What can I say, but the entire day was absolutely amazing!! Absolute value for money!!!The pilot was very professional, friendly and made the day very enjoyable for the two of us.

We set off from Seaworld Resort where they are located and flew to South Stradbroke Island. The flight was great. We got to see great birds eye views of the Gold Coast and the plane was comfortable.

When we arrived at the island there was the most amazing picnic set up for us. They had laid out a picnic rug, set up a table and chairs with an umbrella and the platter and beverages were there waiting for us on our arrival. We had sufficient time to enjoy the beach, sunbath and relax as well.

I could not have asked for it to be any more perfect and my boyfriend was over the moon. He absolutely loved it!! BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER DONE and I cannot recommend it more highly.

If you are looking for a way to WOW a special someone, then this is it!!

Had the most amazing and relaxing day! Seaplane flight was incredible - have never been in a small plane, let alone a seaplane and didn't know what to expect. I got to sit in the front with the pilot who explained everything and the views were awesome.

South Stradbroke Island is beautiful and unspoilt (very rare these days with developers!) and the people I met were so warm and friendly. It was nice to just have 'me time' and explore and relax without any pressure!

I have already told all my friends that they need to experience this and we are looking at something in the near future.

Highly recommend to everyone and anyone! Experience was WOW!

Wow! I have literally been on Cloud 9 since the minute I stepped into your little seaplane. I can't tell you how special it was to spend the day on the Gold Coast flying around in your sea plane. No one down here could believe what we had been up to.

I think I made a few girls jealous and a few guys angry that I had set the bar a little higher! Haha. Coby and I had such a blast and a lot of that was thanks to the way you made us feel so uncomfortable! Haha.

Thank you for your energy, and excitement but also your professionalism which has it's own laid back style. You actually did everything right. It was perfect. Here are a few photos. Thank you so much.

The sea plane flight to Straddie was AMAZING. The flight was fun, the island was gorgeous and the water sports at the other end were a lot of fun. I'd do this again in a second. I cannot thank Pete (pilot) enough, he made our day perfect. THANKS MATE!!

This experience was priceless. The pilot was very friendly and made the whole day perfect. It is the perfect experience for couples as I asked my girlfriend to marry me on the island and she said yes. Latter she said that she could not imagine a better day. Thankyou.


Robert Webb



Absolutely amazing experience. Proposed to my girlfriend on the day and Peter the pilot was outstanding in his efforts to make it the perfect day it was. Seafood was so fresh and tasty, the flight was packed full of adventure. If you ever want to do something out of the ordinary I recommend you do this. To top it off Paula said yes.

This was an amazing experience and our host was fantastic. It was a surprise for my husband and he played along with it and made it so perfect for us. Can't speak highly enough of Cloud 9 and the service etc.
