The Secret ’s Out About Seaplane Destinations

The unique ability of seaplanes to get their feet wet makes getting there, wherever that is, more than half the fun of going. But, hey, whatever your destination may be in a seaplane, it’s bound to be a great place if only because it’s on the water, too. Flying to interesting, unique, and memorable destinations is central to the appeal of seaplane flying, and it’s in that spirit that we present the Destinations Directory.

We asked SPA Field Directors across the country to reveal their favorite “Lake Faraway” getaways for the benefit of members.  The Destinations Directory will be updated and published annually in Water Flying, but it will also be posted here on the Blog for 24-7 access.  Add your own favorite seaplane “destination” in the “Reply” section below (for your new destinations, please include as much of the data contained in the information boxes as possible).

(Please note: you may view this directory full screen, download or print the file, as well as zoom and search the document here.  Please use the tools at the top, bottom and side of the Scribd document frames. File may take a few moments to load.)
