What's Your Favorite Seaplane Destination?
Shoreline Aviation provides seaplane charter service throughout the Northeastern US, The Bahamas, Southeastern Florida, The US & British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the islands of the Eastern Caribbean.
During the summer season we provide regular seaplane service between New York City (from the 23rd Street Seaplane Base in Manhattan) and The Hamptons and Shelter Island. Charter flights are available to the resort destinations of the Northeast including Newport, RI, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Chesapeake Bay, the Adirondacks, and the lakes and harbors of New England. Taking a seaplane to your vacation destination is convenient and saves you precious time.
In the winter, you can find us serving the islands of The Bahamas from our base in Nassau. We also provide regular seaplane service between St. Thomas Airport and North Sound, Virgin Gorda and other points in the BVI. Charter service is available from San Juan or the USVI to all points in the Caribbean, including St Barth’s, Anguilla and Antigua.
We can fly you directly to resorts, remote islands, private yachts, or fishing
lodges. For those looking for a little adventure, we offer day trips as well as sightseeing tours. It’s all part of the fun!
