Blue skies peppered with puffy white clouds welcomed us as we rose. Gentle breezes rocked us as we flew north aboard the seaplane we shared with one other couple during the one hour flight. The panoramic views more than made up for the slightly warm interior of the plane and the less than comfortable seats.
In every direction we saw the striking colorful scenery of the lakes with mountain profiles sometimes gracing the horizon. There were lake villages and a few waterside homes in idyllic settings. At times the reflection of the blazing sun on the lake’s calm waters sprang back to make us squint as we rounded west and then south about half way up Moosehead Lake. Too soon we returned. As we said our good byes I almost wanted to climb back aboard for a second flight.
Children It was possible for children of all ages to enjoy scenic flights.
Description Booking was easy. After visiting the company website and reading the flyer I called. Sue described the options in greater detail, let me know which flights had availability and explained that if we had a minimum of two passengers she had some time availability remaining. We picked a time and flight type and made our way there following Sue’s directions. Once there, we found her in an office and souvenir shop where we paid.
In addition to Greenville on departure and return and the two lakes the flight included views of Squaw Mountain, Mount Kineo, and the Spencer Mountains.
