Four of us went up out of Tavares with our pilot Rob... we booked it last-minute while walking around Wooten Park. What a great time! Rob was very informative and friendly. Taking off and landing on the water is too cool. I highly recommend Jones Brothers!! :-D

We did the sea plane as part of a sea, air and land package and are so pleased we did. Although only 15-20 minutes long there was plenty packed in for us and our pilot was excellent. Bonus was I got a front seat and could watch the skill that went into flying the plane. Would recommend to anyone

We visited Mount Dora for the day and booked the "Splash and Dash" experience. It's been a lifelong ambition to take to the skies from the water and we weren't disappointed. The sight of the seaplane approaching from the far distance, landing, and then taxiing to the jetty was enough to bring goosebumps to my skin! Whilst the flight was... More

We,were going to do the land water and air trip but it was too hot so we opted for a longer air trip which was well worth it.Rob,our pilot was very friendly and informitive during the flight and we will do the other on our return.

Took a half hour seaplane tour of the Harris chain of several lakes, part of the Ocala National Forest, Eustis, Mt Dora and Tavares. Loved it! Tavares is a great little jewel and is a perfect Florida getaway for those who find places like Orlando and its attractions overwhelming.

My husband and I did this flight for 15 mins. I am scared of heights, but the pilot was awesome. He was relaxed and confident which made me feel calm. I am so glad we did this. Beautiful sights and amazing feeling of accomplishment.

My parents and I went on a 30 minute sea plane tour of the lakes and county. This was fantastic!! It was so neat to see the landscape (and waterscape) of this area. It was beautiful, and Paul, our pilot, gave a great explanation of what we were looking at. I highly recommend this tour!!

We did the seaplane ride included in the Air Land and Sea package and it was the absolute best. Our guide was so nice and the three of us (me, my father, and sister) had so much fun. We are already looking into coming back!
