiamo Resort on Andros Island. Taxi ride from Nassau Main Airport to the smaller Odyssey Airport took less then 5 minutes. Paul, the pilot and owner of the plane, seems to be a living legend here cause everyone seems to know him. He showed up right on time and from... More

We used Safari for transport to Fowl Cay from Nassau on 3/12/13. The plane is in pristine condition, and Paul is a very skilled pilot. Reasonable price, perfect service, on time and thoroughly professional. Very highly recommended, and certainly the best way to Fowl Key.

Neither of us had been on a sea plane when we booked a trip to Tiamo in South Andros for a special holiday in 2010. Paul was super, such a gent. It was very scary for me initially but once I'd relaxed, it was brilliant.I sat in the back and hubbie sat in the co-pilot's seat in the front taking... More

The experience was phenomenal! Without a doubt it was the highlight of our trip. We fully recommend Safari Seaplanes without any reservation. It started with us emailing Paul and Julia several times over the course of a month with questions and requests about a trip from NAS to the Exuma Cays for our Mom's birthday. They were not only gracious... More
