594 New South Head Rd., Rose Bay Marina, Sydney, New South Wales

Visitors looking to slip “the surly bonds of earth” seek out this aeronautical operation, which started in 1996 and is now run by pilot/owner Steve Krug, who has been taking wing since 1974 and has thousands of water landings on his résumé. With his partner Jenny Belfield, Krug is the pilot responsible for taking tourists and locals above Sydney and its waters. The DeHavilland Beaver seaplane takes off from Rose Bay Marina or Palm Beach; purely scenic flights range from 15 minutes to an hour. Longer journeys include “fly and dine” trips to places like the Cottage Point Inn.
