It’s a skinny barrier island almost nine miles long located off the southern shore of Long Island with some of the world’s best beaches. For many New Yorkers it is the ultimate destination for summer fun. To help you get there, Shoreline Aviation Seaplane Services will be providing flights between the 23rd Street Seaplane Base in Manhattan and The Pines at Fire Island. The new service will begin on June 29th operating on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The Saturday morning flight will stop at Fire Island and then proceed to East Hampton for those passengers who weren’t lucky enough to get out of the city on Friday evening.

Flights take just 30 minutes. Shoreline Aviation will be working with a launch service operated by Fire Island VIP. You can reach them at 631-256-7367. Once the planes land in front of The Pines, passengers will transfer by launch between the airplane and a dock at The Pines. All flights will require a minimum of four passengers.

There are many places to stay including hotels, guest houses and home rentals. You can check them all out online. You can also find information on restaurants, beaches you should visit, National and state parks, and lists of weekend activities. Fire Island is a great playground for those looking for a quick escape from Manhattan. Shoreline Aviation’s seaplanes can make getting there even quicker!
