What You'll Get


From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon to San Diego Seaplanes. Flights depart from and return to Montgomery Field Airport. Choose from the following options:

  • For $99, you get a 20-minute whale-watching flight and postflight beverage for one (a $199 value).
  • For $190, you get a 20-minute whale-watching flight and postflight beverage for two (a $395 value).
  • For $375, you get a 20-minute whale-watching flight and postflight beverage for four (a $785 value).

San Diego Seaplanes steers passengers on airborne cruises, offering bird’s-eye views of the San Diego skyline and the surrounding coastline. The amphibious flight machine is capable of landing on solid ground as well as treating passengers to at least one water landing, bested only by sightseeing tours conducted from the back of a winged crocodile. Passengers can sip on the sights of the coast, including sea lions, dolphins, and great blue whales, or witness California gray whales as they migrate from Alaska to the gold-mining jobs and preferable school systems of Baja, California. Although not guaranteed to see marine life, picturesque views of the coast, Sea World, Naval bases, and other famous locales are plentiful. A postflight glass of wine, champagne, or a nonalcoholic beverage bolster the elevated sense of adventure. Drinks can be redeemed at one of three airport locals: Casa Machado Mexican Restaurant, 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant, or Pampas Argentine Bar & Grill.

Water landings are subject to windy or wavy weather conditions.

About San Diego Seaplanes


Ordinarily it's bad news if your plane is in the water, but not so at San Diego Seaplanes, where the flying machines are made for aquatic takeoffs and landings. On any given day, the small planes whisk passengers in a romantic journey from the water's surface up into the air above San Diego, where they can survey the skyline, see California grey whales below, swoop over Coronado Island, and take in the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld.

Despite its name, San Diego Seaplanes doesn't only serve America's Finest City. The pilots also transport passengers around the Hawaiian Islands, Baja California, and areas of the Caribbean known for their dolphins that race the planes.
